Marcus Palmer has been directing since 2006 adapting his screenwriting skills across television, documentary, and drama.
Marcus’s strong on-set abilities were forged from years on the front lines of film and television - including three years on the award winning ‘Master Chef’, where Marcus traveled internationally coordinating multiple camera crews in Melbourne and Singapore.
Marcus directed three seasons of the hugely successful TV2 show ‘Just the Job’ and is in post production of an incredible documentary titled ‘5100 Brides’, about a spectacular mass wedding in India.
His 20 minute drama ‘A New Song’ recently received excellent audience reviews at the Wairoa Maori Film Festival and he continues to apply his strong storytelling ability while shooting and field directing high profile shows like ‘New Zealand’s Got Talent’, and ‘Coastwatch’ for TV ONE.
Marcus continues to write drama and has cemented his passion for storytelling while in 2013 directing the intricately plotted documentary about the turbulent life of iconic kiwi pop-stars ‘The Exponents’ for PRIME television. The Exponents was the NZ herald's TV pick of the week and received a myriad of outstanding reviews.
Marcus will be involved in the up-coming 2014 MasterChef series.
The Exponents Documentary is NZ Herald's TV Pick of the week.
It screens as a Prime Rocks Special on Wednesday 22 May 2013 at 9.30pm.
I've been shooting with the new Sony F5. It has great functionality (big buttons) and all the tricks you'd expect from a high end camera.
The talent even remarked "That's a really cool camera. It's really big".
I said "Thanks".
The Bat Country music video is done and I'm stoked with it.
