The good news about permits in South Carolina is that there are relatively few. Please call our office if you have any questions about which places require a special use permit. The few exceptions are:
- Within the corporate limits of the city or county of Charleston. Contact Ray Swagerty with the Charleston Cultural Affairs Office: (843) 724-7414, or our office for assistance: (803) 737-0490.
- Within federally owned properties such as federal forests, buildings or military installations. Contact the South Carolina Film Commission: (803) 737-0490.
- All productions are required to send an original copy of their Certificate of Insurance, for a minimum of $1,000,000, naming "The State of South Carolina and its Agents" as additionally insured.
