DEAD – due for release 2020
In 2018, I directed my second feature film, DEAD.
It’s about a stoner who can see ghosts helping a dead cop solve a murder case.
It is due for release later this year.
DEEP – my first play
As of the 25th February, 2020, I have now written a play that has been performed.
DEEP is about Rebekah Poleman, an marine archaeologist who becomes untethered from her submarine during an expedition to find hopes of life after the Great Rise. Stranded with less than an hour’s oxygen remaining, Rebekah must navigate through a sleazy viperfish, an overly optimistic blobfish, an orgasmic cloud of bio-luminescent bacteria, a sassy trio of anglerfish, and a terrifying giant squid.
It premiered as part of Auckland’s FRINGE festival at the prestigious Q theatre.
Starring Natasha Bunkall as Rebekah Poleman and puppeteers Cole Jenkins, Jen Huang, Edwin Beats and Laura Trundle, DEEP’s development season was directed by Ryan Dulieu and co-presented by Proudly Asian Theatre.
Chronesthesia/Love and Time Travel (2016)
Chronesthesia (or Love and Time Travel in the U.S.) is Hayden’s first feature film, shot over weekends with Simeon Duncombe and edited on FCPX on a laptop while traveling Europe. It’s micro-budget feature filmmaking at its best, a smart story which has connected with audiences around the world.
