Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School – get a head start at Media Services

Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School is sort of a world roving version of Socrates’ Academy.

Number 8 of the school’s manifesto gives you an idea –
Related, but more practical subjects, will be the art of lockpicking. 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. Guerrilla tactics. Self reliance.

Number 11 is more accessible because all these movies are available at Media Services –
