Who We Are

Playdate is a group of artists making sounds for pictures.

We compose, craft, and curate music and sound for animation, motion design, documentary and commercial live action—providing expertise and audio post-production services from downbeat to delivery. We understand our clients’ creative and commercial goals, and love developing briefs into collaborative, world-class work.

Playdate is born from the collaboration between Creative Director, Ryland Haggis, and award-winning animation studio, Giant Ant, where Ryland delivered music and sound design for over 300 projects as in-house composer/producer for music & sound.

We’re good at explaining what we do, why we’re doing it, and what it means for our clients’ timelines and budgets.

So let’s set it up. Let’s play.

Why We're Different

Commissioning and, more specifically, licensing music can feel like a scary, confusing black hole. With our background on the commissioning side, we understand that, and have made it our mission to great work that is fairly and transparently priced.
