The Lowcountry Region

Between the world renowned cities of Charleston, SC and Savannah, Ga. lies an historic corridor of land still rich in the cultures of Early America, Mother Africa and the ante-bellum Old South.

Within this 4 county region is one of the worlds largest wetland
eco-systems, the ACE Basin, with over 200,00 acres protected by
a public/private partnership. 

Combine this with vast rural land, forests, plantations, small towns and beaches, it’s easy to see why feature films such as Forrest Gump, The Prince of Tides, The Big Chill, Something to Talk About, Ace Ventura; When Nature Calls, The Great Santini, Radio, and The Forces of Nature have all chosen this region as their primary filming location.
