A ‘Go Fund Me’ page set up by the International Cinematographers Guild, IATSE Local 600, has raised more than $100,000 to assist the family of Halyna Hutchins, the director of photography who was accidentally shot and killed on Thursday while filming the movie Rust in New Mexico. She is survived by her husband, Matthew, and her 9-year-old son.

We encourage you to donate if you can.” In less than 24 hours, more than 1,300 people have donated more than $104,000 to the Local’s fund-raising campaign.
