The Roanoke Chapter of the Virginia Production Alliance is having a class called Lighting & Grip 101, an introduction to lighting for film and video.  This is a hands on course.  You will be given a chance to work with 3 ton lighting equipment, learn some lighting techniques, and how to use grip resources to shape and mold the light.

Heavy lifting and crawling in and out of the grip truck will be required so dress for the part and bring work gloves.  You will be required to sign a waiver to work with the equipment or you can choose to just observe if you prefer.

Gaining some knowledge and experience with this equipment can start you on your way to working at day rate on a film set.

Besides the hands on experience you will receive, the next best thing is this class is free!


The Virginia Production Alliance was formed in 1988 to support the state's film and video industry.  Everyone who has an interest in creating moving pictures is encouraged to join the VPA.
