LensCAAP Video Production 

In 2020, LensCAAP was officially paused as a program, but members may still contact Dan Leppo for guidance on video production and services.  When LensCAAP is officially relaunched, CAAP will send out an announcement in its' regular newsletters.

LensCAAP HIstory:  In 2019, CAAP started up a new video production company called LensCAAP. LensCAAP empowered mission-driven organizations with creative, purposeful, and affordable video content. LensCAAP provided purposeful video content that will drive a return-on-investment for its customer's video purchase. CAAP members and nonprofit organizations receive a significant price reduction for LensCAAP video production services. LensCAAP's pricing structure reflects what a mission-driven organization can afford without compromising their limited financial resources. For all other for-profit businesses, LensCAAP prices its services equal to industry standards. All CAAP Affiliate Members receive the same reduced pricing that we would normally charge a nonprofit organization. For more information about LensCAAP, contact Dan Leppo at 717-233-1075.
