About me

I am a 31-year-old South African / Ecuadorian Wildlife filmmaker and avid adventurer. My passion for wildlife and nature is the reason why I feel it is my responsibility to create wildlife films that focus on conserving our natural world.

I have been very fortunate to be able to travel to many wild places and film some of the most beautiful parts of Southern Africa and South America. In 2009-2014 I lived in Cuenca, Ecuador where I spent most of my time hiking in the El Cajas National Park in search of reptiles and amphibians. I have also traveled all over South Africa, Spain, Namibia, and Botswana to film the international wildlife TV show Siyaya Africa, Siyaya Coast to Coast, and Wild World Diaries.

I am presently working on a Feature film called Snake Heroes and my YouTube series The Adventures of Robert Wedderburn.

“My goal is to create wildlife documentaries that are genuine and unique”

    Hi Robert!

    My name is Casey Edelman and I wanted to connect because I’m working on a timely and heartfelt feature documentary being made by a collective of filmmakers, who have projects on Netflix, HBO, Hulu, etc, including Bob Saget and Sean Bradley who frequently works with the Duplass Brothers. The documentary will capture what the world did during the COVID-19 pandemic — all told through the eyes of people around the globe.

    We came across your video titled “Day 1 of Self-Isolation – CORONAVIRUS VLOG” on Vimeo and would love to ask your permission to use it in the documentary as we think your video would be a great addition to the story.

    The license would be non-exclusive, so you would still own the material. Happy to answer any questions. Otherwise, please let me know if this would be okay?

    Thanks so much,
