In a galaxy far, far away....

An imperial biker scout finds himself lost and alone in the middle of Endor. Last thing he remembers is a young rebel throwing him off his speeder bike. Now, everything seems too quiet... except for those weird sounds, like fierce hungry little creatures stalking him from above... 

With no Empire to serve, TB-404's purpose in life seems to be gone. But he will witness, among the trees, something that will shake his deepest ideals and will change his life forever.   

Even ashes were once light...

What is "Seed of Light"?

Remember one of those imperial bikers who were part of the classic chase scene through the forest of Endor in Return of the Jedi? Some of them clearly turned into sparks as they speeders blasted against trunks and stumbs, but others didn't. 

Well, this is the story of one of them. 

"Seed of Light, A Star Wars Collateral Story" is an original script based on the Star Wars Universe, its characters and its main plot. It is a 19 pages short film that takes place mainly –but not only– in the fictional forest moon of Endor, and tells a story of identity: our purpose in life defines who we truly are? Or is it the other way around?

Duty versus emotions. Living with fear versus embracing our own destiny. Those are 'Seed of Light' themes, the very heart of the conflict that our main character will suffer.

In a vast, hostile galaxy, he will have to find his life's sense... or loose it all.

Cinematography & color grading tests.

We have been working on the project since March, building team, scouting for locations, designing the visual feel, characters, story tone; making shotlists, storyboards, concept art; discussing ways and tools to shoot, looking for the right cast and we even have original music already, apart from the teaser trailer Original Soundtrack. 

We tend to re-check every aspect that can be improved, and maintain balance between viability and ambition. The story may look easy to shoot –apparently one character, one location– but truth is that it gets bigger and more exciting as plot moves along. 

As we don't want to spoil anything, we've made a teaser trailer which was born from cinematography tests on location. A hint of what TB-404 will have to deal with... 

What is "A Star Wars Collateral Story"?

We are filmmakers exploring the Star Wars Universe, and we got a fan feeling about this...

"Seed of Light" is part of the Collateral Story Project: our own brand of Star Wars fan films, made by passionate fans using their professional experience and the best tools as possible. Our goal is to keep telling good stories the best way we can, because we simply love Star Wars Universe, we got some nice ideas and we enjoy making them real.  

We are based in Canary Islands (Spain), known for their amazing natural beauty, from volcanic landscapes that look like black rocky battlefields to endemic tropical forests, wild windy cliffs or neverending bright beaches. Precisely that is what is causing, since some years ago, that many production companies choose to come here to film –from small projects to Hollywood blockbusters–, such as Marvel, Netflix, HBO or Disney

An important part of "Solo, A Star Wars Story" was filmed here and Marvel's "Eternals" is coming this October. The Witcher TV series finished filming here a couple of months ago. There are plenty of examples that inspire us to show our islands as potential part of any fantasy world we can imagine –or any planet needed. 

It is our way to welcome and answer to all that movie magic happening here.

You can check our projects, pictures, news and everything related to the whole project in our accounts of YouTube, Instagram or Facebook

Join the team!

But let's talk about numbers. 

This project, as any other, cannot be fed just by passion and happy ideals. As people who work in the audiovisual market, we know the process, the costs and we have developed a proper production plan. We have managed to get some of the material and other elements we need already, but we still got an important amount of costs to confront.

4.000 € (4.493 USD / 3.395 GBP / 5.989 CAN) will allow us to fulfill the project as it is right now, with no restrictions or script changes that may affect the story. 

That's why we need your support. Helping to fund something is, as we see it, being part of the team. As we want to keep it clear and honest, we will post information about production process –including funds evolution– fresh and updated. We are working in order to reach our goal: release the short film before Star Wars, The Rise of Skywalker is premiered. As we got a clear deadline, we are much more efficent and focused. 

So we invite you to be part of this project, one way or another. It is meant not for profit –of course not, Mr. Disney and Miss Lucasfilm!– but to be shared and enjoyed by all. Hope you like it, thank you very much for your time and consideration and, of course...

Risks and challenges

This is the first time a Star Wars Collateral Story project uses crowdfunding to be produced. As we are looking forward to develope new stories, characters and worlds, it is important for us to properly analyze viability trough this kind of financing.

It will teach us about Star Wars fans' interest on new fan films and storytelling work, and will surely affect the kind of stories we'll write in the future.

We offer you a planned trip from Tenerife to Fuerteventura that includes visiting National Park of Teide –set for movies like Bourne, Clash of the Titans and one of our fanfilms: Last Trial, A Star Wars Collateral Story–, photoshoots in some of the wonderful locations along the Island –from Anaga (where Game of Thrones spinoff is to be filmed) to Las Lagunetas (where "Seed of Light, A Star Wars Story" will be filmed) and, of course, "Savareen" with Chewbacca himself.

    There will be a video report about the whole trip. Please, email us to know more.
