Meet our industry experts:
Dale has long been using his imagination and visual sensibilities to creative communicate and tell stories over his evolving career.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dale studied at the Art Center College of Design. As an honored graduate, Dale continued his post grad work as a young, award winning Art Director/Designer while pursuing his passion as a filmmaker. Dale’s formal training in art and design eventually helped pave the way for him as a visual storyteller. His transition from design to directing was a natural and swift evolution.
As a director, Dale has produced and directed numerous, award-winning films and projects as well as a variety of music videos, industrial films, infomercials and live theater productions in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
In 2007, Dale was selected as a semi-finalist filmmaker for the Steven Spielberg/Mark Burnett Show, “On The Lot” for his film, “THE TURNING,” a Sci-Fi/Horror/Action short set in the distant and dark future. His Sci-Fi/Horror short, “SOUL FIRE RISING” won BEST SCI-FI Short at the Cinema City International Film Festival (2011) and has extended its life currently as an on-going, online series for HULU/STARZ Digital starring Jodi Lyn O’Keefe and Kelly Stables.
Dale then went on to direct, “AREA 407” for DeLaurentiis Productions, an experimental “found footage” narrative centered around a fateful group of plane crash survivors who discover their crash site is inhabited by a mysterious and vicious creature. The film was acquired by IFC Films/Sundance Selects for a successful platform theatrical and VOD run.
