Batch-rendering passes

So I'd like to show you how to set up a batch render, when you are using render layers and render passes together. So I have simple Frankensteins monster toy in this scene. I just have a very simple camera animation. So, it's just moving back and forth. The whole animation is about 48 frames. I have several render layers here. On this toy layer, I am going to render the toy, the ground, I am going to render the shadow of the ball, but not the visibility of the ball.

It's been turned off in this render layer, using render layer overrides. chromeBall, I am going to render just the ball and the reflection of the monster on the ball, and then I have an additional render layer, which has a colorMask, so I have this blue applied to the ground plane, green for the ball and red for the monster toy. So if I open up the Render Settings window and take a look at the passes that I am going to render, for the toy layer, I have an ambient occlusion pass, a diffuse pass, and a reflection pass...
