  • Annet McCroskey | Founder

    Annet McCroskey’s passion for developing young talent began when she became Assistant Director of the Young Peoples’ Program at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in Los Angeles. Annet’s career in the entertainment industry began on the production side of things, later going on to be an Assistant Director for a slate of films.


    After becoming a mom, Annet returned to her true passion of guiding young talent, teaching acting at The Young Actors Studio and The Studio For Young Actors. In 2004 she started managing young actors, founding the company Little Stars Management. As her teen and adult roster grew, the company name was changed to Artistic Endeavors in late 2007.


    Annet has served on the Board of Directors of the Talent Managers Association for over twelve years, and her tenure as President of the TMA from 2013-2015 marked the first time a woman had held the position in twenty years. She was awarded TMA Manager of the Year in 2013. Recently, she co-produced the feature film Locating Silver Lake starring Finn Whittrock and Josh Peck and served as Associate Producer for the Disney Channel Digital micro movie Nelson Bixby Takes on The Whole Wide World.


    She is an Emmy Award voting member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Women In Film, Film Independent, The Sundance Institute and serves on the Board of Advisors of Children In Film.


    Her passions are her family and standing up for equal human rights and especially Native American and indigenous rights as well as protecting our environment and children. Annet strongly believes in education and paying it forward. She encourages her clients to be actively involved in their communities and give back through volunteering.

We strongly encourage our clients  to give their time and money to a cause of their choice for the greater good of humanity - even before they are successful. Start paying it forward, stay humble and help out where and when they can. We believe, that if you instill the sense of giving back in a young person and performer and they have a purpose in life greater than themselves, they will become contributing members of humanity as a whole, have a higher level of consciousness to make a difference and have a more fulfilled life beyond this often fleeting entertainment business.

"You must be the change you want to see in the world" - Ghandi
