I THEN STARTED ON GREYSTOKE AS A CONSTRUCTION STAGEHAND AND WENT ON TO DO STAND BY IN THE CAMEROON’S MAIN UNIT ASSISTING THE GRIP WHENEVER I COULD.

WHEN WE RETURNED THE CAMERAMAN AND THE MAIN UNIT GRIP ASKED ME IF I WOULD LIKE TO GO ONTO THE SECOND UNIT GRIPPING.

I TOOK THE JOB STRAIGHT AWAY AND HAVE BEEN GRIPPING EVER SINCE,

THE STAGEHAND BACKING PROVING TO BE INVALUABLE AFTER WHICH I WENT ON TO DO FILMS SUCH AS BELOW AS A GRIP

 

 

 

 

SATURN III (I was on this 3 months as a stage hand and then was asked to grip the second camera main unit. I was the youngest grip in the country at the time after the film finished
