Past Workshop Descriptions

Grip Fundamentals

NOTE: It is recommended that participants wear a mask for all in-person workshops.

Learn what it takes to be an effective and professional grip. Gain an understanding of what a grip does and their important role in a professional film crew. Get to know the types of grip (key, best boy, dolly), and the on-set etiquette of working with the camera and electrical departments. Topics include basic rigging, cutting light and setting flags, tenting out, managing on-set safety and more. Explore the other major aspect of the grip’s job—creative problem solving. Find out what kind of on-set surprises can arise and learn effective strategies to deal with them.

Camera Theory, Cinematography Fundamentals, Lighting Fundamentals and Creative Lighting are strongly recommended as prerequisite workshops.
