Dan Gelfond spent four years working as a video interviewer for Steven Spielberg's Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation. In that time, he used his videographer's eye and interviewer's wit to help collect the testimony of thousands of Holocaust survivors and witnesses, immortalizing their stories. He also discovered his passion for preserving memories through video, a love that became a career when he founded Keepsake Family Tree Video.

Dan records major events, such as weddings or mitzvahs. He also lends his expertise and professional equipment to the production of corporate videos or event recordings, including vital trainings, all-hands meetings, and that one time Thompson left a thumbtack on the boss's chair. Additionally, he rescues old memories, like kids taking their first steps, from outdated and fading VHS or camcorder tapes by transferring them to DVD. His original creation, the Living Legacy DVD, remains his most notable service. As outlined in the Chicago Tribune, Dan employs the same skills he used working for the Visual History Foundation to interview a beloved family member, forever preserving their stories, advice, and wisdom. He travels anywhere in the world to conduct these interviews, bringing his professional lighting equipment, microphones, and, most importantly, demeanor.
