The Story Behind Carhartt Hand Made Films
Three years ago, actor-director Jason Momoa relentlessly banged his barrel fists on the doors of Carhartt’s Creative Director Brian Bennett. Bennett finally agreed to meet with Momoa to hear his idea, but since he thought the big dude sounded a little nuts, he dragged his producer Chris Robinson along for some ‘backup.’
They all met at a bar in Detroit called Two James. After trying a fresh batch of absinthe and several whiskeys, some high-fives and head-butts, they quickly formed a brother-like bond, thanks to their blue-collar roots and love of the underdog. An agreement was made on a soggy cocktail napkin that was lost that night. A handshake later, Bennett and Robinson agreed to work with Jason and his production company, Pride of Gypsies, to help bring Jason’s story to life.
Several years, beers and adventures later, a short but mighty film was born. A film we love so much at Carhartt, we’ve decided to make more like it. So we formed a Production Company called Carhartt Hand Made Films.
