What I charge

Legacy video costs

Video prices to meet your needs

Legacy video costs will vary depending on the Life & Times Video package you choose.   Prices can start from $50 for a Still Montage Video and around $300 for our Tributes gift package.  

But just as you decide your budget on a holiday or other purchase, we will discuss your spend before we get started.

Each story and video is individual.  So legacy video prices will be based on the duration of filming, number of people interviewed, travel and editing times, and final length of your video.  

For example, for a simple slide show (using still images) to celebrate a loved one’s birthday, our editing rate is $40 per hour, so 50 slides backed to a 5 minute song of your choice would cost around $200.  For tribute videos and life stories (moving footage and images), editing is $60 per hour.

If you are interested in creating your own Legacy, Holiday or Travel Video and want a rough estimate of the cost, then call me to discuss your ideas.

Cindy Siano, Family Video Producer


I’m Cindy,  I produce professional family 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.

Ball park price

Once you outline your story idea I can give you a quick ball park price.  Then after we plan your video in more detail, I will calculate the cost and give you a fixed quote. 

Yes, unlike on line video editing services, I will speak to you personally before we start so I clearly under what you want.

For Legacy videos, prices are set based on hours for filming, the number and location of shoots, length of the film and number of photos included to the music of your choice.  Quotes will include two edits, a keepsake presentation pack and one USB.  But if you want more, I will discuss any price increases before proceeding.

If you have your heart set on a specific video package but can’t afford the price, there are ways to bring down the price to meet your budget.  For example, we can reduce costs by limiting interviews, the number of people involved, number of photos and length of the video.

Shared family gifts

Often families will chip in as a shared gift to their parents, grandparents or other people special in their lives to split the costs.  The same applies to Tribute Videos recognising someone for their love and support, which brings down the individual costs.

Gift certificates are available.

If you choose to work with me, you will be paying for my years of filming experience, creativity, and passion for storytelling.  Having worked in tv and advertising, I have many skills including: directing film shoots, script writing and screen-testing.  I have also sourced props, managed clients and, on occasions, done make-up for cast members.
