(HND) Film and Video Technology

Tshwane University of Technology

Conservationist, adventurer and filmmaker Didi Schoeman is the founding member and creative force behind ProAfrica TV.  


His work has been showcased over his 16 year career on international channels such as National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet, ZDF, Arte, DSTV and a host of other stations around the globe.

Didi grew up on a farm in South Africa with a family that dedicated a large portion of their time to raising abandoned and orphaned wild animals such as lions, monkeys and various antelope species. His passion for adventure and the great outdoors spilled over into his great love of making movies, sparked at the tender age of 12 with the family’s first home video camera.


After completing his film studies at the Tshwane University of Technology (formerly known as Pretoria Technikon) he embarked on a career that took him around the world filming documentaries and high end television commercials for various production houses until he launched ProAfrica Productions in June 2002.

He has proven himself a talented and versatile filmmaker that is equally at home behind and in front of the camera.


When he is not filming, Didi is an avid pilot with a passion for vintage aircraft, a keen sailor and a bit of an adrenaline junkie on his Snow and Kite boards. He speaks fluent Afrikaans, German, English and Swedish and is actively involved in various conservation projects around Africa.
