Six years as a Grip Equipment Technician for Arri Media (2000-06) allowed me to work with some of the best grip equipment in the industry. This experience provided with the foundations of becoming proficient in rigging, operation, and maintenance of all grip equipment. I developed my constructive skills to design, and build grip rigs in the spare of the moment.
As a B camera Grip I worked across Film, Television and Commercials; advancing my career for several years. I continued to evolve into a fully competent and knowledgable Key Grip.
I am now a fully qualified NVQ L3 Key Grip. This role allows me to confidently run and organise my own projects. I am very aware of Health and safety at work, and it forms an integral part of my work ethos. Knight Grips always aims for the highest possible working standards. I am Key Grip that takes pride in his work, and always strives to get the best shot!
