Half-Quaked Cast & Crew (Advance Screening)
Cast & crew pose at the advance screening for Half-Quaked, a film Rochelle co-created with Casey Pfeifer that won Best Comedy at OIFF.

Rochelle Muzquiz is an actor and writer originally from Texas.

Rochelle’s passion for film began as a kid when she adopted the used VHS camcorder her dad brought home from work. Inventing scenes on the fly with camera in-hand, Rochelle would make improv videos with her friends at slumber parties and create comedic shorts for school projects. At 14, she wrote her first screenplay called Empty Heads, featuring Barbie dolls and miniature sets she spent all summer building in the living room (thanks, Mom!).

Today, Rochelle is a professional actor represented by Arthouse Talent and has appeared in independent films, theatre and commercials. Her film Half-Quaked, a mockumentary feature she co-created and acted in with Casey Pfeifer, won Best Comedy at Oregon Independent Film Festival and was also nominated for Best Picture.

In 2015, Rochelle was approached by Greg Kerr, who was developing the role of amateur detective Marnie Vega for a sci-fi series pilot called Exceptionals. He cast her in the pilot and invited her to co-write Marnie’s scenes. Rochelle and Greg quickly discovered they had a creative spark between them. They began co-writing story arcs for other characters, organizing shoots, and making a pitch plan. Since then, they have filmed pilot and trailer scenes in Hawaii, Death Valley, Los Angeles, Texas and Bolivia, and they have developed the bulk of the series in partnership, with support from Los Angeles Actress/Writer Amy Tsang.

Rochelle is a driven artist who is organized and technologically savvy — a creative renaissance woman with a business mindset. She loves to collaborate, connect, perform, and make films. Contact her here for acting or film opportunities anywhere in the world.
