Stephan Calitz is currently Head of the Film School at Open Window, a prestigious Private Higher Education Institution in Centurion. Stephan also lectures 3D Animation and Game Design, while remaining active in the industry. After working as a 3D Artist and Animation Director for several years, he started his own company in 2010 called Contentbox, successfully completing hundreds of projects ranging from commercial and corporate animations to e-learning applications. An award-winning artist and accomplished lecturer, after almost a decade of schooling the latest generation of South African animators, he is now exploring new challenges in the rapidly expanding indie-games industry. “Applying Game Design techniques to non-game environments made me realise the immense power and responsibility associated with such a highly influential medium. I’m an outright supporter of well-designed gamification, for the sake of a better future.”
