To unlock the "Slider" trophy in "The Bridge", you must complete Chapter IV-V "The Intersection" without walking (i.e. moving the professor with the left stick).
This is probably the toughest and certainly the most time consuming trophies in the game, so I advise you hold the controller in a way that ensures you are nowhere near the stick so that you don't waste your time.

You only need to be pressing RT for almost the entirety of this level.

Setup

Start off by getting the Professor into the corridor with the door by slowly pulling RT. Next you need to get the Professor near to the Vortex button (there's a Vortex symbol next to the button) but you also need to get the Menace into the Vortex before the Professor reaches the button. Pull RT slowly to achieve both of these events at once (rotate too fast and the Menace will skip straight past the Vortex and onto the key button, which we don't want.) Rotate a little more with RT to get the Professor onto the button -- the Menace needs to end up by the exit door. Keep rotating, faster this time, to put the Professor into the Vortex, then rotate further to get the Menace onto the Vortex button and free the Professor. Tweak the Professor left with LT so that he's resting in the corner at the bottom (incidentally, tweak LT around until the Professor is touching the Lantern to get a Wisp towards the Collector trophy).

Repeat the next steps

We're going to slowly spin the level for roughly five or six minutes now in order to change the distance between the Menace and the Professor. The end goal is to get Menace to be on the Vortex button while the Professor is falling through that space so that he can end up by the door while the Menace is by the Vortex button. In order to close the gap between the two, we're going to hold down RT firmly only while the Professor is sliding behind the veil, allowing the level to spin further during his transition.

Here's how we do it.

1. Rotate with RT slowly so that Menace goes to the door.
2. Now rotate RT a little more firmly to shoot the Professor off towards the Key button at the bottom of the screen, rather than into the Vortex.
3. Rotate slowly with RT to start the Professor's slide towards the Veil while Menace heads to the Vortex button. Ideally you want to be going as slow as possible to allow the Professor to be behind the Veil as long as possible, however you need to make sure that Menace doesn't ricochet off the button and into the Vortex. For the first few rounds you will be at a steeper incline, as time goes on you should be able to put the Professor on a slower slide to the Veil.
4. While the Professor is behind the veil, pull sharply on RT so that the level rotates further while the Professor maintains his course and speed. The Professor will end up back in the bottom corner.
5. Repeat steps 1-4.

Gradually you will start to notice that Menace will leave the Vortex button earlier and earlier in the rotation as you repeat these steps. You want to repeat them until you think that you can have Menace pressing the Vortex button down at the same time that the Professor is falling towards the Vortex area (Step 2 above). That way you can divert the Professor safely to the door while the Vortex button is down. Try and achieve this position with as few repeats of the above steps as possible so that you don't overshoot.

Completing the level

Once you have the Professor at the door, rotate with RT to put Menace back in the Vortex and the Professor on the Vortex button (so that Menace ends up in the corner opposite). Rotate slowly to put the Professor back by the door. Now pull firmly on RT to put Menace at the key button, allowing the Professor to exit.

This may take a few tries. If you think you have touched the left stick at any point quit out of the game entirely and try again; the game is a little glitchy about unlocking trophies on a second attempt if you haven't completely quit out of the game between attempts.

Here's a video to illustrate the process above from Radiotelegrafist. All credit to him for the video. I strongly recommend that you watch the video and read the above instructions -- I don't think you get a full understanding without both aspects.



Once you finish the level the trophy should unlock.
