Michael Uva sits down with us on Cinematic Immunity to discuss transferring his skills from the U.S. Marines to the world of being a grip in the entertainment industry in 70's.  Michael Uva is one of the select entertainment technicians who have written "The Book" on his craft. Uva's Grip Book has been the one consistent reference manual for all things Grip for nearly 25 years and it's still going strong with the 2014 publishing of the 5th edition.  This episode was one of the earlier Cinematic Immunity episodes and captures a great perspective on how to do a hard job in hard conditions but still stay professional all day long.  We also break down some grip basics and why regular practice is so important, and how sharing the knowledge brings it back around in the long run.
