Talking Cure

  • Talking Cure was an one-semester student project. All of the dialogue was improvised by members of comedy improv troupe Starla and sketch-comedy group Simple Town. The conversations were then edited down and structured to create a narrative.

    Directing the performances
    Editing all dialogue
    Storyboards
    Character designs
    Final animation
