Superpel- youtube video by Matt Baya “Who would have guessed that out on Star Island on the Isles of Shoals, 10 miles off the coast of NH, mild mannered island staff member (aka Pelican) Jeremy Taylor had powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. This is the 8 minute silly trailer, produced in one weekend on a whim.”

Joe Knows– youtube video featuring Joe Watts, Star Island’s incoming CEO, showing his knowledge of staff jobs when he was a teen, also by Matt Baya “Joe Knows almost every job on Star Island. Starring Joe Watts. Taped on or around 1989 / 1990 by Matthew Baya & Alec Lowry. Since Joe’s now Mr. Star Island we provide this in an effort to remind him of his humble beginnings.”
