This course is calibrated to aid film professionals in the understanding of various lighting and grip packages, required workflow, crewing requirements to handle and operate equipment, load-outs, innovatory, commonly used equipment, and basic safety tips. Targeted participants for this course may include: Production managers, Production coordinators, Assistant production coordinators, Production assistants, Producers, all accounting personnel, or anyone interested in learning more about film equipment and gear.     About the Instructor Lesley Oswald has been in the film industry in Manitoba for over 40 years.
