I attended Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School in Los Angeles last week. He accepted 45 students from around the world, and we spent three full days in intense lecture and discussion with the master himself. It was absolutely amazing. We discussed topics ranging from working with actors and writing scripts to picking locks and stealing cameras. He showed part of my short documentary “First and Loveliss” in class, and said that he found it insistently honest and penetrating as a character study.
