What do you mean by spin. If you are refering to the opening scene where they talk about Madona’s like a Virgin, then the answer is A Dolly. It’s a track, which holds a cart which rides inside the track. the tripod and camera sit on top, and you can push the camera around on it. It was curved around the table.

its just a track and the camera moves right around the table, you can find pictures on the internet like in camera equipment stores, a lot of movies use them
