Let Werner Herzog teach you

"The Rogue Film School is not for the faint-hearted; it is for those who have traveled on foot, who have worked as bouncers in sex clubs or as wardens in a lunatic asylum.… How do you sensitize an audience? How is space created and understood by an audience? How do you produce and edit a film? How do you create illumination and an ecstasy of truth? Related, but more practical subjects, will be the art of lockpicking. Traveling on foot. The exhilaration of being shot at unsuccessfully."
From the online prospectus for Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School

  1. Oh to be at the " How to succeed at being shot at unsuccessfully" class.
    I adore Werner Herzog - that gentle lilting voice he has, even toned as he narrates why he cooked and ate his own shoe as if it's completely normal!
    And he's right about desensitized audiences too.
