V. Alex Marquez – Peeking through the Rear Window

Written by  Tony Razuri


From both in front of and behind the camera, Alex Marquez has been leaving his mark on the film industry since he was a young boy and in a relatively short career has completed more than fifteen films and music videos.

From his home in Caracas Venezuela, Alex began acting at an early age and at twelve, when Hitchcocks, "Rear Window" came his way, he was in love with the behind the scenes aspects of films. That particular movie made such a sharp memory for him he soon selected the name for his production company to be Rear Window Productions.

Alex Marquez moved to Florida at the age of seventeen, where he began to attend classes at Palm Beach community college and the Florida Atlantic University, achieving an Associate in Arts and a Bachelors degree in communications.

Marquez career in films has been distinctive and distinguished nearly since its inception. Winning The Student Showcase of Film Award in 1999 and 2000 by the Palm Beach International Film Festival for the short films “Love” and “Soap Opera” , Alex also took top billing at the 2004 Voices of Local Films Awards, which was part of the Palm Beach International Film Festival. His films are funny and creative, bringing out the zaniness of his on camera muses.

Recently his Mockumentary / 1st feature film "FILM CONTEST?" won BEST FEATURE FILM by A FLORIDA FILMMAKER for the DELRAY FILM FESTIVAL @ Downtown Delray Beach’s Crest Theater May 24, 2009. "Film Contest?" is a fictitious story mockumenting the tragic events which occurred as a result of the "Shoot Sunshine!" film competition resulting in murder. After five filmmakers are selected to compete for a generous grant to shoot a feature film in the State, Miguel Gonzalez and his documentary crew begin an indiscreet look at the "behind the scenes" stories of the controversial film contest, its bizarre finalists and wannabe organizers.

Alex Marquez is currently developing his second feature length film which is entitled "In a Perfect World".
