The frustration of the cameramen and other staff at the filming must have been about compensation and working hours, writes the LA Times, but there were also views that the security was not sufficient.

A person who works in the film team tells the newspaper that there was a "serious lack of security meetings at the filming location".

The same source states that on Saturday, the days before the fatal shooting, there were two misfires with a prop pistol and that the week before there was another.

The film company has not yet commented on this information.

Three sources in the New York Times also say that there have been at least two misfires in a short time.

Left in protest

The female cinematographer who was killed during the filming of the western film Rust in New Mexico is said to have been one of those who raised her voice for better conditions on the set.

The same day she was killed, camera crews left the filming location in protest and other people were then led in so that production could continue.

More details about the circumstances of the accident are now appearing.

The scene that was to be recorded was a shooting scene in a church, where Alec Baldwin's character would back out of the church.

Police have heard several people, including Baldwin, who have said he is cooperating fully.

It has also seized items from the filming location.

No person is suspected in the investigation.
