History and other interesting information regarding the precision, hand-built Colortran Mini-Crab Dolly. The Mini-Crab Dolly was invented by television/film actor, William Sargent. Joining Mr. Sargent was actor/director, Robert Kelljan and together they teamed up as SarKell.

We're waiting to hear back from Kyle Jones who was involved with the following production shown here. What we do know for sure is that the Mini-Crab pictured in the following photos is #157, owned by my friend Steven Mahoney, from the Seattle area.
Kyle, who incidentally used #157 through Steven, recently took ownership of his own Mini-Crab #24. We'll find out the back-story to these pictures and what he has to say about his Mini-Crab.
We're looking at a very interesting track system with the Mini-Crab #157 riding on a 'sub-dolly' skateboard-wheeled system. It's good to see that modern camera technology such as the RED system nicely integrated with William Sargent's 50+ year old Mini-Crab design.
You may remember, #157 was once owned by twice-Academy Award winner and producer, David L. Wolper.
