VERY cool effect... I so seriously wish I'd thought of that.

Obviously a moving light... a spotlight-type instrument (Maybe a Source Four or something like that) that is continuously arcing around the subject from above.

How exactly that is physically accomplished, we can't be sure. It could be as complicated as some kind of track in the grid that drives the lighting instrument around in a circle... or as simple as an instrument mounted on a counterweighted pole that is suspended from above from the balance point and allowed to spin around the subject. That's probably the way I would try to do it.

Again, the results there are just flawless (there was probably a good bit of clean-up work in post) and the effect is really really cool.
