At Scale Omaha, we interview a lot of founders who have raised money. Our criteria for a Fireside Chat is loosely Series A and later or the equivalent traction. Well... Craig Nashleanas' Lens Distortions (LD) checks that second box.

A few months ago, LD was awarded App of the Day and has achieved significant revenue and user traction.

Craig Nashleanas is CEO of Lens Distortions, a music and effects platform for pro video editors and a content creation app for anyone looking to create high-end content. He worked extensively in video production before getting into the world of startups, design, and software, and eventually combined those backgrounds to co-found Lens Distortions.

In Craig's words, "It's validation that we're building something special in a very crowded market. What started as a niche tool for Instagrammers back in 2014 has grown to millions of downloads and become a catalyst for anyone who wants to create high-end content for social media."
