It won't take a while. An autopsy would quickly reveal exactly what killed the woman, even if they don't recover the bullet (which they usually can). The wound channel will indicate everything - the shape of the projectile & the path & angle. Plaster casts are made of the wound channel - a technique developed by Dr. Thomas Nogouchi many years ago - who was Los Angeles' Coroner.You are right of course, something went very wrong here.
It may take a while, but in the end I suspect we will find out what it was.
Seems to me it should be a requirement. If Baldwin had done so, and remembered and followed the safety parts this would have been avoidable.Sometimes, actors who are not familiar with firearms will undergo professional training with live ammo to familiarize themselves with gun safety & function. I think it's a good idea.
If they made it seem real, it wouldn't ruin a movie for me. I've already chuckled at those old Westerns where they get 30 shots out of six shooters & older movies where guns never needed to be reloaded.Win, do you think it would ruin a movie for you if they used guns that weren't functional at all, say, real guns filled with plastic? The sound men would have to add the bang and the special effects guys could add a flash. I know I could not tell the difference, but for someone who knows guns would it seem fake?
In order to fire a gun (whether it's loaded with blanks or real ammo), you have to pull the trigger. In order to pull the trigger, your finger has to be on it. When the director says "Action" the scene probably called for Baldwin to shoot.Apparently an assistant director handed the gun to Baldwin and told him it wasn't loaded so there was some sort of miscommunication between the armorer and the assistant director. Dunno how many people handled it between those two.
I still don't understand why it was pointed at the cinematographer or why Baldwin didn't follow basic gun safety guidelines such as not putting a finger on the trigger unless he had made the decision to shoot immediately. Cannot imagine that he didn't know of instances in which people were harmed on set by blanks.
Also they said there were union issues including a walkout. Sounds like they were losing control of the set.Baldwin won’t be blamed for the shooting. His production company will be for cutting cost corners, if the rumours are true.
No, it doesn’t.If it actually was a real bullet it seems to me something more than carelessness may have been involved. As several have said there is no reason to have a real bullet on the set... Just doesn't add up.
