The audio recordings of 911 calls made by the crew of Alec Baldwin's film Rust have revealed desperate attempts to save their colleague, and allegations of negligence.

Mamie Mitchell, the script supervisor of the film, made the call after Baldwin accidentally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and director Joel Souza, 48.

The group were filming the Western film in the desert outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Thursday when the tragedy happened.

In her call, Mitchell, a veteran script supervisor with credits dating back to 1974, points the finger at the assistant director, accusing him of negligence.

Mitchell calls 911 and tells the woman answering: 'We need an ambulance out at Bonanza Creek Ranch right now. We have had two people accidentally shot on a movie set accidentally.'

While she is on the phone, Mitchell is instructing another person to 'clear the road' to allow the ambulance easy access to the site.

Mitchell is then transferred to the Santa Fe fire and EMS, and, sounding panicked, urges a swift response.

'Bonanza Creek ranch. We have had two people accidentally shot on a movie set by a prop gun.

'We need help immediately. Bonanza Creek ranch. Come on.'

The 911 operators then asks Mitchell for her details.

Mitchell, who has worked on films including No Country For Old Men, Sicario and 3:10 to Yuma, can be heard saying: 'It sounds like somebody else is calling for ambulances.

'Everybody should be. We need some help.

'Our director and our camerawoman has been shot.'

She then asks someone on set: 'Are they going to take him to the road?'

The 911 operator asks: 'So, was it loaded with a real bullet or what?'

Mitchell replies: 'I don't, I cannot tell you that. We have two injuries from a movie gunshot.'

While the phone operator is inputting the details, Mitchell can be heard telling someone else: 'OK, this f****** AD that yelled at me at lunch asking about revisions, this motherf*****.

'Did you see him lean over my desk and yell at me? He's supposed to check the guns. He's responsible for what happened.' 

According to a search warrant filed in a Santa Fe court, the gun was one of three that the film's armorer, Hannah Gutierrez, had set on a cart outside the wooden structure where a scene was being acted. 

Assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds, a detective wrote in the search warrant application.
