  • Definition: The key grip is the head of the set operations department. The key grip works with the director of photography to help set up the set and to achieve the correct lighting and blocking.
  • In collaboration with the Director of Photography, the Key Grip works with his crew of Grips in coordinating with the Electric Department to control set lighting as well as with the Camera Department in camera setup. The Camera Operator controls pan and tilt, but actual camera movement forward and back, up and down, and side to side through physical space is controlled by the Dolly Grip with a dolly or crane. The entire Grip Department works in coordination with the Electric and Camera departments to create each setup. While the Dolly Grip works closely with the Camera Operator, the other Grips work with the Electricians to light and prepare the set according the to instructions of the Director of Photography. Electricians are in charge of setting and powering the lighting units themselves, and Grips have the equipment to control the light. Production Grips set C-stands, flags, and provide safe rigging for set dressing, lighting, and camera equipment. In the meantime, Rigging Grips prepare sets for shooting ahead of the main unit.
