With Alec Baldwin now facing litigious trouble over the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, lawyers for the deceased’s family are now releasing a detailed animated reenactment of the tragic incident.

The shooting, which occurred on the set of the movie “Rust”, occurred when Baldwin discharged a loaded firearm in rehearsal, striking and killing Hutchins and injuring others.   The weapon, which somehow was loaded with a live round, went off despite Baldwin’s claim that he never pulled the trigger.

The legal team representing the Hutchins family has gone to great lengths to try to explain the incident.

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.

Parts of the video were available on YouTube on Wednesday:

Baldwin was not only acting in the film, but producing it as well, which would lead to a complicated matter of culpability for the Hollywood A-lister.
