Project Type: Short Film

About the Project
"Sarge" is a short film by award-winning writer/director Benjamin Dewhurst. It tells the tale of a veteran named Franklin Spencer, who lives in an assisted nursing facility and suffers from dementia. Despite being antagonized by fellow residents, a hateful janitor, and his own mind in the form of an old Army buddy, he acts with honor and kindness in his attempt to escape the facility for his granddaughter’s graduation.

Project Filming Dates: First Week of February 2016 (Indianapolis)

Casting Needs

SGT. FRANKLIN SPENCER – Caucasian, 80’s, male.  Once a war veteran now finds himself in a nursing home with beginning stages of dementia.  Tired face, disheveled hair, he’s seen a lot in his life.  Next to no dialogue, so must be able to use emotions and actions to tell a story.  (LEAD)

G.I. – Caucasian, 20’s, male. Handsome, but not a model. Confident. Brash. His presence demands attention. (LEAD)

NURSE MANDY, Any ethnicity, 40’s, female.  A pure heart that cares about her residents, but a no-nonsense lady who gets the job done. (SUPPORTING)

KODY – Any ethnicity, Late teens, male.  Slack jawed janitor who works at the nursing home.  Lazy, know-it-all, defiant, with a cruel side. (SUPPORTING)

MOE – Asian, 70’s, male.  Grumpy attitude because his family has put him in a nursing home. (SUPPORTING)

FLOYD – Any ethnicity, 70’s, male.  Another resident at the nursing home, who can also be a handful for the staff with his temperamental behavior. (SUPPORTING)

SUZY, Caucasian, late teens, female.  Granddaughter of Sarge, who is getting ready to graduate. Pretty.  Sweet, caring voice. (SUPPORTING)

DANETTE – Any ethnicity, 70’s, female.  A resident at the nursing home. (PRINCIPAL)

ACTIVITY DIRECTOR MARY – Any ethnicity, 40’s, female.  Upbeat and positive, but easily overwhelmed. (PRINCIPAL)
