Love Letter to The Grips Department:

Mark Vargo, ASC has put together an homage to the grips department. Mark’s hat tip is part tutorial, part love letter…

Grip It Good

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.
