iPOP at the 2004 IFP Independent Spirit Awards, Volume 2

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

We took a ton of pictures of people at the IFP Independent Spirit Awards during the cocktail hour -- before the ceremony was live on IFC. Basically, we did a power photo session early on so we could feel less pressure later, several glasses of wine into the event. As it turned out, we had the wine, but still took pics throughout the afternoon and again later at the IFC/Target party.
