A film crew position which most people are unfamiliar with, yet it plays a key role in the making of a successful film is a ‘Key Grip’. Your seasoned instructor Tim O’Neill who has been a gaffer and grip on multiple films, will go over the many duties of the grip on set. Typically on a short film, there should be at least one key grip or gaffer or both who can direct and mentor others on what has to be done.

Who is a Key Grip?
In the film industry, the key grip refers to a person who works with the gaffer and the cinematographer in order to supervise all the grip crews, including lighting and rigging, to report the progress of the on-set gearing up to the director of photography, commonly known as the DOP. In simpler words, a key grip is a person who is in-charge of a number of different on-set activities, such as lighting and camera movement!
