Who better to author success stories for up-and-coming artists than a man who exemplifies the great American success story himself? Dale Resteghini did not even begin his successful career as a director / producer / writer / music supervisor until he was 28 years old. Once he found his true calling, he began his meteoric rise to the top of his field, bringing up artists including Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, OT Genasis, Hatebreed, Fallout Boy, Dillinger Escape Plan and Trivium with him.

Resteghini grew up in Boston, MA watching films as an escape from his working class, blue collar life.  A spirited young man, Resteghini found himself in quite a bit of trouble, quite often.  His pursuit of his dream – starting an acting career at the age of 19 – put him on the straight and narrow.  Later, he moved to New York City where he discovered his love of film making and began his life behind the camera. During his New York years, he found success there working with Directors, such as Alfonso Cuaron, Taylor Hackford and Roland Emmerich among others.

While living in New York City, Resteghini wrote and directed an independent film that played at the Urban World Film Festival. That film, ‘Colorz Of Rage,’ garnered him an audience Award where Samuel Jackson, Marla Gibbs and Whitney Houston all congratulated him on a great film debut. Renown film critic Steve Lyons called ‘Colorz Of Rage’ “…a riveting piece of real life put on film!’ This moment took his career as a Director to the next level and propelled him into the exploding world of music videos.

Resteghini’s music videos are constantly found at the top of MTV, BET and FUSE playlists and have been nominated for various awards within the Music Video Industry – one being an MTV Video Award for the “Grand Theft Autumn” video he directed for the band, Fallout Boy.  His combined music video views totals over 3,000,000,000!!! He is truly a global brand unto himself having worked on almost every continent.

Resteghini produced Kanye West’s first fashion film in London and currently has several feature film, TV and web projects in various stages of production. Not be limited in the roles of Director and Writer, Resteghini is also wearing the Producer hat and at present is Producing the 4-million-dollar comedy entitled ‘My Man Is A Loser’ in NYC. He is an integral part of several tech start ups and sits on the board of directors of The Universal Hip Hop Museum.

Dale Resteghini is one person who knows no limits, accepts no boundaries and his massive network of recording artists, actors, celebrities, social media stars, film studio executives, managers and agents as well as record label owners and managers makes him one of the best connected, most dynamic and unique people in entertainment.
