Believing that small is beautiful, Open Palm are happy to create chamber epics, following Hamlet’s sharp advice. He warns not to overstep ‘the modesty of nature’. Nature is not bombastic, or sensational, nature is itself, and modestly so.
There is an old myth about the word sincerity. Old sculptors used to adulterate the materials they used with wax, and thus a pure piece of sculpture would be stamped ‘sine cera’, without wax. Truthful work is without wax, it is sincere.
Open Palm Films aim to be modest and sincere, to be light and funny, and to celebrate the tender power of truth.
