Lifetree Media is about telling stories by visually depicting life around us, whether it’s a short documentary on the future of millennial travelers or statistics brought to life by motion graphics.

We breathe life into static content, based on a wealth of knowledge and many years of video production.

The services we offer cover all short and long form projects and include:

  • Directing

    with a detailed understanding of story structure and editing, ensuring that interviews effectively communicate the message and that the ‘cut-away’ visuals are abundant and broken down into effective sequences.

  • Editing

    often called directing for the second time, brings all the content together to form the story. This is called the off-line edit. In the on-line edit we do colour correction, colour grading, effects and add final graphics before delivery.

  • Motion Graphics

    what has become an indispensable part of video production, this adds extra life with animations or beautifully crafted titles, taking video to the next level.

The brains and the brawn behind Lifetree Media, Tommy braves the world with only his camera and technological know-how to shield him. Over 20 years’ experience in the field has given Tommy the opportunity to work with television shows such as Top Billing, Carte Blanche and The Dr Mol Show.

Marketing Coordinator and Account Executive

After gaining international exposure in Dubai for five years, Kirsty completed her BCom Management Sciences degree at Stellenbosch University, majoring in Marketing Management and Entrepreneurship & Innovation. Kirsty is not the type to get bogged down by emails and phone calls. When she’s not being carried off the dance floor, she finds time to dabble in being a social media whiz, master organiser and gin enthusiast.


Marketing Coordinator and Account Executive

Jessica completed her BCom Hons Degree in Business Management alongside various short courses in marketing. Originally from the UK, Jessica considers South Africa as her home. She has a passion for travel, hiking and overindulging in sushi. It’s important that Jessica applies her delicious smelling hand cream each day, as she keeps not just a finger, but her whole hand, on the pulse of digital marketing.


Marketing Coordinator and Account Executive

Daina completed a BCom in Marketing at Varsity College and went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Management in Marketing at UCT. Although Daina works in marketing, she could very well be working for a circus, judging by the finesse at which she juggles her job and passion for highland dancing. As an outgoing person, too-long a silence in the office stands no chance against Daina’s cheery chatter.



Berdene is a whizz with numbers and enjoys ‘the bottom line’. She has worked for many prominent hospitality establishments locally and abroad, and has made her home in the beautiful Mother City. She enjoys time spent with family and friends along with a good bottle of bubbly, as well as treating herself to a night of comedy.

Be warned – Tommy is infectious. His energy, enthusiasm and quirkiness will turn your spark to a flame – and nothing is every mundane when he’s on set. Yet beneath the bright eyed eagerness is a dogged, highly skilled editor who knows what shots are needed – making him uber valuable as a director/editor. In my more than 10 years of working with Tommy, I’ve yet to request a re-edit or reshoot … cause he gets it – and he gets it first time, every time!! Ugh! Feels like I’ve just shared a trade secret I’m not so sure I really want to share…

Tommy gets it! He captures the feeling and essence of a message better than I could even have briefed him. He is a pure pleasure to work with.

I have known and worked with Tommy for over 10 years now and am always amazed by how professional and efficient his work is. His understanding of the industry and fun approach to work helped us get what I needed done easily and of international standard. I’d recommend Tommy for any of your picture media related requirements.
