Here’s the story.
So who said, “I said Jimmy”? It’s a long story really, but the name stuck and as I branched out to create a new business as a Gaffer owner/operator with my own grip truck, it seemed fitting to have a name that not only fit my personality but is easy to remember and fun to say. So here’s my story and how I became, “I said Jimmy, Grip and Electric”.
Hi! I’m Jim Fischer. Having worked in Dallas, Texas in the Grip and Electric industry since 1991 with some of the most respected key Grips and Gaffers, I feel honored to have learned from the best. As I broadened my experience I did the typical climb up the ladder thing and settled into a gaffer position in 2006. Now, with literally hundreds of shoots in my career bank, I’ve grown confident enough in my lighting expertise to start my own business.
…and this is what happened next.
I bought and built up a grip truck and customized it’s interior to efficiently house my really cool grip gear and lighting equipment. Then I started slapping my awesome “I said Jimmy” logo on everything and had this cool website built. It’s the marketing end of my business, and it’s designed to share with you who I am, what I do, and how I do it.
Bottom line, I’m a really fun guy to work with, and I’ll use all my tips and tricks and full blown lighting expertise to help make your finished project look great. Plus, we’ll have a blast doing it.
