A director who has worked extensively in television commercials and music video, Dominic Sena made his entry into feature film directing with the much-discussed, brutally violent feature "Kalifornia" (1993), and then virtually disappeared from film until he helmed the 2000 remake of the car chase cult classic "Gone in 60 Seconds." Starting out as a cameraman, counting among his earliest projects director H.B. Halicki's "The Junkman" (1982), Sena moved into directing in 1985 and began a fruitful and exceptionally creative career as a music video and commercial director for Propaganda Films. His commercial clients included such big names as Nike, IBM and Apple Computers, and he became known for creating visually arresting and memorable spots that captured the audience's attention and earned critical acclaim.
