The eight major Hollywood studios can no longer develop in-house enough cost effective quality movies to feed their "distribution pipeline" for theaters, cable, and video/DVD. Seattle Film Group's business is to supply first-rate films to the major studios and engage in co-ventures with the largest independent production companies.

The development company works closely with the marketing departments of the nine major U.S. studios and the marketing departments of the top seven foreign territory distributors in developing these movies. This creates a business collaboration that assures each pictures maturing in the global markets over several months preceding its production, and just as important almost guarantees each film the major distribution that is so essential for profitability.
