Mixer Alan deGraaf joins Company 3 Toronto
Company 3 Toronto has added sr. re-recording mixer Alan deGraaf to its postproduction sound department. He joins Company 3 with 25 years of experience, most recently with Technicolor and Formosa. His credits include Guillermo del Toro’s series The Strain for the FX Network; the Naomi Watts thriller The Desperate Hour for Roadside Attractions; the MGM/Amblin production Billy the Kid for Epix and the internationally popular American Gods for Amazon Studios.
James Fraser, VP and general manager, Company 3 Toronto, said of deGraaf, “He is a very accomplished artist who will provide our clients with another exceptional and creative voice.”
A native of the Toronto area, deGraaf received his diploma at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, with the intention of becoming a mixer for music, but as he learned more about postproduction sound for film and television, he discovered he loved it, and had a great aptitude for the work. He started in the Foley department of a boutique studio, where he learned all the fine points of sound mixing and worked his way into the mixer role.
“I’ve been very interested in the quality of the work that Company 3 has been doing in Toronto for a number of years,” said deGraaf. “Such great work has come out of their mixing stages--Nightmare Alley, The Shape of Water, and so much more. I can’t wait to get started!”
