See Behind-the-Scenes Photos From Vulture Festival L.A.

The inaugural Vulture Festival L.A. happened last weekend at the Hollywood Roosevelt, and it was crazy. Crazy as in good, but also crazy like a padded room, since we had one of those, with photographers from JUCO and set designer Dane Johnson covering a room in the hotel with carpet, carpet, and more carpet. In turn, guests like Finn Wolfhard, Issa Rae, and Ted Danson felt free to let their freak flags fly, taking very silly photos in a studio brought to you by AT&T. Or sometimes the carpet was a nice, comfortable, soft background for lovely guests like Natalie Portman and Ava DuVernay.
