Marcus Palmer has been directing since 2006 adapting his scriptwriting 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 four years on the award winning ‘MasterChef’, where Marcus traveled internationally coordinating multiple camera crews in Melbourne and Singapore. Marcus directed four seasons of the hugely successful TV2 show ‘Just the Job’
In 2012 Marcus's 20 minute drama ‘A New Song’ received excellent audience reviews at the Wairoa Maori Film Festival.
The same year Marcus directed the intricately plotted documentary about the turbulent life of iconic kiwi pop-rockers ‘The Exponents’ for PRIME television. It received The NZ Heralds, pick of the week.
He continues to apply his strong storytelling ability while field directing high profile shows such as ‘New Zealand’s Got Talent’ and Story Producing for 'MasterChef NZ' for TV ONE.
The Bat Country music video is done and I'm stoked with it.
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".
