Halyna Hutchins


The British Society of Cinematographers wishes to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed yesterday while working on the film ‘Rust’. Our thoughts go out to all those working on the production and in the wider New Mexico filmmaking community. 

A cinematographer anywhere in the world is a colleague and friend and we mourn their loss, especially one so young and whose career was all before them. 

How this tragedy happened will be investigated in time, but once again we contemplate a death on set that should never, ever have happened.
