Constantine Set Visit Photos

Back in November I went on a set visit that took a group of media behind the scenes of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Powers, and Constantine. I'm always impressed by the amount of work that goes into building the fake worlds we watch on our television screens and all of these sets amazed me with their size and quality. From the Salvatore mansion to Constantine's mill house - I was inwardly flailing for a few days. Okay, outwardly flailing sometimes too, but I did my best to stay professional.

I mentioned Constantine's mill house and holy smokes, it was like walking around in a candy store. The two-story set was decorated to the nth degree. Production designer Dave Blass made it feel like a real home. It's practically overlowing with books, gadgets, and oddities. And let's not forget all the easter eggs. In fact, if you're a DC Comics fan and you're not following Blass on Twitter, go remedy that now. He shares photos, sketches, hints, and all kinds of goodies about sets in Constantine all the time.

And Blass was a delight during the set visit. He answered our questions - sometimes repeatedly - and let us wonder around the mill house to take a closer look at whatever we wanted. One area was off limit for spoilers, but for the most part, we were allowed to take pictures at will. And I did. Here are a few of them:

So many books.

Yeah. I would have been happy to spend the entire day in the mill house - as long as I could avoid all the traps. Read all about my Constantine set visit at IGN. More importantly, keep watching Constantine live to help its chances for renewal!


  1. Wow. That is super cool! I would love to visit sets like those.

    1. Set visits are a lot of work/sleep deprivation, but they're really fun!
