Rust Movie Set Filming: New Bodycam, Police Interviews Released

SANTA FE, New Mexico — New body camera footage and police interviews have been released in connection with the shooting of the movie ‘Rust,’ in which actor-producer Alec Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October.

The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department said it is releasing everything related to its ongoing investigation, including hours of video and hundreds of pages of documents.

In a video filmed shortly after the tragedy, you can see Alec Baldwin in costume and hat while speaking to officers.

Investigators ask him to change, but before he walks away, officers ask Baldwin how long they’ve been filming. The actor tells officers they have been filming for about two and a half weeks.

In another video, the footage shows officers walking through the set where the shooting took place.

Investigators are seen in a church talking to crew members as they try to understand what happened.

The police also released the first interview with Baldwin. He asks the officers if he is accused of anything. Investigators respond and say it’s just an interview.

Baldwin then goes on to explain what happened.

The whole incident originally happened on October 21, 2021 at a ranch on the outskirts of Santa Fe.

Baldwin pointed a gun at cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during preparations for filming a scene in a small church when she went off, killing Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.

Baldwin said in a December interview with ABC News that he pointed the gun at Hutchins under her direction on the Western film set in New Mexico when she went off without pulling the trigger.

The new worker safety report confirms that Baldwin was handed a large-caliber revolver by an assistant director, David Halls, without consulting with on-set weapons specialists during or after the weapon was loaded.

Regulators note that Halls also served as safety coordinator and that he was present and witnessed two accidental shots from guns on set and that he and other managers who knew about the misfires took no investigative, corrective, or disciplinary action. Crew members expressed surprise and uneasiness.

Rust Movie Productions said through a spokesman that it would appeal the findings and the sanction.
