HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Juan Carlos Pinedo, shown at left, booked a role in an industrial for Yale University after the casting director saw their headshots and resumes on their respective profiles in the HOLA online directory and contacted them. He also nabbed a role in the Columbia University student film Oasis (written and directed by Carmen Jiménez) after reading about the casting notice in the announcements that HOLA e-mails its members and self-submitting.

Anthony Ruiz, Carlos Navedo and Jorge Pupo starred in the School of Visual Arts (SVA) student film Calaveras (written and directed by Jaime Medrano, Jr.). The film was nominated for two SVA Short Film Fest awards, one for Best Cinematography and one for Best Actor for Ruiz, shown at right. The awards ceremony will take place at the end of May at the Directors Guild Theater, located in Manhattan's West Side near Columbus Circle.
