David Twohy’s hard at work in post-production on “Riddick,” the R-rated third film in the sci-fi action series starring Vin Diesel. Over the weekend he gave a quick update on the film’s progress, along with releasing a first glimpse at the film’s logo. Here’s Twohy’s update:
“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.”
