Sept. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- HIGH POINT, N.C., September 28, 2011 — Historical drama, Ocean Drive, which portrays the Carolinas’ coastal heritage in beach music and shag dancing, is set to begin filming spring 2012. OceanDriveMovie.com launched this month to begin promoting the movie and engage beach music enthusiasts. The website provides visitors with rare photographs and authentic sound clips from the film’s era.

Feature-length film, Ocean Drive, chronicles the journey of real-life legendary shag dancer, Chicken Hicks, in the 1940s and ‘50s as he and his compatriots play an integral role in introducing beach music to the masses despite racial boundaries. The film gets its title from the famous section of North Myrtle Beach, where some of the famous “juke joints,” or shag clubs, were established.
In addition to the heritage and scenic beauty associated with North and South Carolina’s coast, Brad Yoder, writer and producer of Ocean Drive, chose to film in the Carolina’s because of his personal experiences. “Carolinians have created a very warm, welcoming culture,” says Yoder, who grew up in High Point, N.C. “The folks here get excited about shooting a movie in this region, especially one that chronicles the life of a legendary resident and the state dance.”  

Yoder believes in giving back to his community and wants local investors to take pride in being part of a regional film. “As a result of filming in the Carolinas, we are stimulating the local economy by creating jobs, feeding into the tax base and providing tourism dollars to the areas in which we shoot,” says Yoder.
