HIT AND RUN
Following a successful commercial and music video career, DAVID
into directing feature films in March of 2010 with the Showtime premiere of his
acclaimed documentary STRIPPED: Greg Friedler's Naked Las Vegas. Shot over two
years by Palmer himself, the film would become the 5th most watched documentary
in Showtime Platform history and set the blueprint for Palmer's unique directing
and shooting style.
In 2010, Palmer along with Dax Shepard collaborated as Primate Picture's
co-directors on the motion picture BROTHERS JUSTICE, a comedic parody about
Shepard making a decision to leave comedy to pursue his dream of becoming an
international Martial Arts star at any cost. Palmer's visual translation of
Shepard's screenplay with a documentary shooting style paired with Shepard's
vision behind the camera shined a light on the explosive improvisational skills
of Shepard, Tom Arnold and Nate Tuck as well as the those of the talented cast
of cameos, including Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Favreau. Tribeca
Films released BROTHERS JUSTICE in April of 2011.
In 2011, Palmer and Shepard teamed up again for their 2nd Primate Pictures
motion picture to co-direct, the romantic action comedy HIT & RUN. Starring
Shepard, Kristen Bell, Bradley Cooper, Kristin Chenoweth and Beau Bridges, HIT &
RUN is the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable
past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to
deliver his fiancĂ© (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime
job opportunity. Open Road will release the film theatrically nationwide on
August 24th, 2012.
David Palmer attended the Newhouse School for film at Syracuse University.

Toni Braxton, Lil Wayne, The Dandy Warhols, Mary J. Blige & Ja Rule. Palmer made
