In opposition to strategies of conventional filmmaking  i.e. 'invisible cutting' and the rules of continuity, 'plasma' films are characterized by different concepts of montage, using both: consciously elaborated cutting strategies and invisible cutting, mounting shots in a fugue like structure, using parallel cutting as well as leitmotivs and other methods. Whenever it seems necessary rules are broken.

Since script play / directing / production design / camera and editing are concentrated in one hand, it is possible to meticulously plan and configure the film before shooting starts and then to shoot only those cuts that definitely will be used in the film.
