(DOCUMENTARY) Ty Brown is Executive Director of Brooklyn United, a Brooklyn, NY marching band. BU keeps young people off the streets, from gangs and worse. We experience Ty’s fall from grace due to alleged sexual misconduct with an underage female band-member.

Director/Editor/Camera: Tracey Anarella
Back story:
I hired Brooklyn United for a project that I produced for Discovery Network. I was so taken by the band that I chose to do a short documentary on them.

The scandal did not arise in the story until after we started shooting.
