Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 8 Location filming a new look Thursday, Jan. 16 gives TV By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) "They went thataway" is more than a cliche to Hollywood TV producers these days. Television shows are going thataway, and it's a sudden thing which nobody completely understands. The situation is that 20 per cent of all this season's TV shows are being made on location, and that's un- heard of. Only two of the 11 loca- tion based shows are holdovers The Streets of San Francisco and Hawaii Five 0. The others are brand new this year, which means that, without any warning, the networks bought nine shows which are not Hollywood based. This flies in the face of -all previously exhibited television tradition and logic. Making shows on location adds two factors which, heretofore, the networks didn't seem to want to add realism and money. When Daktari was made, the networks wouldn't hear of them going to Africa or even to any of the close in jungles. That jungle set series was shot at Africa, U.S.A., a kind of poor man's African look amusement park only a camera's throw away from Hollywood and Vine. But this season Born Free is being shot in Kenya, in the heart of Africa's high' rent dis- trict. Time and outlooks change. Why? "There's an absolute necessity for a new look on says Charles Larson, executive producer of ABC's new Nakia. "I think the Dairii Queen North Store Only 516-13th St. North Phone 327-4855 Try our... BAR-B-QUE BEEF-ON-A-BUN Complete with French Fries .1.25 audiences recognized Southern California on so many shows and got tired of it. Certainly, producers did. There was a crying need for a new look." So Nakia is being filmed in and around Albuquer- que, N.M., and looks it. Larson says the saying around the Nakia company is that the show has three stars its two leading ac- tors, Robert Forster and Arthur Kennedy, and the state of New Mexico. They shoot to take advantage of where they are, giving the show a look that is different in TV's recent history. Larson formerly produc- ed the Glen Ford show, Cade's County, which was also set in the Southwest. But that one was filmed on the 20th Century Fox lot, smack in the middle of Los Angeles. Hollywood magic made it look like the great outdoors somewhat but it didn't have quite the feel of New Mexico and Arizona. That may be one reason why the show only lasted a quick one season. "Nakia looks a lot better than Cade." Larson says. But, Larson says, some shows go on location and then don't use where they are. He remembers The Monroes, which was shot around Jackson Hole, Wyo., which is glorious country. Yet they did a lot of interiors, and it could have been a Hollywood soundstage. This year, all kinds of shows are doing their thing miles from the plush glamor of Hollywood. There are adventure stories Kodiak in Alaska, Sierra in Yosemite National Park which is only right. But the strange thing is that some shows which could have been shot here are being shot there. Nakia could have been filmed in a studio, because there are a lot of interiors. So could Petrocelli, a story of a lawyer, but that one is be- ing filmed in Tucson, Ariz., for NBC. "The primary advantage of doing it saysLen Katzman, of the show's production team, "is the flavor of Arizona. There's a different feeling when you shoot on location a continuity to the work. "When you make a show in Hollywood, it's just like going to work every mor- ning. You finish your work and you go back home, back to your other life. But, on location, everyone is together 24 hours of the day. That means there aren't as many things to distract you from your job." But, Katzman says, there are distinct disad- vantages to shooting on location, too. The biggest disadvan- tage is the cost factor. It costs much more to shoot on location. "We have to fly our crews and our guest stars to he says. "We have to house and feed our people there. It costs us about a day per man more to shoot on location. And the crew size is just about the same as if we were doing it in Hollywood." "It adds tremendously to the says Larson. "And there are other problems, problems of logistics. Because we are so far from a film lab, the director does not see the dailies, and has no idea how the show is shaping up. He has to depend on us, back here in Hollywood, to tell him. It's very awkward." But Larson, like the others, feels that the look of the product, filmed away from Hollywood, is worth the cost and the trouble. It remains to be seen whether the public notices and cares one way or the other. "I hope they Larson says. "It seems to me to be obvious. Remember Naked City? It got an extra veneer because it was shot on the streets of New York. The Streets of San Francisco looks right. I think locations help."
