Plains is a composite of a foreground, middleground and background layer green-screened on site. Each layer was shot at varying focal distances using a manual focus lens, with a fixed aperture (f/2.8), shutter speed, and focal length (50mm). For each layer of foreground, middleground, and background, a random number generator was used to determine which clip would be used, and for how many seconds, before proceeding to the next randomly determined clip.
