Christchurch City Info

Your Christchurch City manager is Alexander Jones (A.J)

Alexander Jones


What's up, my name is Alexander Jones (but we're friends so you can call me AJ). I'm a Christchurch 48Hours veteran, having competed 8 times and achieved various levels of success in the competition.

HP48Hours is the best weekend of the year, it's better than Christmas, and it's my job to make sure it continues to be this way, for you.

My old team, Les Cousins Dangereux has been runner-up in Christchurch twice and was a Peter Jackson wildcard in the National Finals last year, also you may recognise my voice from the HP48Hour videos and podcasts.

I'm new, still fresh-faced and wet behind the ears, but I'm very excited to finally be a part of the competition that has inspired me and helped me to become not only a relatively competent filmmaker but a better person.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have!
