First of all, there might very well be a reason for why we’re doing it like that. So, when you demand a different way, are you sure that you see the full picture?

More importantly, when Werner Herzog said that he wanted it done this way, he knew exactly *what* he wanted. And what he wanted to get out of doing it this particular way. He had a very clear vision of the result and the will to make it happen.

Can you answer these questions confidently and concisely?
