James here from Three Degrees Off Center Productions. So I've been
working on a new body swap video project that I am planning on
expanding into a full length anthology series. This would be set in
a Black Mirror-esque world almost exactly like our own, however a
new technology has just been released that allows willing
participants to swap bodies with one another. The technology takes
off and soon everyone has access to it. Basic it's like having an
app on your phone.
What I want to explore in the various segments would be: what would
be benefits of this technology, how could things go right, and of
course, how could things go wrong?
In the first segment, which I am filming shortly (and hoping for
some new Patreon supports to help ease some of the finical burden),
it'll deal with the CEO of the company who created the technology
needing to swap with his new secretary, so that "he" can go into
the office to do some spying.
I did an open casting for the role and had over 900 actresses
submit for the secretary and over 500 actors for the CEO. It was an
amazing turnout and spoken to the top 5 actresses about being in
the other segments and they are excited to be apart of this
So just to be clear why I'm asking for Patreon help, this is me
really stepping up my game. These are no longer friends doing me a
favor, but these are SAG actors which means I'm paying them, plus
hiring some crew members. I really want to make something special,
so I'm putting a lot more 'skin in the game'.
My a patreon is set on a per video bases, so you'll get bill when
I'm done with the video. I haven't put anything out since January,
so no one's been billed for the last 7 months, so there's no
monthly costs, just when I complete a project.
My goal is to get my Patreon up to a minumin of $1500 (currently at
$488), to cover basic expenses that I am foreseeing. But the bigger
it gets, the bigger the episodes will be. I have one in mind that
would require 8 actors or more, plus a number of locations, but can
only do that one if my Patreon goes even higher, $4,000 or ideally
It'll be a lot of work, but with your help, we can make some very

I’d love to support and will check out your patron. Are there plans
for female to female switching?|
, 4 months, post #3 |
Hello James, I'd love to support this but I wonder. Will you
consider any 'multiple switchings' as in, example: Bob switches
with Amanda, then with Joel, then with Mimi, etc.|
, 4 months, post #4 |
Switcherfan: yes, one of the segments will be female to female, and
I'm actually really excited to film that one. For those who don't
like F2F, this one will be a little more interesting than your
typical one, so I think it will still be interesting even if you
only like M2F.
JetAbyss: I do have an episode planed that will have a
'Daisy-chain' swap, with someone going from body to body. That's
actually the one I mentioned that I'd like to have at least 8
people in it, but not all of them would be swapping. Currently I'm
looking at moving from 1 to 2 to 3, but if I could get the budget,
it's possible to add moving from 4 to 5, but we'll see. And I have
another one where a couple will swap with different people for fun.
I'm definitely trying some new things with this and have a number
of stories that you haven't seen from me before. I make something a
little different from what I've done before, but still with the
same sensibilities that I always bring to a project.
Thanks for asking and considering being a part of the adventure.

I'll definitely sign up, been meaning to do so. James---you did a
lot of videos with cosplayers etc before---do you still have "links
to that community" and maybe some scenarios planned around them?
"The superhero genre" is as big as it's ever been right now. And
body-swapping is VERY prevalent in comics!|
, 4 months, post #6 |
kwfan: Yeah, I defiantly still have ties in the cosplay community.
And while I haven't thought about doing a cosplay video for the
anthology (the main reason is getting the rights to the
characters), but I have thought about doing one that was strictly
for YouTube. The world for this project wouldn't have 'super
heroes", but it could have cosplayers, so I could do one set in the
world and only post it on YouTube. I wouldn't be able to be part of
the anthology, but it could be a bonus feature of sorts. So that
way out there at this point. And maybe someday I'll do an actually
super hero one for a different project. :)|

What would be the rate that these episodes cone out? I assume that
if we join as a $20 member that would mean $20 per episode? Just
want to see what this would amount to budget wise.|
Alternatively, if this “season” of episodes would count as one
project (i.e., $20 for the season), then I could see myself
donating more, for example.

If you want to go full Black Mirror, it would be interesting to
explore what kind of society would have allowed this kind of
technology to go widespread in the first place. I imagine there
would quite some resistance to it in the "real world".|

I think the story was Arizona Secret Society over at
fictionmania.tv where rich neighbors would swap with each other. I
thought that was really cool. I often thought it would be cool to
switch with my neighbors wife and go to football games with him
that his company provides to him since she doesn't like football at
all. He has to go as a couple, I get to watch a free game, and she
stays and hangs out with my wife. Win / Win|

