A still from the Super 8 footage that director Werner Herzog shot for a UVM film class shows his shadow. "You’re like, ‘Oh my god, he really made this. There he is,’” UVM Visiting Lecturer Peter Gruner Shellenberger says.
UVM students incorporated Herzog's footage into short Super 8 films that will be screened on Dec. 12.
Herzog sent detailed instructions to UVM Visiting Lecturer Peter Shellenberger about how his students should use the footage.
Undergraduate film students at the University of Vermont are preparing to screen films that incorporate unusual material: original footage shot by the celebrated German director Werner Herzog.
The student films include portions of a three-and-a-half minute reel that Herzog, best known for the documentaries Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, shot with a circa 1975 Super 8 camera this fall.
Herzog has stipulated that the films must be called "WHERE'S DA PARTY AT?", based on graffiti of the same phrase in the source footage he provided to the class.
