Werner leaves you with the words of a medieval mystic and wishes you luck on your journey.
I have a text I'd like to read for you. And the text is from the late medieval mystic, Thomas a Kempis-- a very important figure in deep thinking. A mystic. And it's in a film of mine. "It is only the pilgrims who in the travails of their earthly voyage do not lose their way. Whether our planet be frozen or scorched, they are guided by the same prayers, and suffering, and fervor, and woe." [MUSIC PLAYING] You may have guessed, meanwhile, that it is not Thomas a Kempis. I wrote this text. I did this. In a way, we have to leave things incomplete. Lots of things we haven't covered, but it would be ad nauseam just to have me there and trying to explain my craft. Thank you, and best of luck to all of you.
When the legendary director Werner Herzog was 19, he stole a camera and made his first movie. 70 films and 50 awards later, Werner is teaching documentary and feature filmmaking. In this film class, you’ll learn storytelling, cinematography, location scouting, self-financing, documentary interview techniques, and how to bring your ideas to life. By the end, you’ll make uncompromising movies.
I will take much from this class, but more than anything else, I will leave here with a renewed sense of courage and purpose.
Werner Herzog's unique and almost religous approach to film is breathtaking . He makes you realise your potential in no way anyone else ever could.
I've enjoyed the authenticity of Mr Herzog. Not just as a master sharing his craft, but also as a man, wrestling with insights into his own soul. It takes great courage to enter and stay in this business. It is more courageous still to express permanently what you do, and why.
