Official press release: Dale Resteghini, the much acclaimed and visionary director behind such brutal videos for Mudvayne, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Most Precious Blood, Fear Factory, Trivium, Darkest Hour, Most Precious Blood, Shadows Fall, Dillinger Escape Plan, Bury Your Dead, Madball, and Unearth, in addition to unmatched 150 other videos in just the last three years is giving the winner of the Raging Nation Myspace Music Video Contest a killer music video valued at $100,000, and a chance at a recording contract from both the major and top indie labels that Resteghini regularly works with. When asked why he would make such an offer to an unsigned band, the director said, "Listen, my life has been as hard as most of the guys and girls out there trying to make it, trying to pay bills, trying to do what everyone tells them they can't do! I never subscribed to succumbing to that mode of thinking, never gave in to following the leader or the popular choice, always marched to the beat of my own drum and traveled the road less traveled! In other words, if you're not gonna help me or believe in me, then get the *#@! out of my way or get run over! My success can be attributed to the bands, labels, managers and people in the industry that believed in me and every single one of these people from NYC to LA to the UK to Australia will tell you I leave as much passion and sweat on my video or film sets as they leave blood in a pit and a quote I coined in 1997 with rapper Redman on my first film that I live by is 'Let the sleepers sleep and the haters hate!!!' I shoot 99% of all of my videos on the very best format which is 35MM film for the very best results. What I don't do is just pull up to an abandoned warehouse with a video camera, a few flash lights, a Halloween store smoke machine, shake the camera, call it a day and take the band's/labels's money! Yes 35MM film is a lot more expensive and yes it takes more people and steps to get in the can but the results are undeniable and undisputable. I do what I do with the same D.I.Y. spirit as you the musician approach your art!" In additon to his metal and hardcore, Resteghini has also done videos for Fall Out Boy, Juelz Santana, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Midtown, Jada Kiss, Codeseven, and many others.
