Reel-Scout to Build South Carolina's iPhone App

In addition to the online location library and contact & project management system, the South Carolina Film Commission has also enlisted Reel-Scout to build a film location and crew iPhone app. This app will feature all South Carolina locations available for filming as well as all its local crew and support services companies.

With its natural beauty, abundant resources, and an exceptional quality of life, South Carolina is idea for filming. The state's locations for filming range from mountains to the coast,  fromrural settings and pristine waterways to modern, urban environments, from small-town storefronts, historic antebellum buildings to sub-tropical jungles.

South Carolina has been the backdrop for 100+ feature films and 70+ TV movies, series, and pilots. It's 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.

You can download the South Carolina Film Office App for free from iTunes.
