Working on a television adaptation of a stage work - a performance, a concert or a show - is a challenge even for professionals with lots of experience.

The camera shots are determined by the proportions and size of the full-length human body, which is shot in a frame.

In video and television production, devices with constant light are used, which, unlike flashes, are able to illuminate a mise-en-scene for a long time.

Building a broad knowledge of the intricacies of multi-camera shooting is important for beginners.

Novice video mixers must work with a multi-camera mindset and experiment with different points of view, angles, movement and plans, to get a more professional art video product.

Before proceeding with the future stage project, the director of the television adaptation, together with the cameraman and the video mixer, must visit the filming location at the earliest possible stage so that the producer can identify and reserve the places that are most suitable for positioning all the cameras, having shooting points and camera optical capabilities in mind.

If it is possible to set up all the cameras and record the rehearsal, the team should undoubtedly take advantage of this, as it will test the workflow and ensure that everything works according to plan before the actual main performance and recording.
