Without doubt Werner Herzog is an renegade, in the truest sense of the word. As a youngster, he taught himself how to make films. When no one would fund his movie-making habit, he started his own production company at age 17. When he needed to get through the Peruvian jungle for filming Fitzcarraldo, he forged official-looking documents for safe passage (they worked).
For every film, he did a thousand things to get the shot. He once won a poetry contest four times by entering under five different names, and directed major operas when he couldnâ€™t read music.
Over the course of his career, the legendary filmmaker has doen it all, both as a documentarian and a director of fiction films. He has built a reputation for himself for his ability to have a distinctive voice in each of his films.
French filmmaker FranÃ§ois Truffaut once called Herzog â€œthe most important film director alive.â€
Werner Herzog said:
â€œFilm School is way too expensive. You can learn the essentials of filmmaking, on your own, in two weeks.â€
And with that statement he started a frenzy among indie filmmakers everywhere. So when a master like Werner Herzog holds a masterclass where he shares his knowledge of filmmaking and storytelling, itâ€™s most definitely a class worth paying attention to.
