The Long Walk – Producers Andrew Alton-Read & Leigh Trifari to shoot uplifting short film that spotlights mental health in Essex

On Friday’s Drive we were joined by Executive Producers Andrew Alton-Read & Leigh Trifari to chat about a short story with a long reach, The Long Walk. Based on a true story, this uplifting and thought-provoking psychological drama part-filmed in Essex puts mental health in the spotlight and is currently in pre-production. Andrew & Leigh talked to us about the short film and how we can all be a part of supporting their crowdfunding campaign. From one-to-one mentoring sessions to signed posters and shoutouts on Facebook, there are all sorts of perks available and more information about the crowdfunding campaign for The Long Walk can be found at Andrew also spoke about his own experiences of mental health, using those experiences as an actor and a few tips for better mental health.
