South Carolina Film Commission

SOUTH CAROLINA offers natural beauty, abundant resources, and an exceptional quality of life. We can supply your production with locations for filming that include mountains and the coast, rural settings and pristine waterways, modern urban environments, small-town storefronts, historic antebellum buildings, and sub-tropical jungles. This incredibly diverse state has been the backdrop for more than 100 feature films, 100+ TV movies, series and pilots, 500+ print ad and catalog shoots, and many other mediums going back to the Edison Company's “The Southerners” in 1914, Pathe Company's “How Could You Caroline?” in 1918 and Cecil B. DeMille's “Reap the Wild Wind” in 1941.

We're a business-friendly state that understands the importance behind the opportunities provided by every production. For the 12th consecutive year, South Carolina has earned a top spot in Area Development's “Top States for Doing Business” report. SC ranked No. 4 for our business environment.

We offer a cooperative state government coupled with a qualified crew base, providing the right conditions for productions to succeed. We're also one of the country's leading incentive states for feature films and television series. South Carolina's production incentives differ from other states' incentives in that they are a cash rebate, paid to the production company within 30 days of final audit. Other states offer tax credits or tax refunds which require brokers and long waiting periods.

Come discover the ideal place for your television and film projects in South Carolina and find out why we remain such an attractive choice for film, television and other media ventures.
