GUY MICHELETTI has always believed in a brotherhood…through hard work,
dedication and loyalty, he has created Dragon Grips. Guy inspires his team with his
passion and his zealousness for the ART of GRIPPING…the art of film making.
We are a team of FUN, ENTHUSIASTIC, ENERGETIC bunch of guys who are
committed to striving to be the best – as individuals and as a team. We get excited
in trying situations…be it RIGGING in the desert, building CRANES on the
waterfall, or elevating TRACKS for the jungle or the forest – we are always
DEDICATED! The harder the shoot, the bigger the thrill…
Having worked on international features using both the English and US systems,
Guy is known for going out of his way in order to CREATE the IMPOSSIBLE - or

Often enough we have been asked the possibility of an unconventional rig and have

INVENTIVE trick up his sleeve!
Because the team is strong and tight, knowing each other's strong points, we can
assist each other in order to create harmony and efficiency in a time consuming
effort. Our constant RE-INVENTION of gear and IDEAS have proven time and
again that in order to become the BEST, we have to always strive to make any rig,
any shot as RAPID and PROFICIENT, always keeping SAFETY as a priority...
which in turn helps the Director, the DOP and the Production.
It is one thing to have all the TOYS…it’s another to know how to use it and be
CREATIVE with it…that’s the GENIUS part!
We are INSPIRED by whom we work with and hope that a hint of that rubs off on
others who work with us.
DRAGON GRIPS…..We change things, push ourselves, our team and the art of
