From a young age, Santaiti had a knack for performing and entertaining. He comes from a large Italian family that is riddled with artists, musicians and creative minds. He was first introduced to music and chorus; and as he continued on to his adolescent years, he formed various bands. His training began at the age of fifteen, landing various roles on short films and independent films. While taking a hiatus from film, as he was pursuing his career as a musician, his friend/former band mate called him about a role that was “written for him.” He told Santaiti that he was perfect for the part and that he had been talking him up to the director. After a bit of resistance, Santaiti agreed. He landed one of the lead roles and spent two months in Argentina filming on location for the feature “A Band of Rogues”. After the film wrapped, Santaiti knew from then on that this was his passion, his calling, and nothing could hold him back. He later went on to direct, produce, write, and star in the film “Forgive Me Father”. Taylor Ri’chard recognized his multi-faceted talents and asked Santaiti to not only star, but also be the Director of Photography for his debut film “The Final Project”.
