First off, this isn't a "new" film. The Orville Nix film, the film showing the complete opposite angle of Abraham Zapruder - who we can actually see
filming in the Nix film, has been around for a while now and in my own personal opinion It doesn't show us a shooter at all. Sure it gives us a rare
glimpse at the grassy knoll as the assassination was taking place which is incredibly important, and sure we can see what appears to be a figure
taking aim, and sure I actually 100% believe a shooter came from around this location... but I don't for a second believe this is it:

There's a couple of reasons why I don't believe this to be a shooter, instead, nothing but
at work. One of those reasons is this "shooter" is in plain view here. Even in plain
view to the entire motorcade. Yet not a single person, at the time of the assassination might I add, came forward and described something exactly like
this in this exact same spot. People suspected the knoll as they had either seen a flash of light or smoke (I cite Witness
as one of the witnesses to that), or because they heard a shot coming from
here (I cite around 59 different witnesses for that.
So, not particularly because they actually saw someone taking aim and firing at Kennedy.
Also try watching the Nix film a little bit closer once again, try looking to the very far right hand side of where this "shooter" supposedly is
situated. You may notice a man standing on the wall just to the right of him.. that's Abraham Zapruder - the man famous for the Zapruder film. He's
stood there with a colleague of his. Now, if someone really was in clear view as this "shooter seems to be, there's simply no way Adrian would not
have seen him. Same with his colleague and the same once again applies to those witnesses around the Knoll also. Even those around Nix in fact.
We also have to ask 1 very important question... And that's why doesn't this figure move? We can see him before the assassination, we can see him
during it and finally we can see him after it and yet there is no movement at all. Surely, if someone had just shot the president, in clear view such
as this, someone would've noticed him moving assuming he did so. Also the presidential limousine is moving at all times, why doesn't he adjust himself
to get the best shot? Is he really just picking one spot and waiting for the president to come into it before he fires? It's seemingly the only
conclusion and It's not a plausible one at all.
These few reasons are hy I don't believe a shooter is here. Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer that a shooter did come from this location (The
grassy knoll). But one that's seen in the Nix film? No way. It's practically an impossibility especially since he's by far too "in view" like that.
Instead, I feel like a shooter came from this location, and they're incredibly tough to make out as as we're looking right at it:
Image taken by Mary Moorman - not the Nix film
Also notice how we can't see any shooter from the Nix film location in this image? It's because, IMO, he's not there. As I said before, I feel the
only reason we can see him is due to Pareidolia (see above link) and nothing more. It's also worth pointing out that this image has been hailed with
being closer to the assassination than any pic before or after it. It's said It was taken at almost the exact same time thus giving us the best
possible image when we search for a shooter from the Knoll.
Anyway, for anyone interested here's a little bit of information about Orville Nix and his film:
Wikipedia: Orville Nix
I really think you should look up witness Gordon Arnold also. He tell's of a Grassy knoll shooter from the exact positioned I highlighted in the above
image of the Moorman photo and he's got a very fascinating over all story to tell, one which I personally believe.
