Sailors, Cowboys, Loggers, Carpenters, Circus and Stage Riggers are the forefathers of the movie grip department. Our beloved grip brothers combine all of the talents of these legendary trades. Fancy knots that hold fast, safe platforms for lights and camera personnel, and dolly track laid on inhospitable ground - just part of the job. Whenever anything goes awry on set, the grip department is who everyone looks to first. These are our “first responders” and NO movie can be made without them.

This video is an homage and inside look at an unsung department that makes all of our shots possible. For all fans of the filmmaking process!
