Dynamic Discs Media Manager Bobby Brown gave us the lowdown on the video, which he says required only one take to produce.

“No lie,” Brown said. “We met and talked about it, assigned the different scenarios. Did a dry run through where I talked everyone through how I’d be walking around, then we filmed it with an iPhone 7 Plus on a Gimbal [smartphone stabilizer] once. I watched it and was blown away at the results. We ordered pizza for everyone and it took me about an hour to edit.”
