"After winning the 25k Grant from the Vimeo Awards, Director Eliot Rausch partnered with Producer Mark Schwartz and the Dreamers of Los Angeles to create LIMBO. This 19 minute film exposes the lives of 3 undocumented students, living in the US without legal status. Never having touched a camera, the 3 students were gifted with a small handycam and trained for half a day by Lukas Korver and Matt B. Taylor. They were asked to film everyday for 3 months. Through their lens, this is their story."

It's so amazing to see the wonderful footage that can be shot by someone who isn't constantly thinking about the aesthetics or the process. It really makes for a natural, raw, emotive, and real piece.  I am brought back to the first time when I picked up a camera, and how much of a struggle it is today to get back to that mindset.
