Biography

Rebecca is a Tasmanian based film writer/director and producer who has been working in the film sector for many years. She is an adventurous filmmaker with a bold and cheeky vision. 

Rebecca has directed eight short films, which have screened collectively at more than 80 film festivals worldwide and have won numerous awards along the way. These awards range from her cult hit CUPCAKE: A ZOMBIE LESBIAN MUSICAL, featuring such classic numbers as 'No Penis Between Us' and 'My Girlfriend Ate My Pussy....Literally!' to SLASHED, a film about women exploring their erotic fantasies via online sci-fi fan fiction and THE JELLY WRESTLER, a short film about a washed up female jelly wrestler trying to relive her glory days in the gelatine.

In 2010 Rebecca was chosen as a participant in the Screen Australia funded Raw Nerve Program, providing emerging filmmakers with the funds and mentoring to make a high quality short film. This resulted in the completion of her short film Slashed. In late 2012 Rebecca won the Holding Redlich National Pitch Competition, and the opportunity to attend the Cannes Film Festival 2013, with her pitch for the Zombie Lesbian Musical feature, where judge Stephen Garrett (Executive Producer Spooks, Life on Mars) described Rebecca's pitch as 'a tour de force of a pitch' and 'stunning'. The feature length version of the Zombie Lesbian Musical is currently in development with Rogan Brown as Producer and Martin Brown (Moulin Rouge, Romeo & Juliet) as Executive Producer.

Rebecca is also involved in a number of other projects including an all-female directed horror feature anthology currently in development with Unicorn Films and Maggie Miles, and she is also director/co-producer on ONCE UPON A PORNO, a feature film chosen to be developed as part of the Screen Australia/Screen Tasmania low budget feature lab Pitch Plot Produce. Rebecca is the Tasmanian Chapter Head of the Australian Directors Guild and, along with Briony Kidd, a Co-Founder of Stranger With My Face International Film Festival.
