My comments as a crew member for location set build & filming of "Linda".
19 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being lucky enough to be a local coordinator, aide and extra driver living in Carmel, CA during the location set building and filming of "Linda" was a great experience. It allowed me extra insight into the story itself as well as how the cast and crew perceived it and played to it. The main locations included a deserted beach down the coast south of Carmel-by-the-Sea and in Watsonville... so the beautiful scenery and interesting buildings of coastal central California adds a lot of eye appeal to this interesting and well done made for TV film. The well rounded cast and crew that was selected for "Linda", and the interaction between them was very productive and enjoyable for all, both in front of and behind the camera. That unity carries well into the final product's quality and is evident in it. My rating is probably biased for sure, but getting a chance to see this film will be time well spent for you. I'll never forget the beach football games with cast and crew to pass the time between takes and set changes either. Nor meeting and working with a real down to earth gentleman like John Saxon and the very sexy Stella Stevens especially. To the cast and crew if you see this, always remember the artichokes!
