Theory of Park Foreman

The Park Foreman video appears to pan left-to right, following an airplane.

1. Shoot entire shot in high definition with no camera motion - tripod mount, focus at infinity.
2. Import high-def footage into standard-def composition
3. Insert stable airplane layer, masking off foreground buildings as required.
4. Add virtual camera motion with automatic motion blur.
5. Add defocus filter across some frames to simulate auto-focus "fishing".
6. Export.

It's not the only one I think that was filmed on those conditions.

The Hezarkhani shot, the Luis Alonso shot and the Ronald Pordy shot are also in my list of possible tripod shots.

Damn you Ace. We didn't figure that there would be geniuses like you to figure this all out. Tick tock.

don't forget that the PF video starts with some blurry motion shots of a roof, as the camera is brought into play-- which complicates this scenario a little.
