With mental health very much at the forefront of people’s minds as we exit the Covid 19 pandemic, a new short film is gearing up to highlight both the pain and the positive outcomes that are possible when help is sought.

 

The Long Walk is a psychological drama based on one person’s truth. A young boy suffers a trauma and then is catapulted into a world of psychosis. During a particular psychotic episode, he loses touch with reality and finds himself on a Long Walk across London. Experiences of mental health to the good is the basis of this film.

Many might not feel positive about a film about mental health, and may choose to shy away from it. But this is a positive film.  It is uplifting, thought provoking, dramatic and engaging.  The message it hopes to deliver is -REACH OUT, DON’T STAY SILENT, ASK FOR HELP

So why is this film so relevant now? Because more and more people are struggling with mental health issues and with scant resources available it can be hard to believe that reaching out to get help can actually work. It is important for people to know that help can be sought. It is hoped the film will raise awareness of what people’s mental health experiences can be like, whilst at the same time reaching out to those who need to be reached, for people to know its ok to not be ok, and its ok to open up and talk about things

Already assigned to the film are award winning director Richard Kattah, CEO of the production company Little Drops Production, and award winning writer and director/producer Monet Morgan. The art director is Alex Larusso.

 

Executive Producers Leigh Trifari (actress and producer) and Andrew Alton-Read (actor, producer, director, voice-over artist, radio presenter) are now reaching out to people to get involved. With an already fantastic team in place, the film needs further funding to do the project justice. The funding needed is going to be raised via crowdfunding and there are plenty of ways people can get involved in raising funds.

Crowdfunding will be live from 29 June - 30 July 2021 on Greenlit.com.
