Bereket Taffese & Hiruy Amanuel Announce Gebeya Media to Launch New Animation Studio

With a goal of becoming the most comprehensive creative specialist in Ethiopia, Gebeya Media Productions announces the launch of its new animation studio.

Gebeya Media Productions announces the launch of its new animation studio to help companies reach their target markets through effective multimedia-focused branding. With its launch set for the end of 2019, the animation studio will amplify powerful brand messages through innovative content and the use of 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, CGI effects, and motion graphics. With a goal of becoming the most comprehensive creative specialist in Ethiopia, Gebeya Media also delivers elite services in storyboarding, character development, texturing, and concept art. 

Due to the lack of contextual knowledge of African culture, many high-tech production studios are unable to cater to companies looking to impact the segment. Consequently, there is a shortage of seasoned multimedia marketers who are familiar with the landscape and can develop meaningful content for an African audience. In addition, media companies that are fully equipped to handle such portfolios exist only in Nigeria and South Africa and are greatly lacking in Ethiopia.

Founded in Addis Ababa, Gebeya Media understands the African market and can help clients successfully penetrate their desired demographic with more significant impact and efficiency. Gebeya is also currently developing a few original animation scripts that are going to be produced and brought to screen at the end of 2020. Rather than just capturing or streaming content, Gebeya’s capabilities rival competitors like IROKO when it comes to producing distinguished original content.

In an interview with Vizaca, Gebeya’s co-founder Hiruy Amanuel expressed his vision to empower entrepreneurs throughout the continent with innovative technology solutions. The new animation studio will shape this ambition through inspired marketing content and will help to preserve the African culture by bringing them onto a global scale.

As a veteran in tech investments and an educator in the African IT sector, Mr. Hiruy Amanuel describes his endeavor to help other founders execute effective marketing strategies. Recently, the market has placed a considerable focus on companies’ abilities to create original content. Even Netflix has injected a budget of around $1.5 billion to invest in original programming and content. This strategy was proven successful and brought in significantly more revenue when the company hit all-time streaming high. Gebeya understands the industry and the vast potential behind innovation and creativity. The new production studio will meet the demands for authentic and cohesive content creation as well as brand building on an international scale with the development and merchandising of original multimedia products.
