Di Rosen is an award winning, highly accomplished, creative and respected Producer/Director with extensive local and international exposure and experience across a multitude of genres. I am based in Cape Town South Africa and have been in the industry for well over 30 years. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and mentoring those entering into the industry, especially those from a disadvantaged background.
My earlier years were invested in achieving a 3 year Marketing and Public Relations Diploma and working in the advertising world where I gained experience in print, radio and television.
My passion is directing and telling stories as well as directing music and big events in my home that is known as an OB Van – Outside Broadcast Facility as well as single cam . I am very well equipped in Pre – Production, Production and a full understanding of Post Production, hence when I direct, I direct with the edit in mind, making an editor’s life so much easier and delivering a great product every time.
I have worked on a multitude of genre’s both live and pre-recorded ranging from conferences, corporates, extreme sports, documentaries, magazine shows, talk shows, game and variety programmes as well as large music concerts and events, both locally and internationally.
I have been blessed to work in countries other than South Africa, like Cannes in France, Israel, Holland, Utah, India, Qatar, Bahrain, Nigeria and Ghana.
I have a very strong working ethic, a team player and long hours are never a problem. I am passionate and a perfectionist and always strive to achieve my clients dreams and more.
I started off working in advertising agencies as an Assistant T.V. Producer, moved onto a Production Company as Production Manager, head hunted and was Agency producer for Radio and T.V. when I finally started freelancing for the South African Broadcasting Corporation as a Production Secretary, Floor manager, Production Manager, Producer and then started directing my own shows.
In 1997 I branched out on my own freelanced and formed Di Rosen Productions.
I have always had a passion for change and making an impact by telling stories, producing programmes that bring about positive change. Helping people through hard times, encouraging them to follow their dreams giving them inspiration/awareness to own their own part of a greater purpose. Helping people strive with their gifts and talents and in general making the universe a better place.
