Who are Seven?

We’re filmmakers and storytellers. We love the process, the craft and creative opportunities video gives us. We love working as a team too. Individually we all bring something to the table. Check out the team. But collectively we do so much more. Because we all believe in one simple principle.

Do great work and great things happen.

Great things, such as, delivering 810% ROI with a single expertly executed video.

Creating the highest ever engagement rates. Increasing followers beyond all expectations. And taking lead generation through the roof.

That’s what the right video, with the right team behind can do.

The office

We're located on an active airfield which used to be a former RAF Airbase. The site is also used for TV & Film Production with the plan for it to become the 'Pinewood of the North.' It is currently home to the ITV drama, Victoria. It's a unique place to visit, we're always happy to have clients come through to the office and have a look around!
