Tired of fetching coffee? Gripping is a great way to start working on sets while observing the production process.
Come spend the evening at Grip Basics and you'll learn how to safely move and set up common grip gear typically found on most sets. Learn the difference between a Mafer and a Platypus; how to "soldier" c-stands; turn your "apples" from "LA" to "Chicago" to "New York" and more!
