Thomas Pape was the boom operator for the entire first season of ALFA (working title GROW). Working alongside Kim Dalum who was the shows Mixer, they created a sound team that was two steps ahead of the production at all times, always planing and anticipation the directors next moves. This is one of the reasons why the series have such pristine dialogue quality.
Great care was also taken to plant microphones and use stereo microphones for important set audio such as the action sequences, to capture audio as true to the real world sounds as possible.
Thomas Pape edited dialogue and on-set audio for episode 2, 4, 6, 7 & 8. Furthermore he designed sounds and cut effects for episodes 2, 6, 7 & 8. The Audio team was supervised by Henrik “Gugge” Garnov.
Thomas Pape recorded and edited all the ADR for this season of Alfa. The show had almost 500 cues recorded for more than 30 actors. This was handled by using a combination of Pro Tools and ADR Master Studio from Non-Lethal Applications.
All lines were recorded with two different microphones to provide ultimate flexibility in editing.
