The Team

Serious Grippage & Light – Albuquerque, New Mexico

At Serious Grippage & Light we have made it a priority to build an employee roster out of qualified personnel.  Our goal is to find dedicated film technicians who have integrity, are eager to learn, and epitomize a strong work ethic. Through close relationships with IATSE Local 480, the New Mexico universities / colleges, and our internship program we seek to assemble a team of technicians that not only work at our rental house, but work on set as electricians, grips, set PAs, etc.  Our team is comprised of responsible and motivated filmmakers that know how to maintain and service our equipment, as well as work the gear properly in the field.  By staffing qualified film technicians we are able to provide a level of efficiency, customer service, and working knowledge that is second to none in New Mexico.
