Review: Bottle Production by David Penn

By January 17, 2013

Follow me on:

A good production of a wine bottle seems to come out of nowhere and it's a proven crowd pleaser that can leave spectators speechless. With this in mind, all one needs is a great bottle production system and method, and David Penn, with his aptly named "Bottle Production," efficiently serves this purpose.

The kit comes with a utility device that secretly holds out almost any wine bottle. You show some magic that employs a napkin or handkerchief (not provided), and when the trick is over, spectators are stunned to see you uncover a wine bottle from within the folds of the handkerchief.

The device works well and adequately hides the bottle on your person. It's probably best used with a jacket but Craig Petty (who assists Penn with the instruction) shows you how to employ the device under a loose-fitting, untucked shirt that's worn over a T-shirt.

The bottle production is great for stage and stand-up work and Penn and Petty also use the production in their walk-around work. There are angle issues - you won't want people watching behind you. Reset is fast but you'll need to do this out of sight of spectators.

On the accompanying DVD, Penn and Petty offer thorough explanation on how to setup and use the device. You'll also learn about the necessary misdirection. For this, the DVD teaches a two-bottle production, as well as a solid coin trick.

If you've been looking for a bottle production, this one is good.
