Founder / Producer and Host of ‘Stardust Drive Podcast’ / Head Video Editor
William is a graduate of both the Journalism program at Humber College, and film and television at Sheridan College. When he’s not busy scouring social media websites and watching other people’s lives, he’s works a pretty excited job as a Broadcast Associate. He has convinced most of his friends that he’s the Canadian equivalent of Spiderman. He is the regular host of the Stardust Drive Podcast, and brings his background of news-related content to the cast. William provides the voice of Red Squad leader “Lincoln” in the Halo Reach machinima mini-series, Squadron 1337, as well as the voice of “Trent Legostambos” in a Sims 2 machinima called Crystal Cove.

Anthony is the regular funny-man and source of many jokes on the podcast – many of which he cannot recollect. Not only does he play games, but he creates them. A graduate of video game programming at Humber College, Anthony left his job slicing and serving up meats at a grocery store and found a very different living as a corporate telemarketer selling pens. His earliest memory of gaming involves playing Super Mario 3 with his sister. His afro probably houses other small afros. He enjoys loud and scary death metal music, setting himself on fire, and the occasional table-top RPG. Did I mention he’s a funny guy? Anthony provides the voice of Blue Squad leader “Innes” in the Halo Reach machinima mini-series, Squadron 1337.

A recent graduate of Visual and Digital Arts at Humber College, Carter is looking ahead to continuing his education and pursuing a potential career drawing concept art for animation and video games. He is an avid Starbucks lover, and writes and illustrates his own series called “The Asakura Chronicles”. He plays an abnormal amount of Pokemon Puzzle League to pass the time. Carter is a regular co-host of the Stardust Drive Podcast and brings his touch of creativity to the table. His laughter is rather unique. Carter provides the voice of “Dex” in the Halo Reach machinima mini-series, Squadron 1337.

Chris is definitely the most modern gamer aficionado of the podcasters, immersing himself into such titles like Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, Battlefield and Rock Band during his high school years. Chris is a very outgoing personality, and tends to piss off Anthony by getting lost in his own thoughts or staring into space during the podcast. He secretly dislikes Will, but really, he loves him like a brother. If anything, Chris may or may not be the spark the lights Anthony’s fire, and the two of them make each other laugh and are the initiators of many of the jokes on the podcast. Chris is also an avid wearer of hats. He provides the voice of blue team soldier “Leeroy” in the Halo Reach machinima mini-series, Squadron 1337. Also, he’s sort of addicted to Starbucks.
Favorite Games: 1. Magic: The Gathering (XBLA), 2. Super Smash Bros. series, 3. Left 4 Dead series, 4. CoD Modern Warfare series, 5. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun
