Phil Began writing and directing shows around the world for companies like Disney, Universal Studios, FOX, New Line Cenema, Six Flags and many others. After writing the very successful Fox Family Original Movie, "Ice Angel," Phil was hired to produce the independent film "Siren" which led him to write and direct the independent sitcom pilot "Gags" as well as other independent films.

His book and seminar are believed by some to be one the move intensive and original techniques on performing today. Most recently Phil has become an award winning filmmaker with Sandance Pictures as the writer, producer and director of the critically acclaimed documentary "Who Will Stand."

New Improv Show
Wednesday Nights from 

Improv Audition Challenge was                  
created by Mike Krasner, a stand        
up comic, and John Gilligan, with
one idea in mind. Make Improv 
something that anyone could do.
Simple concept-and it's turned into the Arts Districts longest running improv show. Now in it's second year, the reviews are amazing. Contestants audition
for a future spot on the show, but they do it in
front of a live audience.  The audience helps decide who comes back the following week as a Featured Contestant, appearing with the professionals. They have  
contracted with Casting Call Entertainment to show everyone-Improv should be FUN. The definition of true improv is to create something off the top of your head, and act it out on the spot. Easy and fun. 

Prizes handed out to the winners at Casting Call Entertainment.

Sharry Flaherty 
Marketing, Acting and Goal Setting Class
Saturdays from 
3:30 to 5:30
Cost: Free for Casting Call Students 
General Public: $25 at door

I am so very fortunate to be in a business where
here my goal allows me to help others reach theirs! Seeing brilliant talent, aspiring actors, directors and writers is an inspiration and Casting Call has allowed me to mentor and help nourish those who are honing their craft. I've come to know the industry, the pitfalls and the marketing aspects of it, like the proverbial "back of my hand". 

This knowledge has resulted in opening my second office, out in Beverly Hills, now in its third year. The expansion into more consulting and marketing will increase the opportunities available to the enormous amount of talent currently with Casting Call, which has enjoyed continued success in Las Vegas since its inception in January 2009. 

The overall range of available resources will further enable young talent to reach their potential and will provide the tools and platform necessary to strategically approach their future and, hence, their success.

As President/Owner of Dark Water Productions,
I work in close conjunction with my other company, Casting Call, to expand the horizons of talent I thrive on finding both here in Las Vegas and L.A. I work developing their portfolios, demo reels, cover letters, head shots, resumes - the entire package. 

I am both a film producer and writer and facilitate industry seminars in both Las Vegas and L.A. I have written and produced the full-length film "Ominous", which was distributed worldwide in Feb. 2011. I have produced more than 27 short films in the past 16 months alone, while being honored with numerous awards, the most recent being my latest short "Spare Change" which won "15 Minutes of Fame Film Festival" in Florida for Best Horror  Film. Currently, I am developing two full length films "Trepidation" and "Gold Brick" in  partnership with L.A. Producer Bob Burris. 

My passion lies in the industry and one I am lucky enough to share with aspiring talent looking for the edge they need to be on the right path to their success. With my experience, background and ethics, Casting Call is here to be the catalyst that accelerates talent and opportunity in the right direction. There is no end to what we can do together!
