ShutteRelease Films is a TV and Movie production house operating in the heart of North Carolina. Founded in 2014 by Chris Laforet, its production output focused on several documentaries. Its principal is Chris Laforet who has been involved in photography since the early 1980’s. He is assisted by his daughter, Bekah, and wife, Sherry, and on occasion by other talented filmmakers in the Piedmont Triad area.
