Do you know the difference between a `gaffer` and a `key grip` when it comes to making a film?

OH! i totally do and i'm so proud of myself... lol. i just learned this in my film appreciation class i took this summer. a gaffer is an electrician and a grip is a person who moves stuff around on the set, like the cameras and lights and stuff. the key grip is the person who all the other grips work under. sometimes the grips will help the gaffres set up lights and whatnot.

I just learned about this in the spring. There was an exhibition in town called "behind the scenes" where there were hands on exercises that taught you all about the history and what goes into making a film.
