Wednesday on Lake Effect

Ahead of the 21st annual Short Film Festival this weekend, we speak with local entertainment attorney Robert Arthur about the legal issues independent filmmakers need to consider. Then, we visit the Baumgartner Center for Dance, Milwaukee Ballet’s new home in the Third Ward. And we talk with Midwest-native Susan Welch ahead of her Boswell Book Company launch of her debut novel, A Thread So Fine.
