The Gala Grand Opening video was great — it got a standing ovation! To bring you on as our scriptwriter was perhaps the best decision we made.

Since 1983, Renne Leatto has written dozens of programs for our video collection, for several different markets. Regardless of the target audience or complexity of the subject area, she has brought the same thoroughness and insight to every project. She does intensive research and becomes an expert on the topic, identifying the information important for our audience to know, then communicating it succinctly and compellingly — while entertaining at the same time. The Sexual Harassment Series and Workplace Violence Series she created for us have been among our all-time bestselling titles.

Working with Renne as the writer for my national television directorial debut was a gift!
Her research is thorough, her passion for telling a story and making it great is unsurpassed. I credit my subsequent deal to direct four more episodes in the same series to my collaboration with
Renne.

SeaWorld Sensations, written and directed by Renne Leatto and Lee Sommie, has been by far the most popular and best-selling theme park souvenir video ever produced for SeaWorld of Florida.

Vice President of Merchandise
SeaWorld of Florida

Renne Leatto is one of those well-rounded, imaginative all-stars that any media manager would crave. In my 20 years of TV production experience, I have rarely encountered someone with the natural instinct Renne has for making the right choices in scriptwriting and production.
Renne has an incredible gift for looking beyond the obvious that others see and finding a better, more effective, more entertaining way of communicating. She was instrumental in the success of Shamu TV, an Emmy Award winning children’s television series I produced, which would not have been the same without Renne’s dedication to quality. Renne is also a voracious researcher with a huge knowledge base of many different topics, from rodeos to planting trees to penguin mating habits. But as if all this wasn’t enough, Renne is also a fun person to work with. She’s funny, intelligent, personable, opinionated, level-headed, and well-liked by production crews. I have no hesitation trusting an entire project to Renne, knowing it is in good hands. She’s the real deal.

The City of Kissimmee could not be more pleased with the work i. karumbah provided. The final video is professional and informative and has received rave reviews from the Department of State, Bureau of Historic Preservation, and from our local community.

Whether it's designing a website, writing copy, or creating a script, i. karumbah never fails to deliver the goods. For creativity and dependability, all I can say is ... "ay karumbah!"

Renne converted our 36-segment basic outline into the scripts we needed for a video assessment, part of a management selection process. Not only were her scripts realistic and appropriate, but she delivered them on a very tight deadline. She took sensitive topics and communicated them so that observers would clearly understand the issues
and not be offended. Her work was
outstanding.

Training & Development Executive

Renne has written so many insightful and intriguing scripts and ancillary print pieces for Discovery Education and AIMS Multimedia that I sometimes feel that half of the AIMS catalog consists of her projects. Backed by her in-depth research skills, Renne's writing gets straight to the heart of any topic, succinctly explaining its educational content while entertaining her audience with an engaging wit. In addition to her writing skills, Renne has an exceptional talent as a producer. AIMS has utilized Renne several times in that role, and the videos she's turned out have invariably been delivered on budget, on time, and directly on target for our audience. If this sounds like a fan letter, it is. Renne's a terrific asset for any organization and a constant pleasure to work with. I always look forward to our next collaboration.

I’ve worked with Renne on multiple projects, usually with tight deadlines and demanding clients. Her professionalism and attention to detail help make challenging projects easier to accomplish — and always on time! She delivers well-honed, accurate copy....the perfect blend of creativity and substance!

— Linda Mount

Marketing Executive

During my many years as a producer of all types of media, I have never worked with another talent like Renne Leatto. Now there are pitfalls to working with such talent. Renne always strives like crazy for perfection in her writing and directing. Her work always needs to be great, and
great it is.

And, just for fun, we had to share this one ...

Renne and Lee, I just wanted to say how GREAT it was to work with you two directors on the TV pilot! We had a great shoot and I hope that I get the chance to work with you again!
