So our business here is done — principle photography, anyway.  It was a challenging schedule we had for this latest installment of RIDDICK – a scant 47 days – but we managed to get what we needed (and more), thanks to a skilled crew and a gifted and willing cast.  I’m packing up now to return to L.A. after five months here, but the memories of Montreal are already piling up in my head in a way that I know will haunt me, happily, for years to come.

Above is a photo of me and some of Santana’s crew between takes on the set of RIDDICK.

    Looks intriguing….Hope the Story is good and that you left “The Dog” in… ( The one featured in the storyboards-it really seemed to add a lot!) All in all…I wish you the Best with this…You are a Wonderful Director.. :)

    I can’t believe you can shoot a movie in so few days.

    It has been really interesting following Vins Facebook through the making of yet another chapter of the amazing Riddick story. Keep up feeding us little tidbits please.

    Can’t wait to see it in the theater!

    Was that you guys down in old Montreal? I had one of the most surreal moments in my life as I walked by your set and glanced over through a metal mesh and saw this barren post-apocalyptic world. One of those ‘am I actually awake or still dreaming moments’ before I realized it was a movie set
