Robert Kelljan "The Kell in SarKell" demonstrating the unpacking of the Mini-Crab Dolly
Here is William Sargent's partner, the late Robert Kelljan.
Mr. Kelljan is demonstrating how easy it is to unpack the ColorTran Mini-Crab Dolly from it's carrying case during a Demo shoot. If you click on this image to enlarge, you'll see the seat, steering and shift control assembly and the camera lift control lever is nicely stowed away.
This dolly may quite possibly be one of the very first to roll off the assembly line as there is no evidence of a manufacturers tag.
Mr. Kelljan was a working actor and a successful television director, directing iconic TV episodes of 'Charlie's Angels', 'Starsky and Hutch' and 'Hill Street Blues', to name a few. William Sargent has often told me that Robert Kelljan was the consummate partner and a true friend.
