Stephanie Yudith Rojas :
Stephanie Yudith Rojas was born on September 16, 1984 in Los Angeles, CA, where she has made her home. The daughter to Maria and Erick Rojas and big sister to Geovanny Barragan, she began her love for acting in the high school, in her drama class. With her teacher’s influence, Stephanie made her debut performance in a student film called John Mort about a husband who has a split personality and end ups murdering his wife, the role portrayed by Stephanie.
Altogether, Stephanie has been noted to do both behind and in front of the camera work in both theater and film. Most notably, she starred as a mortician in The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble’s play The Fall To Earth alongside Jo Beth Williams and Deborah Puette, where she was also doubling as a stage hand. Prior to that, she performed in the play Office Space as Barbara Slydell and Anne for the local theater group The Berubians Theater Company. Keeping with the family theme of working, she produced and starred in her own web-series called My Real Life which gave her a bigger appetite for behind the scenes work as a producer. Ever since, she has had her hand in the production of many short films and web series, offering a lending hand to anyone from student film makers up to professionals.
After forming a strong friendship with a director by the name of Charles Clemmons, she was introduced to a lot of hard-working and talented people in the film industry, including, her now business partner, Amanda Nevarez. In 2009, Stephanie started formulating a plan to create her own production company where she could hire and pay people that she had met on set who had work ethics that matched her own. So, after many conversations (and a little pushing from Amanda), Inquisitive Bat Productions (I.B. Prods.) was launched as a DBA in February 2012. Since then, Stephanie and Amanda have taken major steps in making sure they have their foot in the door of as many productions as possible. Still working with students from schools like Los Angeles Mission College and Columbia College Hollywood (CCH), they offer their expertise and advise to help in any way needed to make a successful production. As an actress, Stephanie recently performed as a game show host for a web series pilot for a CCH student, Graham Messadieh, while Amanda sat on the side holding the boom pole.
