Long Story Short Actor Rafe Spall Interview – The Speed of Time, Australian Filmmaking, and Pandemic Stress


Oscar nominee Josh Lawson’s new Australian drama/comedy, Long Story Short, features Rafe Spall, Zahra Newman, and Noni Hazelhurst, and follows Teddy, a man who suddenly starts jumping forward a year of his life every few minutes. It’s an emotional film that feels appropriate for the time we find ourselves in.

Andrew caught up with actor Rafe Spall to talk about the making of the film, his creative choices in a pandemic world, and what he wants to do as an actor.

Long Story Short comes out on February 11th in Australia and deserves to be seen by all.
