Just be sure to do it barefoot. The best results that way.
That guy made two parts in about 10 minutes. He's probably made hundreds of them.
Some day I'd like to do a little brass casting. I've got lots of scrap brass ;)

Don't laugh too long or too loud please. Otherwise I may take photographs in the brass foundry I use here in West Java.
They are just one step ahead of these guys, they wear shoes!

Another observation...

Maybe it's just a cultural thing?...

What's their adversion to work
benches and tables?

Why must everything be done
at ground level?

Ground level pouring is done so the metal can splash up and melt your face! U should know this!

As I remember from shop class getting the green sand just right was the big trick.
