If you missed this at the CTN eXpo now's your chance. ‘Creating a Rockstar Portfolio’ is a workshop designed to help artists showcase their work according to their own artistic voice, technical strengths and specific career goals. In addition to reviewing portfolios for Disney Feature in a variety of contexts, thereby viewing a cross-section of portfolios from art schools the world over, Dominick co-taught the Portfolio class in Art Center’s Entertainment Track for six years, helping to craft the portfolios that landed today’s ‘Rock Stars’ at many of the major studios. Drawing on this experience, Dominick will lecture on the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of designing an effective portfolio, and critique the portfolios of several volunteers in a group setting.
Meet Dominick R. Domingo
Before graduating with distinction from Art Center College of Design, Dominick R. Domingo interned at Disney Feature Animation, training in various aspects of the animation process. After graduating, he spent ten years with Disney Feature as a concept artist and background painter, in both Los Angeles and Paris.
His Disney credits include Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Tarzan, Little Match Girl, and One by One. He also maintained a roster of independent clients including ORION Pictures, Parker Brothers, Milton Bradley, the Pacific Design Center, Comedy Central, and Wizards of the Coast. In the nineties Dominick illustrated a number of Books for Young Readers for Harcourt, Putnam, Penguin, Random House and Lowell House.
Dominick has taught at Art Center for over fifteen years,the first to offer Entertainment electives within the Illustration program.
In 2001 he attended the New York Film Academy and shifted his attention to directing live action films. His award-winning live-action films led him to a writing resume in the form of original screenplay credits. Around the same time, two of his narrative nonfiction essays were accepted into anthologies, one of which won the Solas award for Best Travel Writing in the humor category. The Nameless Prince, Dominick’s foray into Young Adult Urban Fantasy, was released in July from Twilight Times Books. He is currently working with several artists on the graphic novel version, as well as the sequel to the novel. Dominick currently divides his time between teaching, his own projects, and working in house for companies such as Blue Sky, Animation Lab in Israel, RGH, and Disney Interactive.
