bit of a weird one all around this, either extreme
incompetence or something out of an episode of Columbo with
Patrick McGoohan

BALDWIN! was also producing the movie.

directing, the director, most people know that. seeing
through the camera; yelling at the actors for more feeling.

producing, though... despite years of harvey weinstein
stories, most people would be like: uhhh... they....
produce... movies?

producing means you hire the directory, facilitate the
director hiring actors, get together the team to run
everything on the set, etc etc

...and, to quote the LA Times (they're ok i guess?):

As the camera crew — members of the International
Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees — spent about an
hour assembling their gear at the Bonanza Creek Ranch,
several nonunion crew members showed up to replace them, two
of the knowledgeable people said.

One of the producers ordered the union members to leave the
set and threatened to call security to remove them if they
didn’t leave voluntarily.

“Corners were being cut — and they brought in nonunion
people so they could continue shooting,” the knowledgeable
person said.

The Knowledgeable Person; sounds solid

but, still, i can see BALDWIN! "producing" this and suddenly
it's not as easy as the thot and production is in the hole
and hey let's just jam it through

it would be super ironic if panic over time and budget from
producer fail led to him being doubly liable

i suppose i'm supposed to be Respectful and/or Sensitive,
but alec BALDWIN! has the IQ of expired milk and every time
he's quoted in the press, it's like "i wish he would just
shut the fuck up" and so not only am i having a right laugh
over all this, but i am cautiously optimistic the press will
stop quoting him and i can finally forget how he ruined hunt
for red october by not being harrison ford.

I feel pretty bad for him. Unless he's a real sociopath this
is gonna fuck him up for a long time.

I really enjoyed his performances in Glengarry Glen Ross and
The Departed. Beetlejuice too ofc. He's been an idiot on
social media though for sure, and he should probably never
post anything again after this.

The far right are gonna have at anything he says because he
made fun of Trump and is anti gun, and the far left are
gonna have at him because they don't give a shit about
situational context and he's a patriarchal white male.

Mark my words, first reply to anything he says from either
camp is gonna be like "Yo remember when you shot and killed
a woman?"

Man is just gonna have to disconnect from it all and work
through this.

The press tour for the newly released Boss Baby 2 is
going to be awkward to say the least.

The general ambiance is to feel terrible for the deceased
and upset at the lack of discipline. Baldwin himself isn’t
mentioned much. I feel bad for him. I doubt he was liked on
the set much, mind you: those present that have been
interviewed haven’t mentioned him, or at least been quoted
mentioning him.

if baldwin is the producer then he his the one cutting
corners. if he didn't take the necessary precautions then i
don't know why we should feel sorry for him

Even if he literally did everything wrong behind the scenes,
he still fired a gun expecting a blank and shot a bullet
which killed a woman instead.

Shouldn't that be cause to feel sorry for someone
regardless? Why does everyone take such a *stand* on every
last little piece of shit these past 5 years? Some bullshit
idea about a just world? Unless you act in exactly the most
pious, righteous way at all times we're gonna consider you a
subhuman unworthy of even basic consideration. I don't get
it any more. Am I just retarded?

There are many different kinds of producers btw. Some are
strictly financial, some are script supervisors, some are
studio execs, some run the day to day operations and some
work exclusively with casting etc. Epic's description was
overly simple.

i don't think he's an executive producer

and all i'm saying was if you did it wrong behind the scenes
then you can't expect the gun to shoot a blank assuming he
had responsibility as a producer of course

Will be interesting to see who was the one responsible for
cutting corner and hiring flaky none union workers, will be
a big investigation
