Grip Truck Secrets: How All That Stuff Can Save Your Production!

Everyone’s favorite Gaffer, Craig ‘Burnie’ Burns, explains the mysteries of grip and lighting tools and how they can not only save you time and money but create the look you want. Learn why the difference between a 5 ton grip truck and a 3 ton is a whole lot more than 2 tons!

Hidden in the bowels of a professional grip truck are exotic problem-solvers with strange names: from hi-rollers to pancakes, cardellini clamps to cello cukes and floppy cutters to speed rings. At the March 16th meeting of MCAI you’ll get answers to questions you never thought of. Doesn’t everyone need a speed rail spreader? And how do you say ‘Fresnel,’ anyway?

As a Master Grip and Gaffer for over 25 years, Burnie will reveal all! OK, maybe not all but enough so you’ll feel confident when ordering that 5 ton package. The effervescent Burnie is full of knowledge and great warstories. This will be a fun and informative evening.

Burnie’s Grip and Lighting is the largest provider of its kind south of Los Angeles. BG&L serves the entire southern California region from Santa Barbra, Los Angeles to San Diego as far east as Palm Springs and Las Vegas with a number of trucks and vans. They also do with Lighting Sales and Studio Installations.

As Always, bring a friend and plenty of business cards.
