Harlem, NY - January 5th, 2021. Happy New Year! After many months of hard work and dedication from our team at Deaf Talent® Media & Entertainment Consulting, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new website!

Our primary goal is to collaborate 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.

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.

The Deaf Talent Movement, founded by the first Black Deaf Filmmaker/Activist, Jade
 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 TalentTM Media & Entertainment Consulting is a natural evolvement of that movement. Deaf TalentTM is a cultural icon. #DeafTalent® is a registered trademark of Jade Films and Entertainment.

“As a Black Deaf Filmmaker/TV Creator, Advocate of Diversity & Inclusion, Acting Instructor, & Creator/Owner of #DeafTalent® campaign, I believe in change. It shouldn’t be that difficult to cast the right person for the role. More and more Deaf Talent® who are BIPOC (BlackIndigenous, and People of Color) are thriving and appearing in gaming content, film, and on television. Our ongoing movement is proof of that,” said Jade Bryan, founder of Deaf TalentTM Media & Entertainment Consulting.

We hope you enjoy our new look! Be sure to check out our brand from our online store! For more information on Deaf TalentTM Media & Entertainment Consulting and to view the website, please visit
