Mikey Kay tells brother's autism story through film
How do you make the viewer empower the person and focus on the positive of that person?

You'll recognise Mikey Kay as Good Morning Britain's security expert - but today he joined us to share a personal and moving story of strength against the odds.
Mikey's older brother Spencer has severe autism and has had around-the-clock care since he was born. His mother literally looked after him until the day she died.
"On the morning that she passed away, she got up, she bathed him, she washed him, she washed his sheets then she went back to bed and she passed away," Mikey told Susanna and Ben on Thursday's Good Morning Britain.
Spencer, 45, is unable to dress, wash or feed himself - but has found a release through incredible physical strength discovered over years of hiking. Accordingly, Mikey has made a special film called The Walk to tell his brother's story.
On making the documentary, Mikey said: "How do you make the viewer not feel sorry for that person? How do you make the viewer empower the person and focus on the positive of that person?"
