Starting at 0:26 and going to 1:22 is a single shot (agreed?). Notice at 0:55, the camera goes through the fence... How does the camera man get such a clean shot through it?
Some people say it's on a wire. Others say it's a hand-off to another camera man. I say it's still the camera man, but somehow he or she got through the fence without interrupting the flow of the camera or the fence. Help!
"At Peter Abraham's workshop in Boulder, he explained how the Pulp Fiction shot was done. I hope I'm not spoiling it for anyone.
The left side of the fence was on a spring-loaded track. When the op got close to the fence, they released a latch that snapped the fence back in an instant, allowing him to "step through". They could then reset the fence, lock it in place, and do another take easily. But man, it is so close. Their timing must have been perfect. My guess is that the clothes hide the break in the top of the fence."
This is close to my assumption, that an assistant or two behind the camera was moving the fence apart at the perfect time after it fell out of frame. Didn't realize it was actually on a track and they were moving it that way.

Most, if not all, of everything you hear in that shot is post-production foley work and stock sound effects, and a little voice-over work and music sync for the Latin house he runs past that's playing the record.
