New body swap movies and TV series of interest

It seems the interest in gender body swap movies and TV series come and go, but recently we have had quite a few you might want to take a look at.

This post is partly based on information shared over at Crossdream Life.

Body Swap (2011)

Timothy Morton has made an independent movie starring Ella Jordan and Jimmy Kustes, called Body Swap.

As is often the case with such movies the plot is there to explore gender differences and how men and women can learn to better understand each other. 

It is not made by a crossdreamer.

I see that it is found on Amazon, Tubi and Plex in some areas.


Swap Me Baby  (2022)

This is one seriously trippy movie, and not only because one of the main characters is using magic mushrooms.

Lily, business woman and control freak, ends up in bed with Philippe, a French mushroom tripping gigolo. So they get pregnant. Their therapist recommends a trip to a cabin in the woods, introducing them to a magic box that... you know, does magic. Hence the body swap.

I do not know what to make of the film. First and foremost it is some kind of crazy romantic comedy. But it has some serious undertones as well. 

I also made note of the fact that whoever made this film is a sucker for body swap movies in general. There is even a reference to the original Freaky Friday movie.

This is not a crossdreamer movie, either, but it is a lot of fun.

Using AI to create dream images of your other self

AIs like Dall-E, Stable Diffusion and Midjourney makes it possible to create close to photorealistic images of people. 

The better you are at describing the image you want to see, the closer the image is to your inner vision of what you'd like to see.

This means that it is now possible to generate an image of your inner dream girl for free or for a relatively low price.

I have been testing out Midjourney version 5 for a day or so, and is impressed with the results. Midjourney can now produce images that are nearly photorealistic, or – if you prefer – art inspired paintings and drawings.

It is possible to make images where people change gender, although you have to work a bit harder to make that work.

I have shared some more images over in the Crossdream Life forum. If you have done anything similar, please share your images there.

Interview with Miss Mako, the MTF movie hero

Erika Dapkewicz has probably been the most prolific MTF transformation movie maker ever. Many have enjoyed her many stories published over at YouTube

She has also made full length movies with MTF transformation components, like the Paradox Alice science fiction movie. 

Monika Kowalska has interviewed Erika over at her transgender heroines blog, where Erika also talks about how transgender fiction helped her come to terms with her own identity.

Monika: Your YouTube vlog attracted almost 150 thousand subscribers. What inspired you to create the Miss Mako persona?

Erika: Oh, that’s a story from a long long time ago. When I was little and suffering from gender dysphoria… I was transfixed by fantasy stories of men transforming into women.I used to write stories and draw comics of this when I was a little kid and kept doing it when I became a teenager. It was when the internet came around in the mid-1990s that I found a website called The Transformation Graphics & Story Archive. It was the first time I found similar people like myself doing some of the same stories and art. To not use my real name at the time I picked the handle of MAKO (after my love of sharks).

Everyone had a handle then. I started to gain a bit of an underground following. I was pushing myself to do these stories in different mediums. So I started to do my own animated shorts. Comics. Live-action shorts culminating in a live-action feature called, “Paradox Alice”. I was asked to start my own YouTube Channel and I did so in 2006. I also started to do my own Vlogs and you can see me pre and post-transition on those.

Over the years… more and more people followed me. And many suffering from gender dysphoria from around the world and sharing their stories with me. I changed my handle to MISS MAKO after I transitioned. I don’t nearly post much on the channel anymore. As again… I’m trying to have a better balance of being able to enjoy life as much as I can now.

Miss Mako is using her experience from making MTF transformation movies to editing Disney movies!

I'm a Killer Maid

Slash Film reports that the comic book "I'm a Killer Maid" is to be made into a TV series.

"I'm a Killer Maid" is a Chinese comic about a man who swaps bodies with his female housekeeper, only to find out that she is really an assassin. 

Watching the trailer I do not think we have to take this series to seriously.

The comic is available over at Kiss Manga.

How to use Faceapp and Remini to make a photo of your female self


Over at Crossdream Life Megan describes how you can use Faceapp and Remini to create an animated  photo of the way you would look as "the other gender".

The implementation of Artificial Intelligence has made the new crop of smart phone apps so much better at manipulating photos and animations. 

All you need is a clear photo of yourself (preferably your younger self), a smartphone and the apps.

Finally, a nonbinary femme Flash

 In the forthcoming DC Pride anthology queer writers will write queer stories about queer superheroes.

Den of Geek explains  that Lore, a non-binary artist with ADHD, has made a comic featuring the non-binary Flash of Earth 11.

Rosie Knight writes:

It was also the chance for Lore to tell a story about a non-binary hero who wasn’t defined by their appearance. That was something Lore could relate to as a non-binary person who loves makeup and colors but was worried about not being percieved as non-binary due to the connotation of those things being “femme.”
