Film School Stories

Werner Herzog

Though we may be film school rejects, one person who definitely didn’t get turned away at admissions when he signed up for classes was Werner Herzog. The director has been an artist in residence at Dartmouth College for the past semester, working with film students on their projects and giving screenings and seminars on his own films. Now, it seems that Herzog college-hopped over to the University of Vermont for a special exercise in student filmmaking  — as in he’s making his own student film. University of Vermont professor Peter Gruner Shellenberger, a visiting lecturer in film and photography, took some of his students up to Dartmouth to hear Herzog speak at one of his screenings. In a surprisingly bold move, Shellenberger brought with him a Super-8 camera preloaded with film and presented it to the director like some kind of holy offering (presumably down on one knee), and asked him to make a film for his class.
