Jay’s Story

This video was produced by Troy Sirat (’15), when he was a freshman in my broadcast journalism I class. The assignment was to produce a feature story about someone who had something important or life changing that had happened to them. Troy chose to tell the story of his brother Jay, who had died from a drug overdose a year earlier. Though he “broke” some of the rules the students were taught about feature stories, the end result was compassionate and compelling.
