He was credited for his beautiful performance clips for Celine Dion, including 1991's multiple Academy Award and Grammy winning song, "Beauty and the Beast." In addition, Dominic directed Celine's top 10 hit "If You Asked Me To" and the multi-platinum duet for Sleepless In Seattle soundtrack's "When I Fall In Love."
