The production of “When I Dream of Visiting Charleston, I Dream of…” is a documentary being written and produced by George Randy Bass and Lauren Cockrell.
The concept is to capture video and still images including aerial, as Lauren tours Charleston. Venues include historical locations, art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, scenic locations and places to stay while visiting Charleston. Some videos will include brief interviews of locals, other tourists, artists, business managers and owners.
Charleston has been my favorite destination for many years. I have met some outstanding people, eaten at some great restaurants and captured some of my favorite images at historic locations, amazing venues and some of the best art galleries and shops in North America!
Lauren and I am not alone in our love for all things Charleston. In 2019, Travel + Leisure Readers Ranked Charleston, SC the No. 1 destination in the U.S., for the 7th Year in a row? In 2016 Charleston was ranked #1 destination in the world!
Well deserved! When you consider everything, Charleston has to offer – charm filled community and people, amazing history, diverse culture, nationally recognized food, breathtaking scenery. Elegant homes, cobblestone streets, waterfront views, and an abundance of flowering window boxes add to the outstanding aura that is Charleston.
COVID-19 is a concern for all of us. We are honoring medical advisors’ recommendations to stay home and #flattenthatcurve. Despite the scheduling changes we are making very good progress. Developing our concept, identifying shoot locations, scheduling interviews, writing scripts and pre-shoot marketing.
Our current photography shoot date in Charleston is May 17th thru May 23rd, 2020. We will be capturing still images and videos. Including remarkable aerial videos and stills.
