Filming in Georgetown County

Georgetown County welcomes filming of movies, documentaries, TV shows, commercials and other projects. Not only does our area boast excellent weather, we also offer a diverse selection of locations, from gorgeous beaches and marshes, to cypress swamps, historic plantations and much more.

However, we do have rules in place for filming, particularly in residential areas, and a permit is required for any filming activity that involves a crew of more than three (news/press coverage and students engaged in school projects are exempt). An application for filming permit must be submitted a minimum of five business days prior to any intended filming activity. A permit fee of $200 is required for each application submitted.
