About Dan Velez...


Dan Velez was taken from us all too soon.  We lost one of the most passionate, caring, energetic, brilliant, and inspiring minds in the entertainment industry. He touched the lives of countless people around the world and his tragic death was a devastating shock to his family, friends, colleagues, and our entire community.

Dan’s journey from Colombia to Michigan to LA was fueled by an incredible inner-drive, energy, and desire to DREAM BIG. Those dreams turned into multiple successful companies and helped create a platform for thousands of actors to, in turn, follow their dreams.

As we thought about the best way to honor Dan’s legacy, the answer was simple – continue to do what he loved most – help new actors pursue their dreams and unleash their creativity.
