Lillian Mauser-Carter was born on a couch in Dayton, Ohio. Lillian has always had a passion for many types of art and moved to Chicago to further her education at the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago for Digital Filmmaking and Video Production. While in school, Lillian developed many projects to help her learn and discover creative ways of storytelling. She specifically took interest to documentary filmmaking when developing her short documentary, “Learn Free”, which is about children called unschoolers that do not attend school, or have a curriculum, but learn the daily needs to be human by living life and through interests. She is using this short film as a promotional piece to raise funding to develop a feature length film. Besides writing proposals to gain funding, Lillian also works full time as an Associate Producer working on commercials, promotional videos, and web videos. In her free time, Lillian works on projects for Subconscious Development Motion Project in which she co-founded and is developing into a multi-media production company.
