Vexatious Films

is an exciting new venture from long-time collaborators Rebecca Thomson and Claire d'Este. We love high concept films and comedy, and what the female perspective can bring to genre film.  Our previous films together have screened at international film festivals, won numerous awards, been broadcast, and distributed on iTunes and Amazon.

Rebecca Thomson
Rebecca is a writer, director, producer, and most recently has been loving shooting and editing too. Rebecca has directed ten short films and is a co-creator on the successful web series Women Of The Island. Rebecca also runs a highly exclusive film festival in her own backyard.
Claire d'Este
As well as being an award-winning screenwriter of 7 produced short films and one broadcast TV episode, Claire has a PhD in artificial intelligence and robotics. Her unique background brings something a little peculiar to everything she touches.



Sisters Unearthly

Sisters Unearthly is a fantasy web series for adults who love fairytales as they were intended - dark, dangerous and delicious. Set in a visually stylised, grotesque, and humorous world without man or machine the stories unfold against the spectacular natural landscapes of Tasmania.


Each episode is a stand alone story but bound by the theme of bringing forth life in an unearthly realm where hair is a powerful commodity, little girls vomit up golden hearts, and narrators sometimes lose control of their stories.

Currently in development.

Review of I Am Undone

November 08, 2017

It's nice when a reviewer gets your project! A review from Dread Central of I Am Undone Volume 1 includes a shoutout for I Am Undone.

'This one is bizarre. It does everything required in order to get across its message, almost obnoxiously so, but I think the end result is just what it needed to be. Over-the-top, gross and appropriately preachy, this one made me squirm uncomfortably several times. It could have used a few more in-camera effects, but with the budget they were probably working with, it’s hard to fault them too much for that. 4 out of 5.'

Crocheted Cthurkey Pattern

December 20, 2018

The turkey is based on Allison Hoffman's Amigurumi Thanksgiving Turkey. Thanks, Allison! First go make one of those, but don't close off the body.

Tentacles (make 3)

  1. Make a magic ring

  2. Crochet 5 into the ring

  3. Single crochet around until your tentacles are of your desired length.

  4. Stuff and insert wire for ultimate posability

Crab legs (make 8 or 6 if you get bored)

  1. Chain 17

  2. Skip first chain and single crochet into chain

  3. HDC 3, SC, slip stitch

  4. SC, HDC 3, SC, slip stitch

  5. SC HDC, DC 3

  6. Stitch up the sides a bit to make them a bit rounder

  7. Probably should have put some wire in these too

Stitch parts onto other parts and stuff those tentacles in.
