As is common nowadays, visual effects work on feature films is done by several companies, sometimes up to a dozen or more. On 2002's PANIC ROOM french effects-cuisine BUF definitely got themselves the lion share: David's 3-minute signature shot of the camera travelling through the house!
On this site, the company displays some great screenshots of their work, and what's even more amazing, a MAKING OF video illustrating the visual effects wizardry that went into bringing David's one-shot vision to life.
The must-have PANIC ROOM 3-disc Special Edition DVD includes some further stunning visual effects, set design and sound-design featurettes. All goes to show you: This is a true masterpiece! David and his collaborators pulled off some amazing work and created a film, that ranges among the strongest cinematic achievements ever.
