OVERVIEW

Deaf Talent® Media & Entertainment Consulting, a division of Jade Films and Entertainment, LLC, is in a special position to help companies navigate through transformative change during this age of "representation matters." With hundreds of projects involved in parts of the entertainment ecosystem, we consult clients on accessibility and creative developments in the arenas of media, entertainment, and technology. Our roster holds  a deep wealth of knowledge of Deaf and Disabled experiences and viewpoints involving education, pop cultures, languages, such as American Sign Language and Black American Sign Language, (ASL & BASL), History, literature, design, space, art, fashion, music, and more. 

Deaf Talent® Media & Entertainment also collaborates with producers, writers, directors, and executives to ensure that our cultural representations with Deaf and Disabled characters, that their cultural representations, unique insights, storylines, and distinct points of view are multi-dimensional and authentic. When it comes to Hollywood storytelling, oftentimes, in film and television, we see on the screen that misrepresents and reinforces dangerous stereotypes of POC and Black Deaf characters. We provide a select array of auxiliary services. This is what we are here for and we look forward to partnering with changemakers within the media, entertainment, and technology industry.

BACKSTORY

                                        

The Deaf Talent® Movement, founded by the first Black Deaf Filmmaker/Activist, Jade Bryan in 2012, is a social and cultural force centralized on spreading awareness about the lack of authentic representation of Deaf BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in television and film. This movement started small through social media and on the streets, eventually permeating throughout both online and real-life platforms.

 

Deaf Talent® Media & Entertainment Consulting is a natural evolvement of that movement. Deaf Talent® is a cultural icon. #DeafTalent® is a registered trademark of Jade Films and Entertainment.

"Change only comes to those who join in and make things happen. Bystanders are like the corner guys, watching the day go by expecting change to happen for them." - Jade Bryan
