Description

The Grip Application was created for people in the film industry, more specifically people working in the Grip and Electric (G&E) department(s). The application is an instructional and education tool that can be used as a reference on set as well as manual to study off set. People that are just beginning a career in G&E have very few resources that teach them what will be required of them on set – specifically, the types of equipment they will use and how it works, and when and where to use it on set. Typically, those new to G&E learn by example from the more experienced members in their department – which can often be problematic if they are short staffed, working on a set up that needs to be done quickly (which happens nonstop) or building a rig that requires maximum safety precautions. To excel the knowledge of the beginner and both aid the teachings and update the knowledge of the more advanced, the Grip App is one-quarter dictionary, ¼ equipment statistics and specifications, 25% images and descriptions of equipment, and the remainder – all of this information in practical applications on set!

The Grip App features a wide assortment of equipment pictures, individually and on set, that come directly from the manufacturers. It also includes, equipment specifications, how to's, and step-by-step instructions. Users can read up on and study within 4 categories: 1. Dollies, 2. Cranes (Techno Cranes and Remote Heads), 3. Hardware (Hardware/Tools, Flags, Stands, Expendibles), 4. Rigs (Knots, Condors, Truss, Car Rigs).

Customer Reviews

It's ok

There's little consistency in how information is presented. The whole app feel slap-dash which isn't necessarily a problem, but it's inexcusable for an $8 app that basically pulls information straight off websites. The search function is useless, typing in 'C-47' returns nothing, for example, and typing in 'jib' does not consolidate the many varieties of jibs into one list, but instead returns a jib yoke.

Weak sauce.

It's the only app like it and better than nothing, but there is definitely room for some competition.

Good reference

Needs ability to add new knots and gear or needs update. Cost is to high but convent
