Born and raised in Northern California, Nate Tuck sold his first film, HAIRSHIRT, to Lionsgate Films in 2001. Tuck also acted in the film.
With the help of Quentin Tarantino, Tuck landed a co-producer title and a role opposite Billy Baldwin on the Japanese film SAKURA in 2004. It was Tuck’s first foray into producing overseas, and the experience would prove invaluable, as Tuck would go on to produce films and commercial projects in Afghanistan, Morocco, China and Vietnam.
Over the past three years, Tuck has been busy producing and appearing in several independent films, including BROTHER’S JUSTICE. He currently resides in Los Angeles and has offices at Palmer Productions, Inc. in Venice, CA.
David Palmer (director, cinematographer)
David Palmer has been directing in Hollywood for over a decade.
Palmer's directing career launched with music videos for such top talent as Juvenile, Nelly, Toni Braxton, Lil Wayne, The Dandy Warhols and Mary J. Blige & Ja Rule. His video work quickly became widely recognized for its stunning quality, vibrant style and unconventional production design as much as the dynamic range of talent who he collaborated with.
