During the trial, Baldwin’s role came under scrutiny, with claims of negligence and his significant influence as a producer, writer, and lead actor. Witnesses suggested Baldwin’s behavior on set, including an incident where he fired a round after a “cut” call, potentially contributed to safety concerns.

Gutierrez’s defense raised questions about Baldwin and the first assistant director’s influence on her duties.

Crew members expressed concerns about Baldwin’s powerful role, with few challenging him on set. Baldwin insisted he was solely a creative producer and not responsible for gun safety. However, testimony indicated his dominant presence on the low-budget film.
