Najeeb Tarazi created the film using a variety of automated rotoscoping techniques, including machine-learning enabled rotoscoping, to combine skaters' successes and failures into the same moment. Inspired by 'ghost' runs in which people overlay dozens of attempts to complete a level of Super Mario, Najeeb wanted to apply the same concept to real-life. The result is a new kind of onion-skin that combines not just many time slices from a single attempt, but up to 20 distinct attempts at a single trick.
