Film cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was killed in an accident on the set of "Rust" after Alec Baldwin accidentally shot her with a gun, just two days ago shared the video and photos from the movie set to her profile on Instagram.
Halyna, 42, posted a video in which she rides a horse in the company of several colleagues and smiles at the camera.
“One of the benefits of filming a western is riding a horse on days off,” Halyna wrote alongside the video and posted a photo of the entire film crew, which also features Alec in the foreground and who she first marked in the description.
In the comments, her many followers said goodbye to her with touching messages, as well as numerous stars, including The Rock, James Cullen Bressack, Joseph Reitman, Katya Zharkova, and others.
"I'm so sorry. Rest in peace, I'm sending love and strength to your family," "I'll miss you, dear friend. I'm crushed," "My heart is broken," "I'll miss you terribly," "I can't believe it," "No, this is not possible," "What talent and strength," "My heart has been broken to pieces," are just some of the touching comments.
Halyna sadly succumbed to a severe stomach injury after being accidentally shot by a 63-year-old actor Alec Baldwin on a set of "Rust" with a bullet from a gun that served as a prop.
Halyna was known as a successful and promising cinematographer, having worked on a number of independent productions, including the films “Archenemy”, “Blindfire” and “The Mad Hatter”.

Born in 1979, Halyna grew up at a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle. She attended Kyiv National University and graduated in international journalism, after which she worked as an investigative journalist for British documentary production in Eastern Europe.
Inspired by the work of cinematographers Christopher Doyle and Sergey Urusevskiy, she decided to focus on filmmaking and moved to Los Angeles, initially working as a production assistant and as an electrician, and she also made several short films.
On the recommendation of cameraman Robert Primes, an Emmy winner, in 2013 she enrolled at the Conservatory of the American Film Institute, where she graduated two years later.
In 2018, she was one of eight cameramen selected for the inaugural 21st Fox DP Lab, and a year later she was selected as one of the rising stars of American Cinematographer magazine.
The mysterious thriller “Archenemy” she shot, which was released in 2020 with Joe Manganiello in the lead role, was in an official competition at the Sitges International Film Festival by receiving a nomination for Best Picture.
Other feature films she worked on included Michael Nell’s police drama “Blindfire,” the horror film "The Mad Hatter,” and the horror film “Darly.” Her short screenings include the films “I Am Normal” and “Sunday’s Child”.
