Here is how he did it in his own words:
Making the video took a lot more work than I originally thought. I started planning at 10am and finished at midnight. First I looked at all my stuff lying around for ideas. Then I sketched out the sequence. Next I mounted the iPhone to the ceiling of my garage by the attic hatch so I could still see the screen with my head in the attic. I then started the time lapse and realized I couldn’t do it alone. So my wife helped me and I started again. All the clothing and items were pre-staged just out of frame so I could get to them fast. Then I edited the video in Adobe Premier adding titles and sounds. Sorry for the cheesy music I wanted to make sure I used open source (non copyrighted) midi files.
