While not a pyrotech, I use to help my uncle, who was. Sky burst fireworks come in two types, rockets and mortars. The loud booms heard in this clip come from mortar shells being fired, the long streaks of light climbing skyward from rockets. The type of effect created is dependent on the payload delivered. As a general rule, rockets reach a greater altitude but deliver a smaller payload. The different colors seen are made by using different minerals and chemicals packed into different types of explosives. The explosives can be packed so one type surrounds another, each layer is called a shell. The effect shown at the end of this clip was created by using a two shell primary charge surrounded by clusters of secondary charges lofted by a rocket. The secondaries were dispersed as shrapnel by the primary's explosion.

Definitely skip to 1:18. One pretty big one followed by one ridiculous one.
