Making the Call
Making the Call is a short film that follows the contemporary story of Lieutenant Jeanette Lee, an ambitious newly promoted Emergency Medical Technician, and Major Frank Wilson, a veteran EMT and her boss at a rural North Carolina EMS Station.
Making the Call takes place over the course of 1 day in which Lieutenant Lee and Major Wilson respond to an emergency call to assist Isabel Yates, an elderly patient who has fallen in a parking lot near to her car. This film explores the challenges that confront EMT’s when treating elderly patients and the realities older adults must face when driving automobiles.

The first female to get hired at this particular EMS facility. Moved back home to live next door to her grandmother. Just returned from a national conference focused on new regulations. Determined to succeed, sometimes to a fault.
Frank Wilson [Caucasian] Mid 50’s yo. EMS Major, a seasoned veteran. A few pounds overweight. Already eligible for retirement, but loves his job too much to consider doing anything else.

Isabel Wright [Any ethnicity] 60-70’s yo. Retired distinguished K-12 teacher. Resides in older adult retirement community, insists on driving herself for local errands despite her challenges with memory and cognition.
