WERNER HERZOG TEACHES FILMMAKING
Werner Herzog is the only feature-film director to have made a film on all seven continents.

Once hailed by French filmmaker François Truffaut as "the most important film director alive,” in this 5+ hour MasterClass, Werner Herzog shares everything he’s learned over his 50 year career. A legendary dreamer both on and offscreen, Werner Herzog teaches everything from inspiration to pre-production to distribution.

I edited the entirety of Herzog's MasterClass, totaling 6 hours of finished film. During the process, I edited with Werner on his living room couch, and later produced a live Google Hangout during which Werner answered questions from film students around the world. To share the knowledge of my favorite filmmaker has been a truly humbling experience, and a highlight of my career.
