How to Light a Film Studio with Novas: Stage Lighting Explained

Valentina and the Aputure team visit EVS Studios in Los Angeles to figure out two things – how many Novas it takes to light a 25’ white cyc, and how to light it to be as versatile as possible. We want EVS to walk away with a lighting setup that any production company that is looking to shoot an interview, product, lifestyle, fashion, or even music video can accomplish with just a few lighting adjustments. To prove that we can do both in the same lighting setup, the two concepts that we wanted to shoot were a high-key branded interview (think Verizon commercials) and a two-tone color music video.
