Columbia, S.C, (WOLO) -- The South Carolina Film Commission unveils a new mobile filmography app to attract movie executives and also the average movie buff.
More than 100 feature films and 70+ TV movies, series, and pilots have been produced in South Carolina. Now, a new smart phone app lists all those projects shot in the Palmetto State during the past 100 years, with the hope of adding more box office hits to the state's resume.
"The iconic scene [in Forrest Gump] was shot on a bench in Savannah in five days, but the majority was shot in South Carolina," said Tom Clark with the SC Film Commission. "Who knew?"

CBS spent nearly $18 million in South Carolina last year filming the Lowcountry-based television series Reckless, according to the S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism.
Charleston was home to the show’s pilot, which was filmed in February and March 2013, and first season, which was filmed from July through December. In that time, more than 860 jobs were created, including 90 temporary positions for police, firefighters and extras, the department said.
The show’s cast and crew purchased goods and services at more than 835 suppliers and generated 17,300 lodging nights in the Charleston area, according to the department.
Reckless, the legal drama starring Cam Gigandet and Anna Wood along with Michael Gladis, Georgina Haig, Gregory Harrison, Shawn Hatosy and Kim Wayans, currently airs at 10 p.m. Sundays on CBS.
TV cameras were also rolling north of Charleston recently.
Golf Channel filmed Big Break Myrtle Beach in June at Pawleys Plantation on Pawleys Island and at Barefoot Resort’sDye, Fazio and Love golf courses.
