We put Gerald Undone’s recommended exposure settings for S-Log3 to the test! He suggests setting C1 to Std+Range 55% for 18% gray, then using C2 Lower Limit 94+ to check for highlight clipping, resulting in an ETTR of +1.66. Previously, we just used the C2 setting by itself but often found it difficult to recover highlight detail.

The collar of the tee shirt is a little hot, most likely because we went a little overboard pulling up the blue channel. The outro footage was processed in the same way, only we increased temperature, boosted saturation in the mids while decreasing it in the shadows and highlights and added grain for an even grittier look.
