TA Films has a long work-history with Executive Producer Jim Jorden, stemming back to before the conception of the company.

The relationship continued to NASCAR, where Tyler and Jim both worked closely together for NASCAR Productions. Jim has also worked for NFL Films, which Tyler began shooting for last football season. TA Films works on numerous projects every year with Jim, including deploying crews for the past 3 seasons of SEC Inside on SEC Network, which Jim is the Producer of.
