Stephen Nebgen is at it again—offering information that may be helpful to artists and writers—and the lawyers who serve them.

I wrote about Stephen and his entertainment law mixers before. And next Wednesday, November 12, he holds another in his series of entertainment law workshops. This one will be in downtown Phoenix at MonOrchid Gallery and Studio (214 E. Roosevelt Street, Phoenix 85004).

Here is how Stephen describes the November 12 event:

“These events will be a little different than the seminars that you may have attended in the past. The biggest difference is that there will be a hands-on application of the information presented. For example, the first workshop will address issues of Copyright Law. After discussing the important nuances of Copyright, we will then go through the process of filling out a Copyright Application online.”

The event opens with a 7:00 pm reception, followed by the 7:30 program. The cost is $50 (or less if you’re a student or a member of IFP/Phx).

monOrchid phoenix-arts-collab-logo 6Stephen tells me that the event is aimed more for artists, but he believes attorneys would get a benefit also. And monOrchid shares a building with Songbird Coffee and Tea, so you can’t go wrong.

Follow-up workshops will be held on the second Wednesday of every month.

To RSVP, call (602) 253-0339.

The workshop is presented in collaboration with monOrchid’s own Shade Projects (which is worth its own story entirely!).

Next Monday, August 25, an “industry mixer” with an entertainment attorney and a film industry pro may offer some unique conversations—and opportunities.

Entertainment attorney Stephen Wade Nebgen will be available that evening. Perhaps you or a client have a project that would benefit from some thoughtful discussion. I met Stephen years ago (at an arts event, o‘ course), and I would agree with the event notice when it says, “This will be a great opportunity to have a valley-based contact to draw upon with any legal issue related to the film industry.” He will be there and answering questions about entertainment law.

The no-host happy hour is offered by Stephen and by Heather Holmberg, of The Film Capital. They each will be able to talk about the industry—and your project.

Here’s the skinny:

DATE: Monday, August 25, 2014

TIME: 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

PLACE: Christopher’s and Crush Lounge

ADDRESS: 2502 E Camelback Road, Ste. 102, Phoenix

Decades ago, when I toiled on a law review focused on entertainment law, I thought I spied a future in the practice area. Alas, the Directors Guild (and other potential employers) passed on my resume treatment. But there’s always chapter 2!
