Grip & Electric 101


Beginning filmmakers are often assigned to departments other than they had anticipated once on a film shoot.  In having to wear many hats, these are things that everyone, regardless to which department you may be assigned, that you must know the order to be successful.  Without this “must know” knowledge you could be embarrassed, if not fired. This course is designed for anyone who wants to work on a set.
