Videographer and film editor Dan Gelfond uses the advanced tools of his trade to transform any camcorder, beta, or VHS tapes into DVDs, saving them from the ravages of time. He stores up to two hours of footage on a disc, titling each carefully to match either its former tape's name or a new title requested by the owner. Although transfer times can vary from one day to four weeks depending on Dan's pending workload, he delivers the final product neatly packaged in a slim colored case.
Keepsake Family Tree Video
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 Additionally, he rescues old memories, like kids taking their first steps, from outdated and fading VHS or camcorder tapes by transferring them to DVD.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.
