“Rosie’s Rescue” to Begin Filming October 7
Cast includes Movie and Theatre Veterans for Film Shoot in Henry County
NEW CASTLE, INDIANA —When the cameras roll in New Castle next week, there will be over 30 cast and crew members on set for the making of a new short film, “Rosie’s Rescue.” The story follows Rosie, a young woman in crisis who embarks on a quest to find the mysterious man who saved her life as a child.
The cast members are all seasoned veterans of stage and screen, with acting experience that covers everything from movies to New York theatre to major national tours. They include Tia Link, Eric Olson, Sherryl Despres, Molly Garner, and Charity Dehmer. Youngsters Addy Farrell and Allie Stacy round out the cast.
Terry Weston Marsh, the writer and director of the film, says credit for the outstanding lineup goes to Scott Allen Tucker, owner of the Indianapolis-based Talent Fusion agency, who casts a wide net when trying to find the perfect actor for each part. Tucker is an actor himself who brings insider knowledge to his job as casting director.
Link, who performed in no less than a half-dozen films last year, is looking forward to the challenge of playing the title role of “Rosie’s Rescue.” “Rosie is a young woman who survived a difficult childhood only to be plunged into her biggest crisis yet,” says Link, who relocated from New York to Indianapolis. “My goal is to bring the audience along on Rosie’s journey so they can share in the self-discoveries she makes.”
Will Rosie find the answers she so desperately seeks? Link won’t reveal any plot twists, but she says, “I can tell you that there are some surprises along the way, and I think you’ll find the film is ultimately very moving and inspiring.”
The film will be shot entirely on location. “When we started looking for the best places to film, we realized that Henry County had everything we needed,” says director Terry Marsh, himself a Henry County resident. “Everyone who is allowing us to use their house or building as a film set has gone out of their way to be helpful.” Sets will include places in downtown New Castle as well as rural homes and historical landmarks. The production company, Octave Films, will be patronizing area restaurants, hotels, catering, and other businesses.
Principal photography begins October 7 of this year and should take about a week. Following post-production, the family-friendly film should be ready in spring 2020.
