Turbocharge your productions with a better understanding of Grip Techniques.

Any production from Hollywood scale to Television, Documentaries and even Corporate work, can benefit from having someone knowledgable with the Art of Grip on the set. Yet Grips and the value they bring is often times over looked by even the most experienced producers.
