ERIE, Pennsylvania - April 7, 2017 - Members of Kane Innovations' staff and management appeared in "This is Our Erie", a 5-minute film created to shift the narrative on the Erie, Pennsylvania manufacturing sector. The video features eye-catching clips of over 75 thriving regional businesses, as a voiceover artist powerfully speaks to the perseverance of Erie's workforce.
Following a national news segment that aired in February and portrayed Erie as a declining, rust-belt town, regional filmmakers and local organizations joined forces to communicate the positive truth about the Flagship City. The product of this collaboration has already received a combined total of over 111,000 views on Facebook and YouTube, since going live on Tuesday.
"This is Our Erie" was produced by John C. Lyons of Lyons Den Productions with MenajErie Studios, and was sponsored by the Jefferson Educational Society, the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority and Epic Web Studios.
Kane Innovations Welding Robot Operator Mark Klingensmith, appears at 1:18 and President Michael Show is shown at 3:17 in the film.
