SciFi Question of the Day (Behind the scenes version): How many grips does it take to change a lightbulb?
Charlie Cecil Riley Depends on which union they belong to.
Joseph Kerezman At least you didn’t ask about the Teamsters. BTW, How do you know when a Teamsters dies? The Doughnut falls out of his hand. 😀
Katherine Noel Actually… It takes Gaffers to change a lightbulb, the grips just stand around holding onto their.. um… How many crew does it take to change a lightbulb? Well… The Director to notice the light is wrong!, the head electrician to say you can get close to the rigging, the best boy to throw at the rigging to make sure it is not grounding, a gaffer to climb up and change it, the grip to plug it back in to see if it works, the PA to look at it and run to the cinematographer to check the light color… Sigh.

Kimberly Unger – Seven 🙂 One to hold the bulb and 6 to get experience so they can apply for union membership 🙂
