Untouched: Savannah’s Grittiness On the Big Screen

A newborn is found in a Tybee Island dumpster and the search begins for who’s responsible. Cue Untouched, the suspenseful drama inspired by a number of true stories recalled by Chip Lane, a Savannah native.

Lane certainly carries that contagious Savannah charm. After briefly speaking with the cast, you can feel the energy and love of this sweet city on the river. The feelings are palpable.

Shot entirely in Savannah and Tybee, the 80-minute film will premiere on the big screen at the Lucas Theatre on July 29, at 7 p.m.

Savannah locals will enjoy recognizing their beloved hot spots such as A-J’s Dockside Restaurant, River Street Inn and the law offices of Jackson & Schiavone. “They all opened up their hearts and doors,” says Lane.

Humble is a perfect word to describe the entire organization. The beautiful and bubbly LA actress, Jenn Gotzon, can barely stand still as she explains the joy in watching Lane fulfill a vision. Lane smiles in the presence of Lucas theatre, realizing that his name has finally graced the marquee: “It’s almost as if I got off the boat with Oglethorpe and never left.” He deserves this night.

Catch the flick’s one-night screening at the Lucas to find suspense, drama and a whole lot of local flavor.

Untouched stars Jenn Gotzon, (Alone Yet Not Alone, Frost Nixon), Simone Griffeth (Death Race 2000), Chelsea Cardwell (Banshee), Kwajalyn Brown (Drop Dead Diva), as well as Lane.

Sometimes Your Words Just Hypnotize Me

The word ‘hypnosis’ brings to mind a man in a cape swinging a gold pocket watch in front of your face. “You’re getting very sleepy,” he says. “When I snap my fingers…” And suddenly you’re a chicken and everyone is laughing.

Steve G. Jones, modern day hypnotist, is not a stage hypnotist. In fact, he’s a highly-sought-after hypnotist to the stars who has offices in Los Angeles, New York and Savannah. But he doesn’t mind that some do perform on stage.

The New Oyster Cult

When it comes to oysters, Savannah’s got a long history. In the early 1920s and 30s, the great state of Georgia was at its height when it comes to oyster farming, and 8 million pounds of oysters were pulled from Georgia waters.

Unfortunately, environmental issues have caused our oyster beds to be less healthy. With a want to replenish our oyster habitat, Georgia’s Oyster Restoration Project is turning the oyster franchise around. William Lattimore of the Coastal Conservation Association’s Savannah Chapter and David Denmark, director of the Oyster Shell Reef Initiative, are helping to create healthy oyster reefs in our waters.

Haunted Tourism

As one of America’s most haunted cities, Savannah boasts a rich and varied history. According to Hearse Ghost Tours guide Jackie Dahlquist, the city is practically built on gravesites. “ The middle of the [original] town is built on a Revolutionary War battleground, and before that, Savannah was a crossroads for the Indians long before the city was ever here, with one road going to Florida and the other going to Charleston.”

With such a past, its no wonder Savannah is drowning in spirits, and as owner of Bonaventure After Dark, Shannon Scott claims, we have our founder to thank for that. “General Oglethorpe was more than just a founder of Savannah,” he says. “He was a mystic of the highest rank and was up to opening doorways of consciousness and other dimensions.”
