so I'm going to be a grip on an upcoming film and I asked what grip gear they will have. they said they are puting together an order from fryers... local company but also said "We'll have 1 12x12 set, 1 6x6 set, a bunch of 4x4 frames, grid, 1/2 grid, etc."

I am pretty experienced with the typical grip gear however I do not know what they are talking about when they say 12x12 set or grid or 1/2 grid. it would be awesome if you guys could help me out.

A "set" of rags often consists of a solid, griff, single and double nets, and a silk.

Grid and light grid is a type of diffusion, they give a nicer quality of diffusion than a silk.

Most of this stuff is covered in "The Grip Book" by Michael Uva.

The list is just what it says; there are two 18x24" single nets, and two 18x24" double nets.

A high-roller is a stand that folds out to a wide base with wheels on it, and has a grip head on top. Also called an overhead stand, you'll use two of these to support the 12x12' frame.

A high-roller or overhead stand in canada is called a sky-high. The grip book is alright but it doesn't give you all the equipment names plus you have to factor in that there are various names for equipment.

I found that some of the stuff named in the grip book is called something else in Canada. Like a Big ben in US is called a goal post in Canada. Or the 750-2k adapter is usually called a buttplug. Some 2K lights are called blondes while some 1K's (red backing) are called redheads. You can totally tell whoever made up these nicknames was a guy. :)
