Linda Ambury (Line Producer)

Linda Ambury has been working in film and television since 1987 when  she started with director Anne Wheeler in development.  Her first  production was “Bye Bye Blues” where she worked for Ms. Wheeler and  Arvi Liimatainen.  From there she managed Kicking Horse Productions and  began working as a Production accountant.  Her first foray into Production  Managing was in 1993 on “Strange and Rich”, which was a Prairie Initiative  Project involving co-pros from the three prairie provinces.    

In 1994 Linda moved to Calgary to continue her long and successful  career as a Production Manager.  Linda has worked on several key  productions in the development of the AB film industry. These include the Disney TV series "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids"; the then-largest budget Canadian feature film, $20 million WWI epic "Passchendaele"; the AMC series "Hell On Wheels" and her personal favourite, HBO's "Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee" which captured the record that year for the greatest number of Emmy nominations - 17, and came away with 6 wins. Opportunities for Line Producing began with ABC's mini-series "Little House on The Prairie". "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" provided an additional challenge, where Linda oversaw the conversion of the air hangers at Currie Barracks to film support/stages.  Linda has sat on DGC local boards and committees, and has been invited to sit on studio committees, including IFAC (for the Calgary studio currently under construction).   Recently Linda had the pleasure of instructing a production management class for the Banff Centre.  One of Linda’s passions is mentoring and providing internship programs on productions.
