‘It’s A Long Road Home’ is an animation centred around men and their mental health.

Amy wanted to normalise the topic of mental health and engage an audience in this difficult issue through the use of personal storytelling.

The animation set as a car journey because quite often the best conversations happen during car journeys, it’s a moment of privacy between two people, and there’s not much else to do but talk.

However, it can also be quite a solitary thing to drive alone at night which is why it was used as a metaphor for mental illness.
