How can you set the exposure on the subject on a stage that has a spot light on him? When on automatic the metering seems to average the frame and the subject is over exposed in the video. What's the fix?

What camera do you have, giving us a little more info will aid in giving you the "fix".

Hi Denis, we can give more appropriate suggestions after knowing what you are using and a little about the scenes.

We ask you to please fill in your Nikonians profile so people responding can see what equipment you are using so their responses be more specific.
