Report: HOLAfábrica Seminar – Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Commercials with ELAINE DEL VALLE

On Monday, November 26, 2012, HOLA offered a seminar to its members by 2012 HOLA Award recipient Elaine Del Valle titled "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Commercials." The seminar took place at Los Kabayitos Theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA). Del Valle regaled the group of HOLA members on her experience as both an actress (with, as of this writing, nine commercials currently on the air) and as a casting director for commercials to provide a well-rounded look at the process of casting and auditioning for commercials. She also stressed the importance of becoming an HOLA member.

Some of the feedback from those in attendance are listed below.

• "Amazing! [Elaine] not only knows what she's talking about, she understands us."
• "[Elaine] shared a lot of great and helpful information."
• "Great tips!!"
• "Very generous info."
• "Very informative."
• "[Elaine] kept it real. Loved it."
• "Clear, concise, specific."
• "I love Elaine, lots of energy."

HOLA would like to thank the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, Daniel D'Ambrosi, Teatro SEA, Laura Riveros and, of course, Elaine Del Valle for the success of the seminar. Photos of the seminar (by Alphabeta Photography) can be seen below.
