The article presents an account of how visual effects supervisor John Farhat and company achieved, using a motion picture camera, a lengthy sequence that simulates the unbroken first-person point-of-view (POV) of the shooter in the blockbuster videogame "Doom." Farhat worked with London houses Framestore CFC and Double Negative and Los Angeles-based Stan Winston Studios to create the film's blend of digital and practical effects. The actor costumed as The Baron was shot via Steadicam by Alf Tramontin, who handled the filming of discrete shots that would later be seamed together to suggest one continuous POV.
