Grips are lighting and rigging technicians in the film and video industries. They make up their own department on a film set and are led by a Key Grip. Grips have two main functions. The first is to work closely with the camera department, especially if the camera is mounted to a dolly, crane or other unusual position. Some grips may specialize in operating camera dollies or camera cranes. The second is to work closely with the electrical department to put in the lighting set-ups necessary for a shot.
We do not provide job placement. We will show you how to apply for jobs. Of course with any job, you would have to be interviewed by the key person in charge who hires the production crew. We will give you a lead sheet after your class is complete.
Please call to sign-up:[masked] and please let Windy know that you heard about this from Meetup in order to enjoy your Discount.
