greatest thing I can take away from this and I think it reflects to most of us - is the fact that we often punch in more hours than it's agreed upon just to get it looking as good as we want it not as average that the client is paying for...

It's the same thing that happened to 38 Studios when they fell apart.

Having already watched this, I can confirm that it hit on quite a few points I already knew, plus a few I hadn't even considered before. In either case, it's a very eye-opening documentary about the sorry state of VFX work and the transient life style of those people who do the work. Don't get into this kind of work if you want anything more than the pleasure of doing what you love...because you sure as hell won't get much of anything else.
