Well, it's been a busy month for the Imperial County Film Commission. The film industry has been hurrying to get its filming done locally because it gets too hot. Magazines such as Russian Vogue and GO (Italian GQ) and car companies like Nissan and Hyundai blew in and out before the heat got too bad for them.
The big event for the Film Commission, however, was the "Spring Into Stardom" talent show. More than 50 performers entered the contest and took their chances in the preliminary rounds June 11 and 12. The field was narrowed to 26 acts that would continue onto the finals Friday at the Old Post Office Pavilion in El Centro. Dinner and the show were open to the public. For those who attended, sorry about the mishaps during dinner.
The show, however, was a hit. The evening was led by our two celebrity emcees, Don Lee, a former Holtville resident, and Aaron Moody of Oregon, both of whom are actors in Hollywood and have been seen in numerous commercials for Volkswagen and Reebok.
