Carmar Drive is an entertainment company founded in 2014 by Charles Whitfield. It is also the name of the street that he lived on as a kid in Laurel Canyon. Growing up in a family of athletes, including his father who was a former Major League Baseball player, Charles' interest was geared more towards the film industry, and a discovered passion for storytelling.
"During that time, in the '80s as a kid, living up in the Hollywood Hills, I started to immerse myself in the arts. My imagination just ran wild with all of these ideas and stories that I wanted to tell. That's where my journey as an artist began."

"I want to make films that tell new stories, but give you the feeling of nostalgia. I want you to feel a certain way. I want to move you."
