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.

Learning motion capture

We've got East Africa's only motion capture studio, where students pull on bodysuits, perform movements and then pull those digitally-recorded performances into special animation software.

Filming and working A/V in Bugesera

ADMA students worked at the Sept. 2014 Bugesera screening of "Open Heart," an Oscar-nominated documentary film by Cori Shepherd Stern.

Around ADMA

Our two computer labs have a total of 35 state-of-the art work stations with all the latest digital media software. Students also have a chance to work in our green screen room and motion capture studio.

ITU Award Presentation

The ADMA was given a World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Project Prize by the International Telecommunications Union in recognition of advancing Rwandans on connectivity to information and communication technologies (ICT). The prize was awarded during the WSIS Forum 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland, on May 14. 


Launch Day, Kigali 

The ADMA officially opened on October 26th. The ceremony was fortunate to have the Minister of Education Vincent Biruta, Pixel Corps CEO Alex Lindsay and WDA Director General Jerome Gasana in attendance. The new ADMA sign was unveiled and attendees were given a tour of the facility and viewed a launch video produced by the ADMA students.


Kigali Trade Fair

After a week of training with the cameras and microphones, 10 students set out from the ADMA to interview various vendors at the International Trade Fair in Kigali. The students were practicing their shooting skills in-situ at the trade fair, and later edited the interviews down to 2-3 minutes segments.
