So What the Hell Does a Grip Do Anyway?

This video from Mark Vargo pretty much sums up the question, “So what the hell does a Grip do anyway?”  On his Vimeo page, he says, “Part tutorial, part love letter – this video represents my take on the importance of the grip department. No grips, no Oscar nomination. Film schools don’t spend enough time on the essentials of gripping and for the life of me I don’t know why! Grips provide literally 1/2 of the lighting on stage and sometimes 100% of the lighting outdoors! You cannot learn how to shoot without some knowledge of “cutting” light. Hopefully this video will help you approach your lighting plan differently in the future.” Excellent job, Mark! Great video!  MARK VARGO IMDb
