The Grip Book has been widely used by beginners and experienced key grips alike as both a learning tool as well as a handy reference for a number of years. It clearly details and illustrates all the equipment used by motion picture film technicians on stage as well as on location. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to include the latest models of all types of equipment and the authors have added important safety tips throughout the manual. This new book is also significantly expanded to include a special supplement detailing cranes, jibs, and arms which had previously been published in a separate limited edition. The result is a comprehensive, unequaled reference that no technician or production student will want to be without. Michael G. Uva is a well-respected Key Grip is Hollywood, with over 20 years' experience in film, TV movies, and commercials to his credit. He and his wife Sabrina are also owners of Uva's Grip Truck Service. They now wish to share their knowledge, particularly in order to help those who want to find their first job in the film industry and learn the business.
