The report, newly published by the Los Angeles Times, states that camera operators had asked for hotel rooms close to the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where filming was taking place.

“They didn’t want to spend an extra two hours driving to and from Albuquerque on Interstate 25, a rural four-lane highway with a 75-mph speed limit,” the newspaper noted.

Alec Baldwin's new movie stops production after filming incident causes crew member's death

  Alec Baldwin's new movie stops production after filming incident causes crew member's death Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins has tragically died.Deadline reports that it happened when Alec Baldwin "discharged" a prop gun while filming a scene on Thursday (October 21) at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

At first, hotel rooms were indeed provided, but at the start of the second week, some people were told the rooms would no longer be available, while others were moved to other locations, Lane Luper, the camera crew department head, told the newspaper.

A spokeswoman for the producers told the publication that “hotel rooms were provided to camera operators and other crew members” and noted that union regulations (coming from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, or IATSE) required rooms be provided if certain criteria were met, ie if people worked for more than 13 hours a day or if a person lived more than 60 miles from the set.

“The Albuquerque crew members lived 49 to 54 miles from set,” the LA Times noted.

A union representative told producers the accommodations provided seemed “fair”, the LA Times reported citing a person close to the production.

But the atmosphere on the set reportedly grew increasingly tense. One person on the production staff reportedly ordered “custom black long-sleeve T-shirts, with ‘Error 404: Housing Not Found’ and ‘ABQ is an hour away’ printed on them,” the paper wrote, noting that a photo of the shirts was shared with the publication.

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died and director Joel Souza was injured after Alec Baldwin fired a gun that was being used as a prop on the set on 21 October.

An investigation is ongoing. Authorities in New Mexico have said there was “complacency” on the set and have yet to rule on whether charges will be filed.

Baldwin has expressed his “shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins” and said he is “fully cooperating” with investigators.
