I will analyze a model for thin film nematics whose salient feature is that one elastic constant is much larger than the others. The goal is to understand how this extreme anisotropy in elastic constants affects the morphology of singular structures emerging in the limit where the width of domain walls and the core of vortices approaches zero.
