ABSTRACT
The article recalls the challenges behind the season four finale episode, "Commencement," of the television program "Smallville." According to small visual effects supervisor Mat Beck, delivering 117 shots in basically nine days is perhaps their biggest challenge. There were different effects that had to be invented and entire scenes that had to be choreographed. Beck also recounts the final sequence of the show which starts with an explosion.
