Eloy’s most current production, Lake Los Angeles, directed by award-winning director, Mike Ott, will have its world premiere at the Los Angles Film Festival in the summer of 2014. Eloy has also appeared in more than 40 short films that have screened in festivals all over the world.

In early 2014, Eloy formed Mighty Dog Entertainment, an independent production company that is producing a documentary called Return to the Philippines, the story of Leon Cooper, a 94 year-old WW2 veteran who was a Higgins Boat Commander in six missions, ferrying troops onto beaches to do battle. For close to a decade, Cooper has been trying to shine light on the 88,000 MIA’s from WW2 who never made it home. Lou Diamond Phillips is attached as the narrator of the film.
While Eloy is better known for his commitment to his art and entertainment, he is just as passionate off-screen in his commitment to a number of charitable causes. His philanthropic endeavors focus on issues like homelessness, education and poverty, social justice and human rights. Some of the charities he supports include Union Rescue Mission, RFK Foundation, Izunome Association, as well as numerous orphanages and schools in Latin America.
