Alec Baldwin ‘Rust’ set shooting recreated in video simulation

In support of their wrongful death lawsuit against Alec Baldwin and numerous others involved in the “Rust” movie production, lawyers for the family of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins released a video simulation of the on-set gunshot that left her dead in Santa Fe in October.

“The morning that Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed, tensions among the crew and cast regarding safety on the ‘Rust’ set had boiled over,” the narrator says, before text messages between an upset cameraman who quit the film and the movie’s unit production manager scroll across the screen.

The digitally rendered clip is almost 10 minutes long. It breaks down a series of allegations in the lawsuit claiming Baldwin and other people involved with the movie failed to meet at least 15 industry standards for safe weapons handling – including failing to treat the gun at all times as if it were loaded.
