Life by Lobster is a 55-minute documentary that takes you inside the lives of five young lobster fishermen determined to pursue this proud traditional vocation against steadily mounting obstacles.
Contrasting the stark beauty of the Downeast Maine seacoast with the stark reality of earning a living there, Life by Lobster, a documentary by independent filmmaker Iain McCray Martin takes you inside the lives of five young lobster fishermen determined to pursue this proud traditional vocation against steadily mounting obstacles.
Co-produced by LA television director J. Miller Tobin (Gossip Girl, Num3ers, CSI) and Maine-based Opera House Arts, LBL was recently selected as part of the Maine International Film Festival’s “Best of 2009” collection and is partially funded by the Perfect Storm Foundation, among others.
LBL features a driving soundtrack from respected and rising Atlanta folk/blues talent Joe McGuinness (2008 Atlanta Blues Challenge Solo/Duo winner) with additional tracks from international blues legend Sean Costello, the Wood Brothers (Amazon.com’s #1 pick for folk music in 2006) and go-go surf-psychedelic foursome El Cobra Negro.
Dock-u-mentaries is co-produced by the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center and the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park.
