Preserve your family history on video
Family history videos feature where you were born, your parents and grandparents, and pass on your treasured family stories and memories.
They enable you to capture the moving vision and sound of your loved ones forever.
Also know as “legacy” videos, as the name suggests, family history videos are often purchased to hand down from an ancestor to preserve family history. So they make amazing family legacy gifts as the videos are passed onto generations to come.
You may not realise it, but your children are genuinely interested in you and your past. And they and their children will benefit from your shared family stories and experiences.

Cindy Siano, Family Video Producer
I’m Cindy, I produce professional family history videos and I have heaps of experience from the tv and advertising industry. I help people capture their family memories and stories on video to enjoy now and pass onto future generations. Now I’m ready to tell your story.
Life and Times Family History videos
My family history videos are entertaining, short, cinematic style films. They usually go for around 15 minutes, but it depends on how much information you have and want to capture.
Once you decide to make a video, I’ll meet with you and your family members to plan your family history video together. I’ll then get to know you more, your family or friend’s through in-depth interviews.
During the interviews I’ll tease out the most compelling parts. Then I will craft the film with the most compelling stories, entertaining photos and music and create for you an impressive video using the latest equipment and editing software.
You and your family will cherish this keepsake and enjoy it now and pass it on to your family for the future.

These will be held in a place special to the family, where you all feel comfortable. My interviews will be relaxing and flow like a casual conversation. You can select the family members you want to be involved.
Generally I’ll film in two places – at your home and a favourite place. But shooting can be arranged anywhere within the metropolitan area. The family house is usually suitable for these videos.
I’ll get you to dig out your historical family photos or videos, which I will weave into the video with the interviews and location shots.
You can choose the music, or you can leave it up to us. There are no extra costs for family videos, unless you intend to feature your video publicly for commercial purposes.
For each video you will get a USB in a professional keepsake pack – plus an online link to share with others. These can be viewed on your TV, computer, iPad and smartphone. Each participant will also receive a Life and Times branded USB.
