As interviews go, not many are as exciting as Werner Herzog. A true icon of cinema, it was our pleasure to sit down with (virtually, of course) to discuss his latest venture, Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds. He was paired alongside co-director and frequent collaborator Clive Oppenheimer, a volcanologist (how cool is that word?) as we wanted to discuss this new project, and how they managed to succeed in ensuring it remained an entertaining, cinematic endeavour. In short – how did they make a doc about meteors not boring?
We discuss their working relationship, and also ask Herzog about his experiences as a filmmaker, and what this particular film added to what is a long list of incredible life moments, and moments we’re grateful he’s shared with us.
