About the theGripApp App

Developer's 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).

FILMCAST"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."

Directors Notes"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
