2 things:

How exactly is that done? Meaning, what are you doing to get the sparks?

To get the sparks, you light steel wool on fire.

These guys had some kind of homemade holder for the steel wool attached to a chain.
They were lighting it on fire with a 9 volt battery.

Second thing, 15 seconds is a long time to stand still, lol.

You're telling me.
I was very impressed with the guy holding the sword.
I believe the flash was set off 2 or 3 times a shot.

It could be if we set up 2 flashes set off at the same time the ghosting might be less.

If you try this where things could start on fire, a fire extinguisher should probably be near by.

Without the tunnel containing the sparks, I'd guess that they would have flown 50 feet in all directions.
Oh yeah, remember wolten metal is very hot, and can leave a mark.
