About Pacific Daylight Films

Pacific Daylight is a full-service production company, creating feature films, television, animation and immersive/experiential content.


Great content starts with great storytelling. Around the world, we help organizations craft real stories and bring them to life through top-tier production. Our goal is always to nudge our audiences towards hope.

PDL started as an improv comedy troupe named "HappyFunTime." As we created our own films and experiential content, companies began to ask us to help them tell their stories. Eventually, it became clear that "HappyFunTime Industries" didn't fit our mission anymore. So we picked a name that was hopeful and forward-thinking like us: Pacific Daylight Films.

PDL founder Wes Halula has produced award-winning content for Disney, DreamWorks, Sony Pictures, Lionsgate, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Compassion International, Discovery Education and many more.
