Welcome to Acting 101 for Film & Television!

Story quest Studio’s 101 class is everyone’s favorite intro to acting class and the perfect primer for entering the world of film and TV. Whether you are new to acting, transitioning from theater to on-camera work, or looking to break into the NM film/TV industry, this class gives you essential tools and information to jump-start your acting career – and we mean LEAP! 

All classes provide powerful insight into the craft of acting using the Discovery Technique as well as personal guidance on how to navigate the acting business from New Mexico to LA.  It is truly the intro-to-acting class you have been searching for! 

One reason this is the best intro class (EVER) is we recently made a grand addition. We celebrate all of the great work done during the 8 weeks with a virtual zoom showcase in front of an industry professional!

Past guests include: Michael Druck (LA Casting Director), Carissa Mitchell (Mitchell & Associates Talent), Kathryn Brink (NM Casting Director) and Lily Bankston (Bankston Talent), as well as Brad Lemack (LA Talent Manager). This year we have been working with LA Casting Director, Michael Druck, and expect he will be our guest for the current sessions.

Get ready for total impact, as students leave this class falling in love with acting and blasting into the film and tv industry.


Monique Candelaria is a Mescalero Apache Descendant mixed with Mexican and European Ancestry from the state of New Mexico. She graduated from the University of New Mexico in 2009 with a Fine Arts Theatre Degree emphasis in acting and by 2010 she became Sag-Eligible on the feature film “Bless Me, Ultima”. This was only the beginning for this ethnically mixed Two-Spirited actor. The 3 most recent works which show the trajectory of her work are “Driftless”, “Lovecraft Country: Episode 4 History of Violence” as the character ‘Yahima’ and “Spirit Rangers”. Here is Monique’s link tree to have the ability to follow all of her spiritual and artistic endeavors linktr.ee/MKC.369 .
