Hire a Grip

 

Grips are production members whose talents and expertise contribute to making a show or movie a success. They work with the materials and equipment that support cameras and lighting.  Grips work for production houses and crews in the television and film industry. What’s unique about being a grip is that the work schedule may vary for each project. Whether the scene takes place in the wee hours of the morning or late into the night, grips work a varied schedule. Just as in any line of business or trade, working as a grip entails perseverance, patience, and passion. 

 

A concise, accurate, and straightforward job description will help hiring managers to steer the recruitment process in the right direction. Listing the essential responsibilities, requirements, and qualifications will help interested applicants decide if they are right for the position. If possible, include details about the hiring company as well. 

 

Responsibilities of a Grip

 

Grips perform various responsibilities in the production of television shows, films, and commercials. In general, grips help in the assembly, disassembly, and packing of background sets and maintain all equipment that supports cameras. Examples of such equipment are dollies, tripods, cranes, and tracks. The goal of grips is to ensure that cameras move as seamlessly as possible without jarring.  Grips work with the camera and electrical department and help them with their needs. They assemble heavy equipment, guide cranes, operate dollies, and ensure that lighting is appropriate per scene. 

 

Lastly, grips ensure that all materials and equipment are clean and functional. They also pack and unpack them securely and work according to safety standards at all times. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Grip

 

To qualify as a grip, a high school diploma or GED is required. While a bachelor’s degree in film is advantageous, this is not commonly required to start working as a grip. What’s more important is the amount of work experience that candidates have in the television or film industry. Hands-on experience as a grip on production sets is very helpful.

 

To be successful in the job, a good grasp of cameras, carpentry, and electrical workings are necessary. Candidates must have the physical endurance, strength, and stamina to move heavy cranes and dollies and lift heavy equipment on set. The ability to work in tight spaces or at certain heights is likewise necessary. The ideal candidate has excellent interpersonal and communications skills with keen attention to detail. Flexibility to work irregular hours, evenings, on holidays, and weekends and travel are helpful.
