We don’t deal much with grip equipment in our visual journalism sequence, but some of my kids wander off into commercial/corporate/advertising work where they’ll suddenly have to know what a C-stand is or how to load V-flats for transport. Cinescopophilia has a collection of three videos on what goes into a grip truck.

Every photographer who ever leaves their office should watch the third video – the thought processes in it are extremely useful.
