If there is list of filmmakers out there with plenty to teach about the art of cinema, Werner Herzog would have to be towards the top. Lucky for aspiring directors, he is doing just that.
Werner Herzog has announced he'll be hosting his fifth weekend-long "Rogue Film School" this August 22-25 in Los Angeles. Past seminars have taken place in LA, London, and New Jersey. If you think this is a standard Robert McKee-style seminar, you are dead wrong. Just take a look at this description from the release:
Some of the topics covered will be the art of lock picking. Traveling on foot. The exhilaration of being shot at unsuccessfully. The athletic side of filmmaking. The creation of your own shooting permits. The neutralization of bureaucracy. Guerilla tactics.
The program is limited to 65 participants. Applicants need to apply with a written application and short film submission by June 13. There is plenty more on the website.
