  • Monterey County Film Commission Industry Mixer at John Steinbeck House in Salinas a Big Success The latest “Hollywood in Your Backyard” event, held at John Steinbeck’s childhood home in Salinas, was standing-room only. It was a chance for those in the film industry to mix and mingle with Monterey County film industry professionals from producers to location scouts to videographers, all in an effort to discover our local people, locations, and other resources available for on-location film production. Next mixer is planned for Jan. 28.
