This past Thursday was Film Biz Recycling, Constructed by Krrb and Wrangled by Jessi Arrington. An event celebrating secondhand, upcycling, recycling and redistribution.

In addition to beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery, tacos from Oaxaca and an amazingly fast and funny auctioneer, Al Baker, we successfully auctioned off 95% of the items up for bid. That’s a lot of support for Film Biz, a non-profit dedicated to the redistribution of props and materials from NYC productions to local charities and organizations.

A BIG THANKS to all those that came to the event and supported in their many ways!

And an enormous thank you to our supremely stylish curators, Jessi Arrington, Oliver Jeffers, Tina Roth Eisenberg AKA Swiss Miss, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy, and our very own Andrew Wagner of Krrb.

So go ahead and check out your photos! Looks like you had an awesome time playing with props and being in the spotlight on the green carpet.

View the photos!
