Technical Art Director
The Walt Disney Company
Megan Stifter is the Technical Art Director for the Real-time team at Disney Television Animation. She began her career as an artist in feature animation where she worked on a number of award winning films at both Pixar Animation Studios and PDI/Dreamworks Animation. Always drawn to the technology side of this creative industry, she has worked throughout her career to prototype new workflows and make technology more accessible to classically trained artists. With the advent of immersive storytelling, Megan shifted towards the technology sector, working at several companies including Oculus Story Studio, Facebook, and Autodesk, to help pioneer VR storytelling. Now at Disney she is bringing that passion for innovation where she hopes to continue to push the boundaries of storytelling and bring interactive narratives to a wider audience.
