Your boss was happy with you spending at least a week extra working to correct a mistake you made during a shoot
A mistake we both made, the DIT and myself. He didn't realize the LUT for certain ISO needed to be different then the other ISO. So we just had to re-process those shots with a new LUT.
No my boss was not happy and he tried to go after my friend the DIT, but I told him not to and I just re-rendered those clips on a different box. I have three computers, so it didn't slow us down at all and in the long run, nobody knew but my boss.
The job was delivered on time, the client was happy and I learned a lot on that last shoot. I just don't like the workflow, XAVC 4k support for automatic sound syncing is not supported, I don't like the cameras complicated menu system, I don't like the highlight clipping issues (better on the F55), I don't like the restrictions in certain modes and I'm not in love with Sony's desire to always have a "white" image. If anything my rant hasn't changed and the mistakes on set didn't effect the finished product.
is also OK with you just walking into a shoot totally unprepared and the client didn't mind the extra time and expense spent in post (assuming you didn't just eat the cost and not charge the client) for a sub standard product? All of this on a shoot that was so low budget you couldn't afford a day extra rental to test the gear.
I was plenty prepared. I had used the FS7 and F5 on previous shoots, I knew that I needed to light flat, I knew I needed to protect my highlights more then a Red or Alexa. I knew I had a lot of speed with not much noise. I got the right lenses, the right accessories, I even hired out of my budget, (money that could have gone to me) a Sony specialist to INSURE there would be no problems on set. We were all set and again, the client was happy in the end, even if I felt the end result wasn't good.
