Considerations when renting or leasing a grip/lighting
Whether you are on your first film project, or you’ve been at it a long time, it can still be difficult to know just what type of lighting you will need. If you are directing, it is a good idea to speak with your director of photography, along with the grips, to get an idea of what type of lighting you are going to need for each of your scenes. They will be able to give you a better idea of the type of lights you need, as well as how many you will need. If you have a specific manufacturer or product question, a KWIPPED supplier will happily assist you.

Features of grip/lightings

film lighting and grip rentalWhile there may be some differences, most lights work the same. They have a bulb that offers illumination. The lights could be on posts, mounted to a part of the scenery, or they could be lights that are actually within the shot, such as a lamp. The lighting needs to add to the scene without making it stand out too much.

How grip/lightings work

Light can play a huge role in the look and the tone of your film. You don’t want most comedies to be too dark, and you don’t want a horror movie flooded with light. It takes the special touch of the grip along with the insight of the director to get things just right. Many different types of lighting are available for film, and you will be able to rent or lease them all. Grips will check the placement of the light and make sure that it provides the look that the director is trying to achieve

About grip/lightings

When it comes to the grip and lighting equipment for your next project, you simply can’t skimp. The lighting is one of the most essential parts of the overall look of the film, so you have to pay close attention to what you are using and where you place it. It is always better to have too much lighting, so you can take some away, than to have not enough and shoot a scene that turns out far too dark and muddled. Your grip needs to have the right amount of light for the work.
