Film Project targeting the Upstate of South Carolina

It's an exciting time for the beautiful state of South Carolina, and we are extremely pleased to know that our production will create new jobs in the area while stimulating the local economy by filming there, and ultimately basing our television drama series out of the Upstate of SC.  

OrionStar Productions will be filming in the counties of Greenville, Oconee and Pickens, including the Keowee and Cliffs Communities.  These communities will become known as the fictional town of "MORNINGSIDE" in the television series of the same name. 

We are currently in pre-production in Los Angeles, California and we are poised to begin production as early as October 2013 on the pilot episode.   

We are ready for South Carolina...  Is South Carolina ready for Hollywood?   

We are offering some incredible incentive packages for everyone that would like to be a part of this great Television Pilot.  Please check out our incentives on the right side of the page.


Company Summary

About OrionStar Productions

OrionStar Productions is Film and Video Production company based in Los Angeles, CA.  

As natives of SC, born and raised in the upstate, we would like to join hands with Greenville, Keowee and The Cliffs communities as well as the entire state of SC as we move forward with bringing the television series "MORNINGSIDE" to SC.  Sure, we could film in Hollywood, CA or any other state for that matter, but our desire is to bring our production back to our home state.

Danielle Leslie, Creator / Writer

Danielle lives in the upstate of South Carolina and can be seen on stage participating in local theatre productions at the Greenville Little Theatre and Centre Stage in Greenville, SC.   Danielle began her journey and labor of love in 2008 with creating and writing the beautiful story of "MORNINGSIDE".  One very interesting and fun fact about Danielle is that she started writing short stories at the age of 8 and she often asked her young friends to act out the roles.  Danielle continued her writing through her school years and beyond.  Writing and acting are truly Danielle's passion.


The Budget

We hope to raise all of the funding needed to bring this production to our home state of SC.  However, if our funding goals are not met, we may have to use an alternate location and film the pilot in California. 


The Impact

Morningside… a fictional town set in the Southeastern United States. 

Morningside is the story of two wealthy, powerful & prestigious friends and their families, who reunite in their hometown after being away for decades. Each bring their troubles with them while guarding deep rooted secrets from their past, and things on the surface are not at all as they may seem.

Our team at OrionStar Productions has been working very hard to bring this story to life.  Our company is located in Los Angeles California, but our goal is to film the story in the beautiful state of South Carolina.

To do this, we need your help, and we would also love to give others an opportunity to become involved in the making of this wonderful Television Pilot.  For your donations, you will receive many great rewards, ranging from a special thanks on our website, an autographed picture or poster, a prop from the film, or all the way up to a chance to become an extra in the film, or an executive producer.  The rewards are listed to the right side of the screen.

We have assembled some of the finest actors and actresses from the Southeastern area, and we have one of the finest teams in place to get our production accomplished.

We could pitch our story to a Network or Studio, but then they would have control over where the project is filmed, who can work on the film, and also who is cast in the production. And there would be no rewards… We have built a dynamic cast already and we want to pitch a very strong package to the network.  And, with your help we can do just that!

If you have ever wanted to be a part of something really special, and a chance to possibly get a role in a Television Pilot or become a Producer, please consider helping us to get this production made.

We thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to seeing YOU…  in the movies…
