How to Apply to Werner Herzog’s L.A. Film School

How to Apply to Werner Herzog’s L.A. Film School

Attention, doc filmmakers: Werner Herzog is teaching a four-day film seminar in Los Angeles early next year.

It’s part of his Rogue Film School touring seminars and will take place in a hotel conference room January 20-23, 2012.

The class will be limited to a maximum of 65 participants, making for an intimate atmosphere and there are no academic requirements. Per Rogue Film School’s website, “The Rogue Film School will not teach anything technical related to film-making. For this purpose, please enroll at your local film school.” All you have to do is fill out a brief written application and submit a short film (on DVD) that you have directed yourself.

You have until December 3 to apply. Go here for the application.

This marks the second of Herzog’s seminars to take place in Los Angeles. Others have been held in New Jersey and London, UK.

During the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival where Herzog’s “Into the Abyss” world premiered, the director shared a few essential lessons from the program. Go here to see what they are.
