Annie Frear


Annie Frear - sometimes credited as Ann Frear - works mainly as a grip, setting up and operating the equipment used to move the camera on the film set. Frear's early films included Alison Maclean's Talkback. She moved into features for two ambitious period pieces: Desperate Remedies and The Piano. Frear would later be promoted to grip co-ordinator on one of the longest shoots in film history, The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
