History

History of Lobsters Are Weird

There's a well-documented phenomenon in which digital media students, in winter of their junior year, allow the anxiety of not being on a good senior project team to eclipse their preexisting social anxiety. These students, unaccustomed to basic social interaction, suddenly begin an unusual ritual of poorly planned meetings and alcohol consumption. When the dust has settled on this hodgepodge of mingling, the class divides itself into 10 smaller units. Lobsters are Weird is one such group. Formed and bonded by their love of technical animation and space, the team set out to produce a bio-pic about the life of Golden Globe winning actor Steve Buscemi. When Buscemi's agent refused to put the Lobsters in contact with the actor, they went back to that space idea.

About Honu:

Over the past several months, the Lobsters have been hard at work creating Honu, a non-narrative voyage through outer space. The project emphasizes the beauty of the final frontier through composition, scale and color. To bring a unique spacecraft and more than 10 imaginary landscapes to life, our team is using a myriad of industry-standard production tools, including The Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite, Adobe Creative Cloud, The Foundry Production Collective, Black Magic's DaVinci Resolve, and SideFX Houdini. Honu will be premiering Sunday, June 11th, at International House, Philadelphia.
