Shot entirely on an iPhone 6, skier Nicolas Vuignier demonstrates a cool method to make a video selfie that captures the action from a 360-degree point of view. By spinning his phone on a string, then replaying in slow motion, the skier is seen from different perspectives as he skis a sweet looking line down the mountain.

Vuignier explains that perfecting the technique took two years of experiments, and that no phones were hurt in the process. If you want to give this trick a try, we’d recommend strong line and a Lifeproof phone case. From the looks of the video, he uses two strings to keep the phone at the proper angle from himself. It may take some tinkering, but seems entirely do-able.

Strap on some skis and get twirling!
