Why does SAGAS exist?

Most people don't realize until it is too late how priceless a SAGAS video interview is. SAGAS founder David Hoffman's mother passed on 35 years ago. Before she died, he recorded an interview –copies of which quickly became the most wanted heirloom in his extended family. That video is the only living record of Eve Hoffman. Children, grandchildren, relatives and friends view it and cherish it. It provides those alive today clarity and insight into the history of the Eve Hoffman extended family that, beyond any other family heirloom inspires all those connected to use

Why have a SAGAS interview made?

A SAGAS video interview will become an instant heirloom that will last forever -- a living picture of who you or your loved ones were! Pictures fade and words on paper or on a computer are just that. Video is the only medium that will allow you to record the three-dimensional side of your life, and the lives of loved ones.

Why have SAGAS conduct an interview for you?

Successful video interviewing requires that the interview be conducted by a neutral 3rd party, an “innocent,” someone naïve about the person and curious to learn more. Someone who understands that the nature of an interview is that the person in front of the camera needs to tell stories and makes no assumptions about what people will know or understand or remember.

Who are the SAGAS video interviewers?

SAGAS videographers are enthusiastic and curious video professionals locally based in big cities and small towns across the United States. They make their living producing and directing videos for professional organizations, corporations, and individuals as wedding videographers, etc. We have gathered them together and trained them under David Hoffman to conduct high-quality longform interviews.

Why video interview Loved Ones?

As much as we hate to think about it, the people in our lives won’t always be there – and neither will we. When your parents are gone, and your grown children’s young children ask about your parents, what will you show them? A faded photograph? Or a meaningful video interview that captures the essence of their personality?

What will a SAGAS interview subject experience?

A SAGAS video interviewer contacts the subject to set up a convenient time and discuss the process. A half an hour before the scheduled interview time, the video interviewer arrives to set up. He/she works with the subject to select a comfortable location free from distractions and interruptions. The interview itself feels like an informal conversation between two people sitting on rocking chairs passing the time of day.

How will I and those I care about receive my SAGAS video interview?

Why wouldn't I do this by myself?

No one has the time and few have the skills to video record the people they love – family, friends, meaningful moments. To express their stories and be themselves, most people need the motivation, prompting, and encouragement that an experienced SAGAS videographer will give them.
