Pascale Neuschäfer


Director of Photography

Pascale has an unusual background as a DoP in that she started her career as an actor before moving behind the camera. She gained an MA in Cinematography at Goldsmiths, studying under the legendary Witold Stok, and hasn’t stopped working since. Whether she’s shooting in a Scottish border town, a Zambian copper mine or the rolling hills of the Eastern Cape in her native South Africa, she’s happy to travel the world and tell a story. She speaks French and German too and will go where the work takes her.
