Image Feels like I’m back in production! Been pulling 14-hour days trying to finish RIDDICK.  My typical day starts at 9am with intensive visual effects meetings, sweating out the details of our 900 VFX shots.  Then I jet across town to the mix stage, Soundelux, where I supervise the sound, balancing out the often-competing elements of music, sound fx, sound design, and dialog.  At night I hit the lab, Technicolor in Hollywood, staying until midnight to do “DI work” — color-correction of the movie.  This is where David Eggby and I have one last chance to get the images right, dropping in grads and power windows to finesse what we shot on set.  It’s a great tool, the Digital Intermediate.  Kind of like Photoshop for movies.  Gotta love it.  Gotta love the challenge of bringing it all home.

    It’s cool that you got the R-rating… and Vin posted on FB that Universal will announce the release date this month. Can’t wait! And I hope we’ll get to see the first trailer soon :)

    Keep up the good work David. Riddick is actually the only SciFi franchise I´m looking forward to be continued. Loved Pitch Black and the highly ambitioned Chronicles. These movies genuinly profitted from your experience as a scriptwriter, you can tell someone made these who knows how to tell a story. Sadly rare in modern hollywood.

    Many thanks to you and your crew DT. Your long hours and hard work are appreciated.
    I’m a big fan of Riddick and am thrilled that a third one is coming out. I love that you continued the series even though support from the industry wasn’t very forthcoming.
    Thank you, thank you.
