Every shoot, Naoki will be there to help the team realise the client’s vision. This starts in the kit room; preparing and maintaining equipment, making sure everything is ready to go. As grip, he is able to facilitate the smooth running of studio or location shoots. Anticipating lighting and grip requirements with an informed eye, whilst making sure our sets are safe working environments. Always ready to marshal his crew to fly another diffusion frame and get the look we need in every environment. Legend has it he once erected a Strato crank stand with only his little finger, in his sleep.