1. To work out for someone (exercise) - For sure! We mention this
in the first episode as a call back to The Body Swap Workout.
2. To make extra money - Absolutely, which goes back to number 1.
3. To serve prison terms for others - I don't that would be
allowed, but serving a prison term in a different body would be
4. To carry a child to term - We've talked about this. Or having a
guy swap with a girlfriend/wife to have to deal with her period.
5. To have surgery for someone - Also talked about this one.
6. To experience sex as opposite sex - Yeah, there'd be a whole
culture set up for this. I have a couple of ideas how to show it.
7. To help with gender correction (I wanna be a man/woman) - Have
talked about this one, for sure!
8. To spy on someone - That's what the first episode will be about.
9. To go by a car from a car dealer - I can see that.
10. F2F wanna have sex with friends husband - I'm sure it would
11. Swap orgy (random swap with strangers) - We talked about
something like this. Obviously wouldn't show an orgy, I'm not
Stanly Kucbrick, and couldn't make that happen, but we have talked
about a group swap at a party and what might happen. That would be
a very difficult one to film due to the cast size and the
complicated script, but it's a possibility.
1)Beautiful woman making boat loads of cash renting our her body so
other could see what it felt like being beautiful. - Absolutely.
Talked a 'week in the life' episode of a beautiful woman who swaps
her body with different people. she'd be a like a "TaskRabbit"
who'd hire herself out to do jobs. Or it could be a man, and we see
all the different bodies he ends up with during a week of doing his
2) police investigations - We have one planned, who investigation
are more difficult because of people doing this.
3) Dance contests - That'd be a harder one to show, as you'd need a
bunch of dancers.
4) To visit other coiuntiries in the body of a native - We talk
about that in the first episode.
5) Marriage counciling, where couples experience life as each
other. - That has a lot of possibilities.
6( Kids& parents to undertsand each other - I don't if I want to
involve kids in these. They're just hard to work with and getting
them to act like adults is harder than you might think. Teenagers
is a possibility, but I don't have a story in mind at the moment.
7) criminals putin bodies of those they injured - We talked about
this one, but in many ways that a punishment for the victims, as
they are now the person who injured them.
Guest #9: So my plan is to use the Patreon per episode. So if you
were pledge $20, it would be $20 everytime I finished an episode.
I'm planning to spend 3 to 4 months per episode, so it might $60 to
$80 a year. But there'd be NO MONTHLY charge, just when I finished
Guest #10: I have been thinking about an episode that deals with
people or a person who are against body swapping. It would be more
of an observational episode of a person seeing everyone else doing
what they think is 'wrong'. Haven't put a lot of thought into it,
but it's worth exploring.
Bart: That's definitely a possibility, where someone needs to go to
an event, but there partner/spouse either doesn't want to go or
wouldn't fit in, so the man hires or gets a friend to swap with her
to go in her place. That's totally what the world would be like!
Not sure if there's a twist in there that gives it more of the
Black Mirror feel, but it's worth thinking about. I'm sure
something could happen, either with him or her that makes it
awkward after they switch back.
Fanjustthe: Thanks for asking. Yeah, I did have some health issues
that have kept me sidelined for most of this year. My blood
pressure has been out of control, so I got put on a medication that
basically made me a zombie. Had no creativity, was sleepy all the
time and could barely function. I was like this for about 6 months
until I got a new doctor who switched me to a better medication,
that didn't have those side effects and now I'm feeling super
creative and just want to make something. My transplant
functionality has been declining slowly, so I know I things are
going to get worse over time. I desperately want to make some
amazing videos while I'm still able to, so that's my goal and what
I'm going to do! Eventually I will need another transplant and
that's going to take time to recover, so I'll be out year once that
happens. Hopefully it's still years away, I don't want to waste the
time I have now. So any help anyone can give would be greatly

Going along with #10----maybe something like someone who is against
swapping, is swapped against their will, either purely
accidentally, or intentionally? So they'd REALLY hate being stuck
in another body until it's fixed, and like rants/raves to anyone
around how "they're not who they appear to be, this isn't the body
they want". Extra points if they end up in an attractive woman's
body, that draws unwanted attention... :)|

Hi James, I follow your work for quite some years now, ever since
when I discovered I was into body swaps! I'm excited to hear you
are planning to make this series. With me being a poor student, I
think I won't be able to support it though but I wish you good luck
with it and that you all are happy with the result (I'm sure it
will be amazing). Hope I can see them too someday.|
Keep on the good work and greetings from germany

Hey James, good to see you around again and this new thing does
sound interesting. A few questions I suppose. Do you have an idea
of the tone of this? Your stuff generally tends to be lighter but
would this be darker, vary by episode and such?|
One idea that I'd like to see (if you don't already have all of
them planned out) is the idea of someone hacking another person's
device to force a swap. Say a guy gets fired by his boss or passed
over for a promotion or some other bad thing happens to him. He
decides to get revenge by hacking the boss' device and with control
using it to open the app and perform a swap, or doing it to the
boss' daughter to torment them.
Actually will there be any age body swaps at all i.e. adult and
teenager, elderly and adult or teenager, etc.?
Anyway good luck with this. I can't really pledge anything at the
moment but perhaps when or if I have the extra money I'd be willing
to do it.

Would be cool with some impersonations. Like someone pretending
that they never swapped, are someone else other than who they were
before the swap, or had already swapped back. Playing around with
identity is fun.|

Ever since the film Xchange came out but only just touched on the
premise I’ve have loved to see the idea explored in more detail.
Will happily do patron once I’m back home in a week. Great stuff
James. Ps take a look at xchange if anyone has t seen it.|
