Almost four years ago, a teacher for the Zimbabwe Institute of Digital Arts posted a request to MacCentral for used Macs to supply the school’s fledgling graphics and design school. Alex Lindsay, founder of the
dvGarage, a QuickTime-only site dedicated to “building the next generation of visual media artists,” saw the article and was in Zimbabwe six months later.
“Since then, we’ve been in contact constantly and building high-end training in Zimbabwe,” Lindsay told MacCentral. “All the first students we worked with initially are now in design firms or larger film schools. The new students are learning video, 3D, compositing, photogrammetry and more.”
Currently, he’s in Zimbabwe again and is posting “near daily” reports in
an online blog. You can read how the Zimbabwe Institute of Digital Arts is using eMacs and other Apple products.
