Why We Are - Who We Are

The idea of Creative Caption & Video originated after Chris, then Media Director of Saint Paul’s Baptist Church, received a letter from a broadcast company outlining that “All broadcast show tapes must have Closed Captioning by January 1, 2006 or your shows WILL NOT air.”

Already aware that very large percentage of non-profit and religious organizations barely make enough money to cover broadcast expenses, Chris Heipel designed a company to offer affordable closed captioning and media services, so these groups would be able to continue sharing their missions and messages.

Creative Caption & Video offers great prices for every project. Both non-profit organizations and religious groups may be eligible for an even greater reduction of pricing. Please contact Creative Caption and Video today to get started.
