Film Swap with Javiergap

Uncertainty, curiosity, and surprise are heavy enough reasons as to why you should never refuse an offer for a film swap.

Doing a film swap means sharing a whole film roll with another person. The procedure is very simple. The one commissioned to start the process only has to mark the beginning of his film and take his 36 (or 24) exposures. After rewinding the film once finished, said person needs to contact the other and send him the film. The one who receives the film first needs to ensure that he matches the first shot his partner took. Then, the only thing that needs to be done afterwards is shoot until the entire roll is finished.

In this case, javiergap asked me if I would be interested in sharing a film with him, and I couldn’t say no. This is a mean to obtain completely unexpected results which happens to be curious as well at the same time.

The result of our experiment was this, a blend of Malaga’s and Barcelona’s landscapes:
