Seiko Films is a Philippine film company owned and run by Robbie Tan.[1] Nowadays, Seiko Films is known for bold film in the late 1990s.

History

Seiko Films made its initial offering in 1984 with the zany trio of Tito, Vic and Joey starring in "Goodah!" Since then, after the People Power revolution, Seiko Films has fast become one of the major film productions in the late 1980s, alongside with Monteverde's Regal Films and Del Rosario's Viva Films. The film production is also home to its homegrown stars, mostly Regal babies like Romnick Sarmenta, Sheryl Cruz, Rey PJ Abellana and Gretchen Barretto as well as talents inside Seiko like Jestoni Alarcon, Cesar Montano and Rita Avila. Seiko Films was known for its tagline-"If it's from Seiko, it must be good"-used in 1989 to 1994.

However,in the early 1990s saw a dwindle in the film production. After years of providing quality entertainment, Seiko Films ventured into ST (sex trip) production in 1995, particularly the ones with Rosanna Roces, Priscilla Almeda and Natasha Ledesma. Despite the pornographic scenes, Seiko's movies made Rosanna Roces a popular sex symbol.

In 2003, Seiko films slowly turned from very graphic bold to a little bit wholesome, even though still producing sex-oriented films. "Liberated" series, directed by Mac Alejandre, became those of the most important films in the history of Seiko. Seiko produced movies lately like "Bridal Shower" (2003), the mock documentary "Bikini Open" (2005), the family comedy "I Wanna Be Happy" (2006) and the psycho-erotic thriller "Silip" (2007). Seiko Films also co-produced the award-winning film "Foster Child" (2007) by director Brilliante Mendoza.

Seiko Films is in hiatus as of this time.
