An interesting note about Costanzo is that he's a former magician, who still does the occasional magic show. It's the hand/eye coordination skills of being a magician that allow him to excel at performing Foley, or at least, it helped him get his first Foley job at Sound One in New York. "Now," he says, "I make balloons, because it's easier to keep them in my pocket. I can't keep 20 tricks, but I can keep a packet of balloons. I can still entertain. I've always been an entertainer." When Costanzo first started out, he was able to do less than 100 Foley cues a day because that's how fast the technology at that time would allow him to go. "We were working on 35mm stripe," he recalls. "All our machines would roll back at speed, and roll forward at speed. That was as fast as you could go. Eventually, there were high-speed dubbing machines, so the machines could fast forward and roll back faster. That was a big innovation at the time." With digital technology, Costanzo says he's able to perform nearly 400 Foley cues in a day. "If it's footsteps, and they're all pretty similar," he says, "then you can knock out hundreds of cues in a day. The biggest change in my career has been the jump to digital. With digital video, you just punch in a number and you go right to the spot.You don't wait for the roll back. You're already listening to it, or you're going on to the next cue."
