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.
