Behind the Production With 35LIVE!: Netflix is a Joke Fest

Go behind the scenes of Netflix is a Joke Fest with Grove Street Productions. Executive Producer Casey Spira describes his history using PRG’s proprietary 35LIVE!® technology to shoot comedy specials from Pete Davidson, David Letterman, Adam Sandler and Norm Macdonald’s final comedy special.

Scalability with venue sizes, the shallow depth of field from a 35 millimeter sensor camera, cinematic image capture and control room customization are all benefits of the system mentioned by Spira, Director of Photography Jay Lafayette, PRG Account Executive Gary Shinn, and PRG’s National Product Manager for Camera, Pete Schneider.

The 35LIVE! system has been used in countless concerts, fashion shows, theater events, and comedy specials. Notable work includes the Pepsi Halftime Show, Bad Bunny’s SoFi Stadium show in October, and Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 23 runway show in New York City.
