brighton and hove finalist | 2013


Anya Krasnikova entered the Brighton & Hove Young Start-up Talent initiative in 2013, making it through to the final with her wedding production company ‘AK Weddings’. Although Anya did not win the initiative, her passion and determination to carry on her dream lived on. She soon moved into making feature films though her new company ‘Little Fury Films’, which she set up alongside business partner Veronica Trickett, who had been working Anya for the past 3 years, sharing her passion for creating both fiction and corporate films.

Anya commented that her time in Young Start-up Talent gave her “a much better understanding of the process of starting a business.” She stated; “I realised that my original business idea ‘Life-View’ needed a lot more support and development. I put it on hold and used everything I learnt from the process to set up AK Weddings, a video production business to document special occasions – with a focus on wedding’s.”

Since then Anya has worked on a number of corporate and feature films, which have grown both in budget and size. The team has since worked with overseas corporates, collaborating on local productions and is currently heading up pre-production of their own film, after many years of planning.
