Official Review

To read my thoughts about Ccopin's work, read my review of Friend, Volume 1.

Volume 2 comes with the DVD, a black glove, reading glasses and an English transcription of Triangular Table Talk, an interview with Daniel Rhod about Copin's thoughts on magic.

I have only one additional thought to add to add to my review of the first volume. Copin does a fine job of seamlessly melding his props and actions with a script. He's also very adept at incorporating music and sound effects with his close-up performance. I think everyone could learn from these DVDs, even if they don't do any of the material.

Manufacturer's Description:

Final DVD in a 2 Volume series of original close-up effects created by Bruno Copin.

All of the effects in these DVDs are accompanied by specially composed music. The explanations are specially filmed in interactive multiangles. Highly Didactic.

Specific materials have been supplied with the DVDs. The quality of each element was a priority in the production of these products.

In FRIEND, Vol. 2 you will find a pretty glove ideal for performing the surreal effect Invisible Man. Included is a special pair of glasses that will help you considerably when preparing the thread.

As a bonus, the History of the thread featuring magicians Daniel Rhod and David Stone (in French) will develop your historical knowledge of this subject. (A written English translation has been included).


  • Invisible Man - A surrealist effect with a glove.
  • Any Volunteers? - Step forward!
  • Saint Exupery - Can you hear the planes?
  • Ripples - A visual double miracle on the table.
  • Surf - A superb flourish worthy of attention.
  • Lover in the Cupboard - A substitution trunk style effect with cards. The story gives meaning to this effect.
  • Flourishes - A mix of balanced flipping flourishes using invisible thread.
  • It Was You! - A signed postcard appears in a sealed envelope (demonstration only). Material and explanation available separately.
