In 1998, Erin Wyatt joined the company, and after a few years was working as an editor.

The company has since moved into exploring social media marketing and creative content for companies such as Netflix and Amazon., Seismic Productions has garnered dozens of nominations and awards, including two Clio Awards for their work on American Sniper and American Ultra, and numerous Golden Trailer Awards, including the Best Drama TV Spot Award for American Sniper., In November 2016, Seismic's trailer for Beauty and the Beast broke the record for most views in 24 hours with 127.6 million views.
