The Grip Department in a film or theater studio is basically a jack-of-all trades team responsible for providing the labor-intensive legwork and handiwork support for making the props, camera stands, lighting rigs, stage effects as well as securing 3rd party services like carpenters and other hands in any construction work for stage and film. All these are managed and supervised by the Key Grip or Key Boss. A résumé here can benefit from a portfolio of works you are involved with.
