By Anisa Samarxhiu
With the growing popularity of science fiction genre and dystopian future theme, CASTINGHUB member Alexander Martinez, has made his contribution to the genre. Although he lives in New Jersey, he and his family made the trip to Philadelphia, where Alexander was discovered by CASTINGHUB judges Carrie Sykes and Zack Annous. After 6 months of joining CASTINGHUB, a commercial networking service for those who are looking to have a career in the entertainment industry, Alexander has gotten a part in the feature film “Caihong City”.
“Caihong City” is a feature film about a post-apocalyptic, dystopian society separating between the haves and have nots. A dying young man must pass a super test in order to become a part of the perfect society. While taking this test, he comes upon a computer glitch. He goes to find out how to fix the glitch in the system and through the process, he finds out that this perfect society is not as it seems and unveils one of the city’s deepest secrets.
Although the movie is set in a new world that is so unlike our own, film explores universal and human  themes of belonging and what it’s like to be an immigrant in a society, feeling as if they will never belong. The movie also examines what happens when there is a break in the routine and how we deal with it, whether that comes in the form of a glitch in the system or love.
Ashley Martinez, Alexander’s mother gushed about Alexander’s experience saying, “He enjoyed it and had a wonderful time. He made new friends and gained great experience. Being onset was exciting and left him with a feeling of joy.” At just 5 years old, participating in this movie is a great opportunity for Alexander and is his first role in a feature film. Alexander not only has the chance to understand the process of acting and what it takes to make a movie, he will soon get to have more exposure as the film will soon be featured in movie festivals.
