Our May show kicked off with a brief chat with our guest judge, screenwriter and producer George Strayton (credits include XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS).  We then showed Joe Lipari's DREAM JOB,  a film about a down-on-his-luck filmmaker who gets the chance of a lifetime, to shoot a film for who he thinks is George Lucas. The film also features a cameo from the Iron Mule's Victor Varnado as none other than "Mr. Lucas."

We then screened an episode of Meghan O'Neil's  J. CREW CREW, a web series about models... who are friends... and go on adventures... and wear J. Crew. It's great, and not just coz we said so; it took home our audience's choice award! Check it out HERE.

Next up was a very informative video from David Ward called HOW TO TIE A DOUBLE WINDSOR ON CRACK. Need we say more? Then a great, silent comedy from Ben Model and Jeff Seal,  IT LOOKS LIKE RAIN. This was Ben and Jeff's second time at the Iron Mule, we screened another silent film from them a few months back, A DAY'S MESSING.

From Steve Collins we saw MARKELSON'S SYNDROME, a story of new love, a rare disease and goulash.

The Judges award went to POCKETS by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, a hilarious short about a robbery that goes horribly wrong and involves lots and lots of pockets.

Next we screened an episode of SERIOUS BUSINESS by Ballard Boyd, and had a QnA with the series' co-writer and star, Rob Asaro.

And finally we closed with our Wanna Be A Star? film (a monthly series that pairs one lucky audience member with one of the festival's filmmakers to make a short). This month's film was a great comedy about a puppet sub-letter who loves to party named SASSAFRAS BEANBAG, directed by Ryan Arey and starring audience member Chiara Zaccheo.

As programming is winding-down at 92Y TriBeCa, this was our second to last show at this venue. For our final show at the space, our announcement of our new home, and a new episode of J. CREW CREW, come on down to 92Y TriBeCa (200 Hudson St.) on June 1st for the next Iron Mule!
