SHORT BIO

Pip ‘the Grip’ Shapiera has worked in the film and television industry for over thirty years as a key grip, on over fifty to sixty feature films, hundreds of music videos, thousands of commercials, numerous documentaries, and lots of training videos. Pip’s background is in 35mm film, and even though he may be a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to new digital technologies, he can still appreciate that any final product will be an image that is to be watched, and therefore must catch our attention so that we will watch it.
