Love this effect, and there are some good tips on the video.
If you want to avoid the break up of lights that Dan mentions at around 4.20, then shoot with a 360 degree shutter (say 1/48s if shooting at 24 fps).
There's a way to do this in Premiere (without plugins), some details here:https://vimeo.com/65375941
All three channels put out a lot of useful info. If you don't like them, don't watch.
