The Africa Digital Media Academy


Africa Digital Media Academy is a vocational training school in Kigali, Rwanda. We provide students with skills in 3D computer graphics, animation, motion capture and video production and more so they can work in all areas of the digital media industry.

The Know Zone Rwanda Animation Project

The ADMA completed 9 of 13 animated episodes for a pilot children's educational TV series called The Know Zone Rwanda for Mediae. The students participated in training conducted by UK based animator Andy Walker and then worked with animation supervisor Alfred Muchilwa from script to delivery using both Motion and After Effects. The series is currently airing on RBA on Saturdays at 8 am and Wednesdays at 5 pm. We believe these are the first cartoons produced entirely in Rwanda, using local Rwandan artists and Rwandan animators. The following video documents the creative process.
