Chronesthesia: A love letter to Wellington

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:39 pm on 21 July 2016

Hayden J Weal directed, edited and stars in his own first feature film, Chronesthesia, which was filmed over his weekends around Wellington over four months.

He made the film on zero budget with his friends who all work in the film industry, and it will premiere next Friday at the New Zealand International Film Festival.

Hayden was Martin Freeman's body double and stand in on The Hobbit, and so got a first hand view of making a big budget feature film. He joined Jesse in the studio to talk about his debut feature and the difficulties of making a film with no budget.
