About Grip Equipment Vans

Grip vans are primarily used to build and maintain all the equipment that supports cameras.

This equipment, which includes tripods, dollies, tracks, jibs, cranes, and static rigs, is constructed of delicate yet heavy duty parts requiring a high level of experience to operate and move.

Every scene in a feature film is shot using one or more cameras, each mounted on highly complex, extremely expensive, heavy duty equipment.

Grip vans contain everything needed to assemble this equipment according to meticulous specifications and push, pull, mount or hang it from a variety of settings.

The equipment can be as basic as a tripod standing on a studio floor, to hazardous operations such as mounting a camera on a 100 ft crane, or hanging it from a helicopter swooping above a mountain range.

Grip vans are essential for any small to large television or film production
