LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - Fiore Films, LLC, a leading independent production and entertainment company, today announced it has signed Savannah Schechter as a client and will manage all aspects of her career, including film, music, theatre and television.

"Savannah's ability to navigate between film, theatre, television and music gives her a versatility not often seen in such a young performer," said Marc Fiore, president and CEO of Fiore Films, LLC.
