Welcome to the New Year. This will be the year of our 20th Anniversary.
Beloved videographer Robert Saulson Passes
As we at Iconoclast Productions enter 2013, it is with a heavy heart at the loss of one of the members of the Saulson family, Robert Allen Saulson: the father of one of our founding members (Sumiko S. California) and the ex-husband of another (Carolyn Saulson). Robert was also the father of Scott Saulson. Here is a photo of the four in 1993, the year Iconoclast Productions was founded:
Robert was best known to many community members as a camera man and videographer involved with documenting community events in the Fillmore/Western Addition and BayView over the past 20 years. Tenderloin residents knew him as “Pops” and often saw him with his kids and grandkids near his home a few buildings over from Glide Church on Ellis Street.
His full obituary is in the San Francisco Bayview Paper:
