working on videos

I'm currently working on the wedding updo and bridal makeup video.  But as I'm working on it, I'm finding myself in a difficult spot.  I've been getting many requests lately, and most often the emails are at odds with on another.  For example:  one email said that I should only reserve closeups for hair falling down, and in another, a person requested more closeups of everything.  For face shaving, some people told me that the barber should only apply lather with a brush.  Others said that lather is best applied by hand.  A couple people want to see more B&W/sepia videos; others say color only.  The list goes on and on.  It's getting to the point where I don't know where to start or how to proceed anymore.  Requests are fine, but when people say it "should" be done this way, I just want to give up because in another email, somebody else will say that it really "should" be done another way.  

Whew, and I thought a regular 9-5 job was tough!

I know someone might say that I should just make several different videos from one.  Many customers are from Greece, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, and etc.  By having several different videos from one will confuse  those whose English isn't that good.  (And those whose English is good, but don't always have time to read everything.  lol, I'm one of those from time to time).

I guess the only thing I can say is I'm sorry.  I know I won't be able to please everyone.  I will have to do what I think looks best; my editing and filming style is my own.   Just like any brand of food, it'll taste different than other brands, and will be recognizable that way.  You'll come to know it and become familiar with it.  That's how it's just going to have to be, otherwise I'm not going to be able to do this anymore.

Hey Kat..hope you are having an ENJOYABLE weekend, somehow. Despite all of these "experts" wanting only a certain way for you to do your videos, remember that great line as you put it, "you cannot please everyone, all the time". I am way guilty of trying to do this as a music event coordinator, and it truely can wear a person out quickly.
For me, it seems that you are so kind as to give wonderful preview photos and clips, so if those look interesting, chances are I will like it and purchase a download (or dvd). So far, I haven't been wrong on my guesses, nor certainly NOT disappointed with my purchases at all!!!
If people are REALLY wanting their videos specialized, I've noticed other sites charging extra for customized productions, so that may be something to consider if this proceeds as something that hangs onto your thoughts.
I hope so very much that all of this mess will not cause you to stop your totally special contributions- this person is very, very happy to have found your site!!!! Gene
