Grip Courses

A Grip sets up equipment to support cameras during film and television productions. You’ll make sure camera operators can capture footage as required by using equipment such as dollies, cranes or tripods. You might design a system so the camera can move, be located in a tricky position or remain stable in an outdoor location. Grips work closely with directors and camera crews when setting up production scenes.

Being a Grip requires excellent technical skills and strong attention to detail. You’ll need to be able to work as part of a production crew and be able to follow instructions. Grips need an understanding of film and television systems and must be able to follow a production schedule.
