Director “Lords of Salem”, “31”
Working with a majority of script supervisor is never much fun. Most of the time I find them to be quite dry and boring. The problem is you have to sit next to this person for 14 to 18 hours at a time on some days, so this working relationship can make you a little crazy at times. Renetta Amador is the first scripty I’ve worked with that has found a way to be fun and personable, yet always keep a keen professional eye on her work. I would highly recommend her to any director.
“Selma”, “I Will Follow”, “Queen Sugar”
A quick word of HIGH praise for script supervisor, Renetta Amador. SELMA is my second film with her and I pray she’s available for all the rest to come. An amazing collaborator and protector of the vision.
Director “Dope”, “Confirmation”, “Our Family Wedding”
I’ve known and worked with Renetta for many years. She is a friend and a filmmaker. I use neither of those words lightly. There is no one I trust more , or would want on my side during the craziness that is film production. We’ve been through some exciting, fun, and challenging circumstances together. Through it all Renetta has always maintained her humor, professionalism, honesty and talent. See you on the next adventure!
Director “The Hungover Games”
Unfortunately, I am unable to recommend Renetta Amador as a script supervisor. She was incredibly proficient at her job. Despite having a shoot with sweeping fight scene, green screen days and dangerous stunt work… she not only helped me stay on schedule, on budget and on point, but I can’t remember ONE continuity issue in post. I blame her. Renetta knows how to take a joke… and deliver one. She knows when to pipe up. She knows when to blend. She was a dream to work with. The ONLY reason I canNOT recommend Renetta, and would STRONGLY discouraging you from hiring her, is that I’m afraid she’ll be working on YOUR film when I need her working on MINE.
ACE, Editor “(500) Days of Summer”
I worked with Renetta on the 500 Days of Summer. Her notes were accurate and concise. She is super nice and has a very good eye for matching and camera lines.i look forward to working with her again soon!
It’s obvious that a script supervisor needs to be meticulous, but how amazing would it be if they were just an awesome human being as well? Renetta is more than awesome. Besides going above and beyond to insure there’s continuity, she has a calming demeanor that just works well on set. When she speaks, it’s clear you should listen. Renetta knows how to keep everyone focused and happy in the process. She’s a rare individual and an asset to any production.
