We're looking at how these Flaat picture styles work in the real world, and this is Example 3, and by a long shot the best one so far.
It's a short film by Cloud in the Sky Studios titled Chasing Liberty.
Fully shot on Flaat_10p on a 60D. When asked about the color grading work, he said:

"I ran a color correction pass through it but it was dead easy. I played with the curves (crushed the lift a bit) and added a slight grain for a retro feel."

For the most part, Flaat is working here as I expected: low noise, nice skin tones, easy to grade. But it also gave me some excellent surprises, like highlight rolloff, which is looking very, very nice (I expected it to be better than with other options, because the curve in the highlights is a lot smoother, but I hadn't dared to go this far with it, and now I see I should have).
