I’ve been all over this “Rust” shooting story. This is an interesting twist in the sad story.
Alec Baldwin may not be speaking out about the investigation into the accidental “Rust” set shooting directly. He – and those directly involved with the production of the film, “Rust” – are speaking out. Specifically, Baldwin has begun pushing back against the narrative that his operation was a shoddy one.
As you’ll recall, Baldwin has insisted that there was a “very, very well-oiled crew” behind the film. Taking to Insta, he’s begun sharing the thoughts of “Rust” crew members who agree. Like costume designer Terese Magpale Davis, who calls BS on claims of “chaotic” working conditions. Davis says the crew was housed and well-rested, especially the day of the tragedy, and weren’t overworked.
The statement extends across several more posts. Includes, notes about their union representation, the non-union camera crew that joined the shoot, and people defending the armorer and producers. Check out the posts below.
