Mignone is best known for his work as a rock video director, helming projectsfrom SYSTEM OF A DOWN, DANZIG, SOULFLY and MORBID ANGEL, among others. He also directed the 2007 feature film "On The Doll".

Description of the Vanessa Del Rio film project by the filmmakers: "The criminal element that rose from the thriving adult shop area created some of the highest crime statistics New York City had ever seen. Our story takes place against this tumultuous backdrop."
"The Vanessa Del Rio Film Project" is not a documentary but a feature film based on the life of a character named Vanessa Del Rio.
