Rutger Hauer isn't the only one with a fancy film school. If you read our Film Issue interview with Werner Herzog, you might remember his teaser. He refused to reveal the name, stating that it was so good he had to trademark it first lest somebody swipe it from him. Well, we're happy to announce that Werner has announced that his Rogue Film School is open for business. It is not for bespectacled, beret-wearing sycophants who dress in black, as anyone familiar with the man's work might surmise. Instead it's for "those who have travelled on foot, who have worked as bouncers in sex clubs or wardens in a lunatic asylum, for those who are willing to learn about lock-picking or forging shooting permits in countries not favoring their projects."
The inaugural seminar takes place in early January inside an LA hotel conference room. It costs a pretty penny, but we're willing to bet you a shitting camel that the value is about 128,378 times better than actual film school and that you'll probably learn more from a weekend with Herzog than four years with some dumb asshole who ended up teaching because he or she was incapable of making movies for a living. Anyway, if you go, be sure to get in touch and let us know how it went.
