    no need to be that torturous for the subjects.... lol

    for a single file, assuming whateva mentioned, then yes it is possible.

    anything more than 1 row... nah doubt so. u will get stiching errors i suspect.

    not too familiar with the technique, but if it works by how i think it works...

    set a fixed focus at XXX distance so that anything along that plane is sharp.

    do a pan so that u get a panaroma + the shallow DOF effect.

    then the DOF might be too shallow to take anything more than 1 row.

    wow.. didn't expected so many comments..
    anyway, according to the dof calculator, the total dof for a 85mm f1.4 wide open using a 5dmk2 at 10m(for example) is approx 1m plus.
    even for a group shot of say 2rows, the distance between first row and 2nd row's faces will be less than 1m.

    does this mean it'll work for a group shot of 2 rows? obviously if u got everybody to stand in 1 row, it'll definitely work.

    If you look at the picture you will know it can fit at least another 2-3 people. And it would work.

    He also specified '1-2 rows'. I showed something with 2 rows-ish since the technique to take photos of only one row would not be very applicable when taking two rows.

    Ok yes on a closer look the space in front of the couples seems to be in focus as well.

    Sometimes it is better to analyze more and think before speaking/typing.

    Nothing to apologize about. Just some general advice.
