CRANK up the Volume to get the best sound effects for my son Joseph DeBenedictis’s World Cup music video.

“Feel The Game”

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 12 years since my son Joseph wrote this soccer song. The message of the song is now probably more relevant than ever!

As a professional, he has done video editing, directing and put together a pilot episode for a couple of show ideas he has. At this precise moment, he’s in Hawaii directing a pilot TV episode for a popular chef.

He’s been fortunate to have worked with many good people, been part of numerous creative teams in the sports video industry, and won 10 Emmy awards for sports documentary reporting.

I hope that everyone enjoys watching the video and World Cup 2022. as much as Joseph and I are planning. GO ________________. Guess who we are rooting for 🙂
