the new short film by writer/director/actress, Nathalie Boltt

A blinged babe goes below the belt to take revenge on her binge-drinking boyfriend.

the Dream

To make a wickedly fun but tastefully shot sketch that pops up on your screen, has you tossing your head back with laughter (possibly spraying coffee from your nose) and making your day. There are people out there who need to know that gut-bustingly funny, smart and sassy women, exist. We do....and we live amongst you!
Vajazzle is a showcase for these crazy kids. We need more stories that explore the freaky side of the female mind. Would Lena Dunham, Kristen Wiig, Diablo Cody and Madeleine Sami get a buzz out of Vajazzle the movie? Uh Yuh-uh!. Will Ferrell? Judd Apatow? Taika Waititi? I'll say! John Key? Ummm... no.
So! Can we all just be ridiculous and utterly irreverent for 5 minutes? That's how short and sweet Vajazzle is going to be. Yup, a flash of dark genius that might just save you from an early and grumpy death.

the Story

Charlotte has everything planned. She's gone through the pain of de-fluffing her nether regions, then vajazzling her vajay-jay, so as to inspire some extra special sexy time with her man on their anniversary. Not only that, she's preparing his favourite meal – just like Mama used to make it. But clearly Dave is oblivious to how good he's got it. He's gone on the rampage at the pub and is getting down with the boys. When Charlotte finds out, she's furious. Not furious enough to let a good night die, though. She's called a girlfriend and plans to have her own night on the town. But not before she's combined the key ingredients of Dave's anniversary surprise in a revenge recipe that will leave him feeling both warm and fuzzy.

Nathalie Boltt


Nathalie knows a lot about revenge vajazzling filmmaking. She's best known for her roles in front of the camera in blockbusters like District 9 and Doomsday, and on NZ and international TV in Step Dave, Bloodlines and Inspector George Gently, to name a few. But she's also a deft hand behind the camera. Her debut short film, The Silk, co-directed with Clare Burgess, won a whole bunch of festival awards. Now it's time for a bit of a comedic turn. But be warned! This isn't Aunt Violet's sense of humour.
Aline Tran

Aline Tran

Director of Photography

Cinematographer, Aline, has captured the breathtaking imagery in NZ films like Existence and The Red House, along with a slew of snappy shorts. She's no stranger to massive movie sets, and has recently finished an epic stint as stereographer on the Hobbit trilogy. Her eye for detail and technical rigour will ensure that no flu-flu shot is (unintentionally) fluffed.
Gabrielle Stevenson

Gabby Stevenson

Production Designer

Gabrielle Stevenson oozes fabulousness from every pore of her stylish self. She has an outrageously good eye for all things design and has displayed her cutting-edge costumier skills on such awe-inspiring projects as Peter Jackson's The Hobbit and the Emmy award winning Reservoir Hill. She headed the costume department on the hit TV series Girl vs Boy for three glorious seasons and is in constant demand on commercial and photography sets. But we've got her now. Oh yes, she's going to bling this thing.

Yes, Philip is Nathalie's partner - but he assures us this is not an auto-biographical work. Perhaps a little too emphatically.
