AVANTI PRODUCTIONS & MANAGEMENT is a British independent film & theatre production company founded by Veronica Lazar. Our producer had worked several years in the luxurious theatrical system of Eastern Europe, in major Romanian National Theatres (National Theatre of Craiova & National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca) and with a few of the best international theatre directors, such as: the regretted Master Director VLAD MUGUR, whose Last Apprentice she was for several years; the highly acclaimed international director SILVIU PURCARETE; the well known director MIHAI MANIUTIU, who inspired her decision in taking her English dissertation with Beckett's "Waiting for Godot"; the internationally recognized set & costume designers HELMUTH STURMER & LIA MANTOC.
Veronica founded AVAnti Productions in memory of her Master, theatre director Vlad Mugur, in February 2009, premiering in Leicester Square, West End - London in less then a month. Since then, the company evolved from a sole trading status to limited by shares company in 2013. Although Veronica is still using her stage name, the new limited company AVANTI PRODUCTIONS & MANAGEMENT LTD. is incorporated under her married name, as Anamaria Veronica Arsene.
Since 2010, when we opened a Talent Department, we have established a reputation among UK and US casting directors as a well known boutique agency for brilliant international talent, with predilection from Europe and Eastern Europe. We represent our clients in theatre, film, television and commercials on worldwide territories.
