Her death shouldn’t have happened,” said Pecos. “Everyone deserves to go to work knowing they’ll be able to return home safely. This has shaken all of us to the very core. May her memory be eternal and her life not lived in vein.
“At the center of our being is an awareness of an end to a valued and treasured relationship. Our hearts ache, our tears flow,” added Pecos. “We feel a deep and tender wound because someone dear to us is no longer a part of oar life, but we can also rejoice to have known that love, and we are not alone in our grief or… our memories.”
The event’s third speaker was IATSE Local 480’s Bryan Evans, who acknowledged that the loss of Hutchins “is going to be a pain that’s felt for a very long time.”Evans noted the importance of making sure that what happened to Hutchins on set “never happens again,” while asking for IATSE members to remain united, “as we go through this really tragic and terrible time.” headtopics.com
The final speaker of the night was an unidentified crew member fromRust who first met Hutchins around seven weeks ago, quickly coming to know her as a generous, “wonderful woman,” who shared his passion for discussing “the nerdiest stuff,” when it came to filmmaking.

“I would’ve been lucky to ever do another movie with a person like that,” the visibly emotional crew member added. “She’s a wonderful mom and wife, and was just a wonderful soul, and I really hope more people like her exist.”Hutchins died on Friday following an accident involving a prop gun on the
