I used to imagine writing a book with a very similar message, kind of a cross between the Neverending Story and a medical Matrix sort of thing.

I thought Best Boy was the assistant to the assistant to the assistant to the assistant to the assistant director, or something retarded like that. Seriously.

In a film crew there are two kinds of best boy: best boy electric and best boy grip. They are assistants to their department heads, the gaffer and the key grip, respectively. In short, the best boy acts as the foreman for his/her department.

According to that wiki page, we're both part right, but I'm wondering if it's in error.

I based what I said on owning a copy of the book listed as the first reference on that page (Taub, Eric (1994). Gaffers, Grips, and Best Boys). I was curious by those odd names in the credits.

My memory was that best boys are primarily associated with the Gaffers, who are the electricians (they used to use long wooden poles called gaffs to move the wires on the older lights). The guys who set up reflectors and held things during the shoots are called Grips. I was thinking that grip was a name for someone on the crew and Key Grip was the name of the foreman.

I'd read, somewhere, that if the electrician (or whomever) needed help, he'd call on the lighting director (or whomever) to send over his "best boy", thus the assistant got his name.

Wait, what? You mean they pulled this picture, but left a picture of nude men up? Wow.

That is an awesome picture, and it deserves to be seen. :shifty:
