Director's statement

Creator's Statement

GLORIA TALKS FUNNY is the story of a woman looking for happiness and fulfillment in her career and struggling to find it. This idea originally came from a place of frustration, not just in my own life, but from the lives of many females in the entertainment industry. I met Candi Milo in 2014 when we worked on a short film together. She has voiced some of my favorite cartoons, and her stories about the industry were both hilarious and disheartening. I quickly realized that her experiences of backlash and rejection based on her gender and age were endless. I felt compelled to bring her stories to life in my senior thesis film at Chapman University.
