Mini-Documentary: Grip it Good

9:47 AM 0 Comments

Mark Vargo, ASC has been kicking out mini documentaries lately. His latest is one dedicated to film grips – giving an inside look at some of the tools of the trade. His other documentary, “Let There Be Light“, is a great introduction to film lighting, metering and temperature, so definitely check that out too.
For those who don’t know, Mark is a veteran of the VFX industry – mostly in the optical department – on films like Empire Strikes Back and as the Visual Effects DP of Ghost Busters II. More recently he has Directed TV episodes, commercials and his first feature film.
As Mark says in a closing remark, if he weren’t behind the camera, he’d want to being the grip department.
