Cinematographer Helena Hutchins posted photos of herself on the set of Rust a few days before she was accidentally shot by actor Alec Baldwin.
The production team set up home in early October at Bonanza Creek Ranch outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Unfortunately, tragedy struck when 63-year-old Alec was filming a scene on set that required him to fire a gun that was filled with empty space.
But, the gun fired either shrapnel or a bullet, which hit Halina and director Joel Souza.
Hours before the violent accident, Alec posed in character on set in an Instagram post.
He was pictured in front of his trailer wearing a hat while wearing dirty cowboy boots, a vest and a bandana.
The actor added: “Back in the office in person. Blimy… It’s exhausting.”
Meanwhile, in a final Instagram post, 42-year-old Halina shared a photo of herself riding a horse while filming Rust.
In the selfie video, she was smiling while her horse was blowing the wind behind fellow riders under a black cowboy hat.
In her post, Halyana wrote: “One of the benefits of shooting a western is that you get to ride horses on your day off.”
Alec accidentally shoots Halina to death, leaving director Joel in critical condition.
An earlier statement to Santa Fe County Sheriff Juan Rios was disclosed: “The sheriff’s office confirms that two individuals were shot on the set of Rust.
“Helena Hutchins, 42, director of photography and director Joel Souza, 48, were shot after a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 63, producer and actor.”
