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.

Elaine Del Valle was featured in Latin Trends magazine where her role as a co-producer of the popular interactive webseries "Gran'pa Knows Best" was mentioned. Del Valle negotiated an acquisition deal with HBO Latino for the series (in a first of its kind deal for interstitial programming). Created, co-produced, directed, shot and edited by William D. Caballero (shown at right, with Del Valle and "Gran'pa") and based on his award-winning short film How You Doin', Boy? Voicemails From Gran'pa, its star is Caballero's own grandfather Víctor Muriel (who voices the title character, itself a 3D model of Muriel). "Gran'pa Knows Best" (which can also be seen on HBO Go, HBO Now and HBO On Demand, in addition to HBO Latino). To read the article, click on the image at right.
