Martini’s journey into the world of film was a testament to his multifaceted nature. Prior to his career in motion picture production and acting, he held pivotal roles in corporate security and real estate development, showcasing his diverse skill set and unwavering dedication to his pursuits. His unwavering passion for both film and acting was matched only by his fervent support for the Dallas Cowboys, a team he ardently championed.

Dominick Martini dies on December 7th unexpectedly and suddenly. He is survived by his loving wife Christina and devoted daughters Sophia and Joceyln. Dominick was above all else, a family man.

Martini’s contributions to the entertainment industry extended far beyond his professional endeavors; Martini was a mentor, a visionary, a beloved colleague and most importantly a husband to Christina and a father to Jocelyn and Sophia. His impact on those who had the privilege to live and work alongside him remains immeasurable, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of all who knew him. Mr. Martini was scheduled to shoot scenes for the upcoming The Wilde Girls starring Lydia Pear Pentz, Cali Scolari and Teddy Smith, where he was to play a private detective.
