Newly-released footage from the set of Rust shows Alec Baldwin rehearsing with a prop gun moments before cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot last October.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office released the clip along with several other videos and documents on Monday, as authorities continue to look into the on-set shooting.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the gun footage was filmed inside the Bonanza Creek Ranch church, where the incident occurred.
In the video you can see Baldwin in character, sitting on a chair and then pulling out a gun and pointing it forward.
Baldwin's finger appears to be near the trigger, although he's said in the past that he "didn't pull the trigger."

Baldwin was reportedly rehearsing that scene when his gun went off, hitting Hutchins and director Joel Souza. Souza survived with a shoulder injury but Hutchins died.
The sheriff's office also released dashcam footage from deputies and detectives arriving at the set following the shooting, along with 204 pages of case documents and several interviews, including their first sit-down with Baldwin.
While Baldwin was being questioned, you can see him recount the moments before the gun was fired.
"I take the gun out slowly. I turn, I cock the pistol. She [Hutchins] hits the ground. She goes down. He [Souza] goes down screaming," said Baldwin, who also stated that the gun should have been empty.
No one has been charged to date, although several lawsuits have been filed. Many of them have targeted the film's assistant director and armorer, along with Baldwin, who was also a producer.
The BBC reports that producers of the low-budget Western film were fined and "strongly criticized" by authorities for their alleged negligence in following safety protocols. They were issued a maximum fine of US$136,793.
Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza says his investigators are awaiting the results of ballistics and forensic analysis from the FBI, the Associated Press reports. They're also looking at fingerprint and DNA evidence.
Baldwin told ABC in December that "someone is responsible for what happened, [...] but I know it's not me."
