About Us

Founded in January 2008 by Corbin Day and Ted Hope, Hammer to Nail is a website whose mission is to connect readers to the most ambitious viewing on the planet. With so many options at your disposal, it can be a debilitating task to decide what to watch. Which is why we’re here, to be a trusted curatorial voice in a sea of blurry static. While our year-end awards concentrate on American narrative features produced for one million dollars or less, we realize that great filmmaking comes in all shapes and sizes. Which is why at Hammer to Nail, if we love something, we write about it. We love watching great movies, and we think you should too!
