Cameras I used in this video:
Highspeed camera- Chronos 1.4 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1714585446/chronos-14-high-speed-camera
Main Camera - Sony RX 10 ii
Secondary Camera - Sony RX 100 IV
Tertiary Camera - GoPro Hero 4 Black

My new foundry is made from:
Insulating firebrick - GREENTHERM 26 LI http://thinkhwi.com/global-sourcing-centers/
High Temperature mortar - GREENPATCH-421 http://thinkhwi.com/global-sourcing-centers/
Bio-Soluble Ceramic Blanket - http://skylinecomponents.com/
I highly recommend looking for a HWI distribution center near you. They sell to individuals, and because they make the refractory materials the price is dirt cheap, like $36 for a 12 pack of insulating firebricks. On amazon they are $27 for 2 firebricks.

Other materials:
Red Hot cannonball - 6lb, ~3 inch cast iron shotput.
Propane burner for foundry - http://www.ebay.com/itm/U-S-Made-gas-burner-blacksmith-forge-raku-kiln-propane-foundry-with-regulator-/232172874783?hash=item360e94ec1f:g:6RoAAOSwzOxUYmHZ
