Jacques Koudstaal (Cinematographer)

Jacques Koudstaal is a passionate, creative and technically skilled cinematographer. He was one of only 16 up-and-coming cinematographers worldwide selected to participate in the Budapest Cinematography Masterclass lead by Oscar-winning cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond ASC (‘Deliverance’, ‘Deer Hunter’). He has worked on ‘Rugby Motors’ (sitcom), ‘Die Vloed’ (mockumentary), and ‘Mdantsane’ (documentary).
One of his recent projects, a short film for Focus Features, was in competition at Sundance, Berlin and the Rotterdam Film Festivals.


‘Jimmy in Pienk’ is a quirky comedy about Jimmy Bester, a rugged mielie farmer who lives out his creative impulses by shearing sheep on neighbouring farms.

When Jimmy’s father suddenly dies in a freak accident, he is confronted by two menacing (and comedic) loan sharks who come to collect what his father owes.

For the first time in his life Jimmy gathers the courage to leave his home and travel to Cape Town to seek help from his uncle in mastering the art of hairdressing and becoming a metro-sexual man.
