Joey Morelli's award-winning career in postproduction includes 21 TELLY awards, 10 ADDY awards, and 1 PROMAX award. The 1998 Digital Media grad is a Senior Video Editor and Compositor at EA Tiburon, where he works in the studio's in-house video production company.
Before joining EA, Joey worked his way up the ranks in the local television community and produced freelance video content for the Miami Dolphins, the Florida Marlins, the Florida Panthers, and Nissan. It was while working at the Golf Channel when he got the call from EA.
"I thought it was a joke, one of my buddies goofing on me," says Joey. "So I got back and said 'Sure, I'll come in for an interview.' This is now the best gig I've ever had. It's EA Sports – when nobody's looking, I'm walking around the halls going 'This place rocks.'"
At EA, Joey creates marketing clips and in-game videos for titles like Rory Mcllroy PGA Tour, Madden NFL, EA Sports MMA, and NASCAR Kart Racing. It's an impressive library of games that are played every day by millions – a very cool feat in the eyes of Joey's two kids.
"My son constantly tells me, 'you're famous,'" says Joey.
"For my family to think that I'm famous – their pride in what I do is bigger than me feeling that these games are all over the world. I am very humbled, but I know what I did to get where I am – a lot of long nights, long weekends. Nothing happens by accident. You set yourself in motion and it just leads you to where you want to go."
