We are a film production company driven by passion
to turn your vision into reality.

About Us

Nothing inspires us more than fresh ideas.

Visions, ideas, dreams, thoughts, call them what you like - the creative process starts in your mind. Once that idea has been formed, you need the perfect blend of magic and tenacious dedication to make it come to life.

Established in 1998, Navigator is a leading Cape Town-based film production company headed up by Meike and Tina. Our rock-solid teams are committed to producing work of the highest standard, and our reputation for doing so has turned us into one of South Africa's most respected service facilitators.

With a combination of hard work, determination, grit, stamina and passion - we are the people who turn your vision into reality.

Meike Laesch Schoeman
Executive Producer
With 22 years of international film production experience under her belt, Meike thrives on the challenges of the industry. She is well-known amongst longstanding clients and in the local industry for her open heart but she 'rules' with tough and fair business ethics. Originally from Germany, Meike's adventurous heart was lost to Africa whilst exploring its beauty.

A Filipina raised in America, Tina has been living in South Africa for the past 23 years, 18 of which she has worked in the film industry. With a quiet, calm and measured demeanour, she's fast thinking and has a strength for logistics and planning. To balance the intense pace of work, she practises yoga which keeps her sane.
