Cool concept

How do you get the movement on the camera like that?

Is this just one picture or is it many pictures overplayed. Is this edited?

It is 1 shot straight out of the camera. A shutterspeed of 2.5 seconds records the motion (lit by continuous light) and a short flash (broncolor scoro at 1/8000 sec t 0.1) at the end of the exposure freezes the end pose. The continuous light has a magenta colour gel over it which provides the colour during the motion. There is NO Photoshop used on this image.

Thank you so much!
