I am John D. Costello.
Graduated with a B.A. in Media Studies and Production (formerly Broadcasting, Tellecommunications and Mass Media) from Temple University in August 2013. Armed with a B.A. from Temple University and an A.A.S. from Community College of Philadelphia I am ready to show the world what these two expensive pieces of paper really mean.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dream and start a career. I am looking to do sound design and mixing for TV/Film, specifically animation. In the mean time I’m down to do whatever. I can record and mix for bands and run lives shows. So I’m here to see what an east coaster can do on the other side.
While in Philadelphia I was an audio engineer at Eventions Productions. I was an engineer for various events around the Philadelphia area. These events can be small college shows to large corporate event. Many have a video presentation and lighting. I was also an Event Manager there. I was in charge of running the event for the day i.e. assigning jobs to crew members, keeping a timeline for when thins must be completed, and being the main point of contact with the client.
I am also a recording engineer. Having interned at a studio and spending free time recording at home I have developed skills for recording and mixing. View my portfolio for a sample of my recording/engineering work. Some of These were recorded at Tweek Studios and others in my home. Behance.net/JohnDCostello
Since my move to LA I have done a few free lance jobs. Also started working on a podcast you can download at earbudtheater.com My first episode was entitled “This Monstrous Life.” I did some of the sound design on it. In the mean time I’m doing what every one does out here and work at a restaurant, or two.
Well, I quit the restaurants because I got a job at Jim Henson Studios! I’m a runner, its cool. No more restaurant jobs! Also, continuing more sound work for Earbud Theater.
