Linus Sandgren Says Working with High Output on American Hustle Was a "Very Happy and Smooth" Experience!
American Hustle Director of Photography Linus Sandgren spoke very highly of High Output and Charles River Studios in a recent article appearing in the January 2014 issue of American Cinematographer magazine entitled 'The Sting of the 70s' written by Mark Dillon.
Now living in the U.S., Stockholm native Linus Sandgren began his career in Swedish cinema. His first American feature film was with director Gus van Sant's Promised Land starring Matt Damon. Sandgren was the first cinematographer to work with van Sant following the death of DP Harris Savides, his long-time friend and colleague who had passed away on October 9, 2012.

Being a part of such a great annual tradition as this was an exciting and fun opportunity for the students involved.

High Output is pleased to announce the addition of the Arri M90 fixtures to our rental inventory. The Arri M90 introduces a new power class of 9000 W!
To close the gap between the M40/25 and the ARRIMAX 18/12, the M90 introduces a new power class of 9000 W. The unit is open-faced and very bright; it is also focusable from 16° up to 49°, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. ARRI technology partner Osram developed a new 9,000 W lamp for the M90, which is stable at 1,000 Hz and almost as small as the 6,000 W lamp that can alternatively be used. This allowed ARRI to design the M90 in a very compact housing, barely larger than the ARRISUN 60.
