HOW OUR CREWS WORK
OUR GRIP EQUIPMENT
Our 3ft and 4ft Movmax sliders on an itv drama.
Sliders are an integral part of equipment on most sets. It allows the operator to add small to medium adjustments depending upon the size of the slider. We have a variety of sliders in different sizes and makes including Panther, Movmax and Darna.
Low loader rigs...

Low loader rigs allow us to safely get moving shots into vehicles. The above example is one of our rigs onto a low loader for the ITV drama ‘The tower’. The low loader is a long platform often attached by a trailer to the pack of another towing vehicle or lorry. The action vehicle is then put on the back so that the actors can safely act without having to drive themselves. The low loader keeps the vehicle low so that it doesn’t look like the action vehicle is raised above other moving vehicles.
Track and dolly...

The most notable piece of equipment operated by the grip department is the ‘Dolly’. What is a camera Dolly? A camera dolly is a wheeled platform that a camera and operator can be mounted on. The dolly is then pushed or moved horizontally and can often jib vertically up and down. The dolly usually has the operator riding but also sometimes has a focus puller and operator riding.

We use lots of different types of equipment on set. Here we can see Tommy McMahon (operator) on a German central column Movietech Magnum dolly. These dollies are great for getting into tight spaces and to use as jib bases. This image is on the set of ‘Rebel cheer squad’ a BBC/ Netflix series that we provided grip crew and equipment for.
