Welcome to ro-vi film

For many years now a great deal of our time has been spent in Africa where we have, through our filming activities, become fascinated by the abundance of natural beauty and the variety of wildlife here.

The biodiversity of this continent is high  but unfortunately many species in Africa are highly endangered and threatened by extinction. Our concern is to show what we should appreciate, protect and save.

Africa´s wilderness is one of the world´s richest and most vulnerable ecosystems. If there was any real hope of preserving what was left, Africa’s story had to be told.
We’ve had many adventures in our lives but we knew it would be the ultimate adventure when we left our comfortable life in Germany to travel to Africa.  Hermanus, in South Africa, also known as the best whale watching spot in the world, was the ideal spot for us to have our headquarters to operate from and to produce our films.

Again and again we have exchanged comfort for hardship and sometimes safe routine for danger...  the whole of Africa has been good to us and we wanted to tell the stories of her spectacular wildlife, the pristine wilderness areas and the life of the rural people in Southern Africa.

A film must end somewhere.. but our travels will still go on with more stories to film.

All film material since 2005 has been produced exclusively in HD quality.

Professional aerial filming with Quadcopters, Multicopters and Drones. Some underwater action shots done with GoPro Hero 3
