Emmy® award-winning documentary filmmaker, David Hoffman has been capturing reality for approximately four decades. His national and international awards include: the Cannes Film Festival Critics Prize, the George Foster Peabody Award, and blue ribbons at the American Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival and Houston International Film Festival. Mr. Hoffman has produced hundreds of network television commercials, five documentary-style features and eighty-eight prime time PBS® specials and series, including specials for Nova® and The American Experience ™. His 125 reality films have appeared on The History Channel®, PBS®, TBS®, HBO®, and The Discovery ™ Channel.
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. In this 30-minute special edition to our first Creative Inspiration™ episode on Mr. Hoffman, he gives our viewers an extended personal tour of the room. He talks candidly about loss, recovery, rebuilding, his plans for future endeavors, and shares his personal story: "A fire can put a man out but it did not put him under."

"A fire can put a man out but it did not put him under.
Where I keep my things after my fire.
Fire be not proud.
My hideaway room
Where my burned-out things are kept.
How I survived my fire.
Fire destroyed his house - but not his creative spirit.
- Documentary Filmmaker, David Hoffman
