There’s a fire. You call for help. Who answers?
The vast majority of Americans live in places that don’t have a single firefighter on the payroll. “The Call” is a portrait of the volunteer fire service that steps up to answer this critical need, told in the unique voice of an animator who is also a volunteer firefighter.
Written, directed, animated, illustrated and narrated by Jonathan Weiss (surfacist.com)
Score and sound design by William Cusick (williamcusick.com)
Additional voice acting by:
J.J. Kaveny, Emergency Communications Dispatcher, Vermont State Police
Ronald Waite II, Captain, Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department
Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department, Pawlet, Vermont (pawletfire.org)
