HoloRed Estelar Sevilla

HoloRed Estelar Sevilla (in English Stellar HoloNet Seville) is a cultural association involved in all Star Wars fields. HoloRed Estelar Sevilla (from now on HES) organizes events on its own, devoted only to Star Wars, like exhibitions, lightsaber choreographies, lectures and miscellaneous activities, and it collaborates with another Star Wars followers that request its cooperation.

HistoryEdit

The fan club started in 1999, after Episode I premiere in Seville. In the beginning HES did without board of directors but the association's growth forced to change our structure and, in July 2003, HES was registered as an association in the Spanish Junior Association Registry; five years later HES was registered as a Cultural Association.

MembershipEdit

HES members do not need to own a Star Wars costume to be accepted. They meet every two weeks in a public park near the Seville city center to plan about the events and other matters. Paying a symbolic monthly fee everyone helps HES coffers' solvency. Members are allowed to surf by three hidden sub-forum, to take part in HES internal activities and they have other advantages like, for example, discounts when buying in some comic/freak-stuff shops in Seville.

HES have a strong unity and friendship component because deep down HES is a heterogeneous group of friends, joined by a common hobby: Star Wars. That is why many of HES members usually do things together like going out for a drink or going to the cinema.

Most of HES members live in the capital of Seville (Seville city, where some scenes of Episode II where filmed in Seville's Plaza de España) but other ones live in nearby towns and other cities. As of July 2008, HES has fifty members aged thirteen to forty and five of them are part of the board of directors which is chosen each year by majority vote.

ActivitiesEdit

Activities done by HES go from Episode II premiere to Episode III's, round tables, exhibitions, conventions, etc.

PremieresEdit

HES started getting bigger with Episodes II and III premières. The association managed different events to have a popular reception with, for example, selling the cinema tickets, getting free soft drinks to viewers who went to the première on Star Wars costumes or setting an exhibition up inside the cinema's theater.

FanzineEdit

HES Fanzine #9 cover by Gardek, featuring Gerald Home.

HES had published a non-official magazine since its foundation. Nine issues were printed and sold in local comic shops. However other projects took priority due to the time needed to create a good fanzine and new issues did not have a periodic release (writers do not simply copy-paste wiki/book/Internet information, they elaborate the information analyzing all data resources as possible to make good quality articles).

A few issues ago HES decided stop printing the FanZine because the relation cost/benefit were not good. So now it can be downloaded (including the last issues) for free from HES web site in Adobe Acrobat Reader format.

One of the issues was dedicated to Gerald Home and in Celebration Europe a copy of it was given him as a present. HES keeps a signed copy for itself.

JEHESEdit

JEHES, in Spanish, stands for "Jornadas y Exposiciones HoloRed Estelar Sevilla" ("Conferences and Exhibitions HoloRed Estelar Seville"). HES organized a huge event in a civic center. It had different rooms for the exhibition, games, conferences and other activities. JEHES are the main event of HES association and all members get involved in it during a complete year giving their best to get a successful event.

  • The First HES Exhibition: A Generation of Dreams opened on October 6, 7 and 8, 2004 in Virgen de los Reyes Center of Seville.
  • JEHES II was celebrated on November 22, 26 and 27, 2005, together with the 6th Seville Comic & Illustration Meeting.
  • JEHES III was on October 20, 21 and 22, 2006, on Civic Center 'Tejar del Mellizo' in Seville. More than 15 different activities were done for all ages. It was recorded more than 1,100 visiting people from different parts of Spain. It is a must to say that the 501st Legion went with HES members to the Sevillian Valme's Hospital to give presents to ill children.
  • JEHES IV was on October 5, 6 and 7, 2007 de Octubre de 2007 on Civic Center 'Tejar del Mellizo' in Seville. Again, HES chose a civic center to create a bigger Star Wars event. Changing some activities, keeping other ones and adding new ones, HES got again a high audience response.

Fan filmsEdit

The Sith MissionEdit

The Sith Mission is a fan film still in process. A short 30' film script that related how Darth Vader killed the exiled Jedi was written down during the 2004 summer. It would happen between Episode III and Episode IV. The filming process is finished but the post-production work is not. This experience has been very useful to gain new members and to improve HES member's costumes.

Round tablesEdit

On September 26, 2004, HES organized a round table in a comic shop, where all the participants could debate about the incoming release of the Original Trilogy DVD.

PartiesEdit
