Domonic Smith is a filmmaker, camera operator, editor, director, AND producer. Needless to say, we talked a lot about the film. You’ll also hear about swindling in Las Vegas, going from editing film to directing, and what it’s like to have your Nightmare On Elm Street fan trailer go viral (internet trolls included). Then, we get a taste of what it was like working on the crew for Tiger King and Domonic tells us the blueprint for the perfect movie.
Domonic Smith was born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was first introduced to video production at his local cable access center where he began exploring the basics of camera technique and film making. After developing a passion for the work behind the camera, he attended The Art Institute of Tampa to develop the skills needed for the complex art of directing. Domonic graduated in 2014 and hit the ground running co-directing his first feature film, Waves which is set to release later this year.
“As an artist I am always aiming for that element that sets me apart [as a creator]… The result of that mindset has helped me create a special mix of commercial type visuals connected with a unique style of storytelling. I love pushing my limits, breaking down walls, and creating the new!” -Domonic “Domo” Smith
Domonic has produced dozens of films, commercials, documentaries, music videos and an assortment of visual arts projects. He is an award-winning director with a growing history of creating award-winning films in festivals throughout Michigan and Florida.
