We're looking at how these Flaat picture styles work in the real world, and this is Example 8, a great music video shot entirely on Flaat by Lucas Pfaff: 8-Bit Chess Club - Tetris.
Before shooting, he said he needed to get as much DR as possible for a shot inside a train, with visible (and not blown-out) exterior. Then, after shooting, Lucas tweeted:

Want to shot in bright sunlight with a blue, cloudless sky and usable shadow-areas? Try Flaat from @similaar - it's remarkable...!

Then, after releasing the video, he complained:
was hard to grade inside the subway, hate the lighting-conditions :/

I think I know what he means: those train shots at moments go a bit towards the dead-midtones look of HDR photography. But hey: he was shooting in a near-HDR setting!!
He went head-on for some very difficult shots, and got great results.
The whole video is very cool. Enjoy!
