As some of you may have heard On October 21, 2021, Halyna Hutchins a director of photography was working in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on the set of the Western film Rust, when actor Alec Baldwin discharged a gun used as a prop, mortally wounding her and injuring director Joel Souza. She died later that day. I had the honor of scoring a film that she was director of photography on called Snowbound. We never met, it’s not uncommon that a composer does not interact with a film crew since my work involved post production of the music however, I can say a film can feel like a child to me and I’m sure for a DP a film can feel like their child. Regardless there’s always a sense of community and a shared connection when you are involved in the arts especially for a long duration of time. I thought I share a poster of our film and a link to a cause that she championed.
