Specialty Electric Riggers

When a project calls for rigging, both the Electric Team and the Grip Team are often duplicated by people who know how to put lighting and grip up into rafters or truss. They may be used to set up lighting the night before a shoot because of weather or locations.  Overnight rigging happens in big movie sets so that the set is ready for early morning shots.
