ShutteRelease is a dba operating in North Carolina. It encapulates the visual creative side of Chris Laforet, an accomplished photographer and recent convert to filmmaking. ShutteRelease’s primary focus is documentary production, primarily on themes centered in the Piedmont area of NC. Having established the brand in 2011, Chris has learned many of the roles of the filmmaker. His first documentary Carousel was a breakout hit among many. With the release of the full-length documentary The Regulators, Chris has proven that he can bring a classic and timeless filmic vision to his work. In 2016, we released a documentary short titledHealed by Horses, brings awareness of how equine programs can help people suffering with emotional trauma like PTSD, physical challenges, stress, and behavioral issues to overcome them. Our current project is “draggin’ Fairchild” which documents the life and times surrounding the first organized drag races in the Eastern United States.
