The Mark Milsome Foundation are shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the killing of D.o.P. Halyna Hutchins and the injury of director Joel Souza on the set of “Rust” shooting in New Mexico. This comes at a time when the Foundation will be marking the fourth anniversary next month of cameraman Mark Milsome’s death on set. It is particularly poignant as the Foundation are currently filming a health and safety course designed to give greater awareness and improve the safety of productions. There must be greater accountability. All accidents are a result of unsafe acts and negligence and more focus and clarity is needed to make those responsible pay for their actions. We should never see these circumstances repeated. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this awful tragedy.
This foundation was inspired by the achievements, character and unique nature of our respected friend and colleague, Mark Milsome who was killed whilst filming a car stunt in Ghana in November 2017
