Georgia has offered extensive tax credits for companies filming in Georgia and the result is Georgia now leads the nation in film production. Most film companies make their way to the Georgia coast eventually do to the unparalleled vistas offered by the largest eco system east of the Mississippi River. 15 beach front barrier islands make up the 90 mile Georgia coast and only 4 are accessible by roads.
You can go to the other 11 islands but only by boat. Inside the barrier islands are over a 1/2 million acres of marshlands, smaller islands, and winding waterways inhabited by the largest wildlife populations on the east coast. No wonder Hollywood has come to Georgia.
