Terese Davis posted that she was ‘sick’ of narrative about western movie
Alec Baldwin has shared a Rouiller crew member’s Instagram post in which they denied reports the set where a cinematographer was shot dead had “unsafe, chaotic conditions”.
Baldwin, who fired the fatal shot from what he believed was a safe “cold gun”, took to Instagram and captioned the post, “Read this.”
“I’m so sick of this narrative. I worked on this movie. The story being spun of us being overworked and surrounded by unsafe, chaotic conditions is bulls**t,” wrote costumer designer Terese Magpale Davis.
She then wrote about the hours worked by the crew on the New Mexico set of the western movie, and denied that they had been “too tired to do their jobs”.
“This is all provable by daily time sheets," elle a ajouté.
She also addressed the reported issues with hotels, which was given as a reason the union camera crew member left the set on the morning of the fatal accident that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
“The camera crew HAD hotels. They just didn’t feel they they were fancy enough,” she claimed in her post.
She also defended the movie’s producers, writing that “concerns were heard and addressed”.
She also defended the hiring of set armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed and assistant director Dave Halls, writing that Ms Gutierrez-Reed came with “great references”.
She also stated that Mr Halls “never seemed flippant about safety”, but she admitted he had seemed “stressed” on the day of the shooting because of the crew walkout and that “obviously he screwed up majorly that day”.
pourtant, elle a ajouté: “We had several safety meetings. Sometimes multiple per day.”
Baldwin conducted a roadside press conference in Vermont on Saturday saying that he was cooperating with investigators and that he has been speaking to police every day since the shooting.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department said last week that it is still investigating the incident and that it was “too early” to comment on any charges that may be brought.
Baldwin discharged the gun he says he was told was “cold” on set on 21 octobre, killing Ms Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.
Filming of the movie has been suspended pending investigations.
