Leading production company JAM TV to produce Australian Deaf Games Coverage

Deaf Sports Australia and the Games Organising Committee are excited to announce the appointment of a new production partner, JAM TV for the coverage of the Australian Deaf Games. JAM TV is Australia’s largest independent producer of sport and entertainment, delivering well in excess of a 1000 hours of content every year to free to air, subscription broadcasters and international streaming services. JAM TV will produce the games coverage, going above and beyond to ensure the stories from the Games are shared wide and with inclusion and impact.

The production partnership with JAM TV is underpinned with sponsorship from leading sports broadcaster FOX SPORTS, to support the media and broadcast coverage of the Games. Fox Sports’ financial investment will support the costs of the video production of the Games including social content and broadcast packages. JAM TV will generously extend the resourcing of the production with additional pro bono supports.

JAM TV will be on the ground for the Games, under the skilled leadership of Executive Producer Jarvis Hunder, coordinating a production team including two emerging deaf filmmakers, Jack Small and Nick Bruce. Jack and Nick will be employed by Bus Stop Film’s (BSF) through their Bus Stop Employment service.

Luke Tunnecliffe, Chief Content & Development Officer from JAM TV states “JAM TV has a history of involvement in meaningful sporting events in this country so when approached to partner with these Games, we jumped at the opportunity, as we pride ourselves on our commitment to supporting diversity in sports. We are thrilled to be able to support the Games coverage and to mentor Jack and Nick in learning the ropes of sports broadcasting.”

Tracey Corbin-Matchett OAM, Director of Deaf Sports Australia and CEO of Bus Stop Films says “I am so grateful to the team from JAM TV for showing kindness and professionalism towards the Games and recognising the importance of elevating deaf sports through inclusive production practices. I am proud that the broadcast will support the employment of deaf crew and thank JAM TV and FOX SPORTS for their combined support to inclusion in sports broadcasting.”

The Australian Deaf Games will run from 13th to 20th January in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, bringing over 1200 athletes and their families to the region in a celebration of Deaf sport, culture and community. For more information about the games head to https://austdeafgames.org.au/
