ELEMENT 7 VALUES
Element 7 arrived in 2016 to provide Seattle with a fresh approach to corporate video production.
We saw a need for next level content, and wanted to inject original heart and cinematic creativity into the local marketplace. By creating video that could more effectively connect a brand to their audience emotionally, E7 began its journey.
From humble beginnings, Element 7 has expanded in size and in breadth. We're creating content in every genre of production from corporate to commercial, and from music videos to live events. Our eyes are set on the future still, and we are paving the way towards producing more narrative content for Seattle, and breaking open the possibilities of Virtual Reality.
Using award winning directors that connect personally with subjects we have a record of effectively elevating large brands through motivated storytelling.
At all times we are focusing on that connection.
Being a company that appreciates the entire Seattle community means we produce content for the people.
E7 has history with some of the city's most important non-profits and outreach projects.
Element 7 is a tool to empower individuals, and impactful video is the most compelling way to inspire change and support. We help to spread the good word on endeavors for a greener energy future, ensuring stable futures for children up for adoption, and breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
Inspiring change and support through compelling video production is what we love to do.
The local film market also needs all the support it can get, and we're committed to building it together.
Through partnerships with local universities, we train and assist budding creatives to find their footing in the industry. We donate rental equipment and studio space to select students, low-budget short films, and non-profits at no charge.
Home In The Pacific Northwest
Washington is a pristine state for video and film production, and we take full advantage of it.
With a wide variety of environments and locations, the scene is always set for a great shoot.
What keeps us refreshed is getting out on the trails, flying drones in the mountains, and sailing the Puget Sound.
Being from the Northwest, we also understand the climate. We shoot rain or shine and pack right to weather all the elements. It's in our name.
