Linda Brandt is a fan vidder, who made vids for Starsky & Hutch and other fandoms in the 1980s. Flamingo has credited her with creating one of the first altered reality vids in 1980, with "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You." She also was part of the vidding collective, The 3 Sisters, which included Lucy Keifer, and Donna Williams.

According to Kandy Fong: "After learning from Kendra and Diana, they showed up at the 1981 Z-Con with 5 machines and a pile of new videos. Diana reports that they set up an assembly line, and cranked out copies of theirs and other's videos, in their room. In other words, they invented the first con copying room. But, The 3 Sisters liked lots of fandoms. After their first S&H videos, they made Miami Vice, Simon and Simon, Hardcastle and McCormick, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, The Professionals, Remington Steel, and Star Trek."
