- of the rad variety -

PartyHat Productions has been rooted in collaboration, stylistic quality, and sheer entertainment value since its genesis as a small comedy group in 2007.  Once founded as a legitimate company eight years later by producer/director Daniel E. Martin, these philosophies remain intact at the core of every project.

Whether it's an experimental music video, one-off short, or six-hour live stream, we give our all to make it as awesome as possible.

Let's create something Rad together.

Daniel E. Martin

Founding Member & Head of Production


Producer-Director-Shooter-Editor in Chief.  Certified Precision Driver.

Daniel has been enthralled by all manner of films for the majority of his life, and has dedicated the past decade to studying the craft of storytelling through media - becoming an award-winning filmmaker, award-nominated screenwriter, capable freelancer, post-production specialist, and radical dude.
