Introducing 3D filmmaker Sebastien Rombi our course leader.
Sebastien was born in Libreville, Gabon (Central Africa), where from an early age his first passion was African wildlife conservation. After studying in France, he returned to Central Africa and took an active role in a Gorilla rehabilitation project with Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). His next step took him to Cape Town, South Africa where he operated as a tour guide, taking guided tours through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland. After a few years spent on the road, he had the opportunity to work on his first wildlife documentary, “Swimming Scared” about Great White Sharks and Cape Fur Seals filmed in the notorious waters off Cape Town. After even a short time working on this film, Seb finally found his true passion which took him to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve where he operated as a 2D/3D Camera operator, editor and presenter for Wildearth.TV for their award winning live safaris. Being one of the pioneers in the 3D film industry, he was approached by world renowned filmmakers, Foster Brother Productions, to work on Dragon 3D. This 1 hour film is about scuba diving with Nile Crocodiles in the Okavango Delta and Seb was responsible for all the online 3D editing.
During his film career, Seb has edited numerous projects for wildearth.tv, his flagship being a 13 part 3D series about safaris in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
He is now an independent wildlife film maker under Beyond Borders Productions, and he is currently producing his first documentary.
His love and passion for all things wild and free can be seen in his projects, and his kind hearted nature and approachable attitude will allow him to take you to the next level in your filmmaking career.
