Steven Spielberg is a genius, and every once in a while, he does something to remind us of that fact. 

The 75-year-old filmmaker made his first music video ever, a three-minute gem for Marcus Mumford, and he shot it on an iPhone in just one shot. 

Mumford posted the news on his Twitter account, saying that Spielberg’s wife Kate Capshaw was the “almighty dolly grip.”

You may remember Mumford from his group Mumford and Sons, and this is his new single, Cannibal, which is part of his first self-titled solo album. 

This film did not have the splashy special effects of a typical Spielberg masterpiece; it was shot in black and white, showing Mumford playing his new track in an empty room. 

Congrats to Mumford; getting a master director to be involved is quite a get for him.  He most recently made news for canceling his own lead guitarist; he and his fellow bandmates supported Winston Marshall leaving the band for supporting a tweet by a right-wing author. That’s all it took for his bandmates to turn on him. 

As for Spielberg, his next film is called The Fabelmans, starring Seth Rogen, which comes out November 23.
