Pascal Capitolin is a sound designer and production audio recordist since 1995. He was born in France with a Caribbean background (Martinique / Guadeloupe).

His work includes collaborations with well-known filmmakers such as Phillip Scheffner (Day of the Sparrow), Angelina Mackarone (The Look-Charlotte Rampling), US documentary filmmaker and Oscar winner Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman (paragraph 175). The special thing about Pascal's work is that he nurtures the audio production from the first line of the scenario to the final sound mix.

Many of Pascal's productions are internationally awarded and honored projects, including "Kinshasa Symphony" (2009); "Rythm is it!" (2003); "Trip to Asia" (2005); "Hotel Sahara" (2008); "In Berlin" (2009); "Revision" (2011).
