My Steadicam Rickshaw is back from it's latest movie and is for rent if anyone needs it.

The latest rental was for the new Johnny Depp movie called "Public Enemies."
They kept it for a little over two months thru to the end of production. It even got a small mention in a local newspaper! Wisconsin State Journal

Previous to that production, it was again on full time rental for the TV series "Women's Murder Club."
It can be used as a highly manuverable dolly or a fast running rickshaw.. a real back saver and energy saver..

For more information on rates, testimonials, and credits please visit my website at..

Thanks!

Hi Joseph,

I rented it directly to the production of Public Enemies. I never talked to Robert personally.
I'm pretty sure the production cooridantor mentioned Robert's name.

Interesting how they found me. The production coordinator said he just did an internet search for "Steadicam Rickshaw" (I think my rickshaw website is number 1 on yahoo but number 4 on Google)

They originally wanted to rent it for only 2 weeks. Then called again and asked for another 2 weeks.
Finally they asked to keep it for the remainder of the show.

I would like to get a hold of Robert to ask him about his experience with it.

Do you think he would mind if I emailed him and asked him some questions about it?
I don't have his email address though.
