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. In late 2007, Seiko was reportedly suspended by the MTRCB due to the prominence of the production of Sexual Oriented movies.

Seiko Films is in hiatus as of the moment.
