Why Shane instead of a Key Grip?
Shane would never be allowed to touch or manipulate any grip equipment on a real movie set...
Only when the camera is pointed at him will he pretend to demonstrate that these are valuable tools of the set.
This video and others like it misrepresent what's really happening on film sets.
A true DP would have a rep from the Grip crew to properly demonstrate how amazing C - stands really are...

thanks, douche!

Anonymous #1,

1. Shane WAS a grip as he mentioned in the video.

2. This is a video about C-stands, not set protocol.

3. It's Shane's video.
