Editorial Reviews

In what is arguably the most in-depth interview on his distinguished 40-year career, Emmy(R) and Cannes Film Festival award-winning documentary filmmaker David Hoffman shares his wealth of knowledge and experience in this fascinating 90-minute documentary. Hoffman shares his insight on many creative processes such as storyline and character development, explains how he achieved multiple #1 prime time television ratings, showcases some of his most lucrative multi award-winning film fest projects, gives our viewers solid advice on how to get their projects on television, and much more.

Tragically, a fire destroyed Mr. Hoffman's home and the majority of his irreplaceable film masters and personal collections, including his interviews with Ronald Reagan, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan, and some of LIFE Magazine's greatest photographers. For the first time ever, Hoffman invites cameras into the room where he now keeps the items that survived the fire. He gives our viewers a personal tour while he talks candidly about loss, recovery, rebuilding, and his plans for future endeavors. A 30-minute, special edition extended tour, "A fire can put a man out but it did not put him under" is also available as a separate purchase here:

Life-long fans of Hoffman's work will enjoy his recollections of a career spanning more than four decades and how it is still going strong. Aspiring filmmakers will find Hoffman's candid advice and thoughtful approaches to his craft inspirational and invaluable for guiding their own creative endeavors.
