Love in the Age of Like.
Dominic has been a driving force on three of the most popular primetime animated shows of all time: “The Simpsons”, “King of the Hill”,and “Family Guy”, all garnering him Emmy nominations.
Seth MacFarlane personally tapped Dom to direct two of the Family Guy Star Wars spoofs. Family Guy’s “Blue Harvest” not only became one of the most successful episodes commercially for Family Guy, but artistically it won the approval of George Lucas himself and got an Emmy nom for Dominic. It is revered by audiences and peers alike. Dominic’s life began as a child who fell in love with art and drawing.
He went on to study art at UCLA, where he earned a BFA in Art and a Masters in Animation. One of his first professional jobs was on the seminal years of The Simpsons, where he honed his chops. He was one of a great crew of animators that helped shaped the show into what we see today. After 20 years working on the top animated shows, Dominic knows the medium better than anyone.
He is an award-winning filmmaker with his recent animated short “Lovesick Fool-Love in the Age of Like” about his own creation based on his life searching for love, which he wrote and directed. It stars Lisa Kudrow, Janeane Garofalo, and Fred Willard, in addition to Dominic who plays a character much like himself.
The film has won “Best Comedy” and “Best Animated Short” in several top festivals. Dominic still sticks to his artistic roots where he has monthly art gallery showings. He is currently lending his directing talents to the cutting edge new show “Rick and Morty”.
I highly recommend you check out the Trailer for Dom’s Animated Film and keep an eye out because I think this will be a series for sure!
