A series of short films about Fort Wayne
With support from the Lincoln Financial Foundation, YLNI launched a video project aimed at helping showcase area venues and attractions in a manner that would be attractive to the young leaders that our community hopes to attract and retain. Unlike promotions targeting tourists and other visitors, the project promotes the experiential elements of living in the community.
YLNI commissioned Kelly Lynch of Lynchpin Creative to produce videos, and Citizen Wayne was born.
