Critically-Acclaimed Boston Film Production

In 2001, filmmakers Aaron Howland and Seth Howland founded the production company 7 Fluid Oz. Productions LLP with the purpose of establishing it as a key player in the flourishing independent film movement here in the Boston, Massachusetts, area.

Since that time, 7 Fluid Oz.' film and video productions have been released on DVD, screened at over thirty-five film festivals across the globe, and featured on CNN, MSNBC, Entertainment Tonight, and Inside Edition.

Until recently, film production companies and video production companies in Boston would have struggled to stay afloat, but due to the recent establishment of the Massachusetts Film Tax Credit, 7 Fluid Oz. can offer premier film production and video production services to clients throughout the country.
