Jacques Naudé

Born in South Africa, Jacques Naudé is a largely self-taught director and cinematographer.

His style portrays evocative visuals rich with texture and color, and a sparse, authentic dialogue and his narratives explore the deep-rooted connection between mankind and their environment. “My approach as a filmmaker is always to invite an eye and ear into a setting as if they are there to experience the subject matter first hand. Never to taint, never to preach, never to objectify.” Jacques’ skills run the gamut from commercial advertising to documentaries and films. He is based in New York City.
