Jaden had difficulty shooting some of the emotional moments from the film Life in the Year. The actor plays the part of Daryn, who grapples with a storm of emotions after standing up to his parents. Mitja Okorn, the film director, spoke to Cheatsheet about how he had many problems in shooting those specific scenes involving his parents’ shadows
Mitja Okorn, the film director, spoke to Cheatsheet about how Jaden had many problems shooting those specific scenes involving his parents’ shadows—-Will Smith and Jada Smith. Okorn talked to the portal and spoke about how he helped the actor phase out the problems and produce the scenes.
Jaden had trouble filming an emotional scene?
The film Life in the Year is from Smith’s production house called Overbook. As a result, Will and Jada will always be on set tracking and directing it. The film director said that Jaden’s suggestions for those scenes would mostly come from talking to his father, Will Smith. Mitja said he loved to have Will on the set and the inputs he got. There was, however, one scene where Jaden was having trouble while acting.
The director said that Jaden’s scene stood up to his mother in the film was one of the most challenging locations for him. In the show, Jaden’s character falls in love with Isabelle, played by Cara Delevingne. He quickly figures out that she has cancer and that she might eventually end her life. This starts to affect his concentration, and Daryn, played by Jaden, fails many college applications. His father’s conduct is disturbed in the film, and he’s trying to deter him. His mother, too, prevents Jaden from slipping into a bad phase in the movie.
Should behave like a rebel.
Okorn remembers a particular scene where the mother shouts at Jaden to avoid going anywhere, so they have a big fight. However, Jaden used to find it extremely difficult to film such specific scenes.
The director said Jaden was well trained. He would always pause when his mother asked him to do what was not needed on the scene. The scene determined that Jaden should behave like a rebel, step out, or fight.
However, Jaden would find it challenging and would always say to Mitja that he would stop if the older adult were to say so as a show. After multiple shots, however, Jaden sat down to help him appreciate the psyche of the character he was portraying.
He told him that his love and admiration for the elders. His character in the film was at loggerheads with his parents. He will have to revolt and fight against them. Eventually, Jaden had the scene right, and it was added to the movie, which is now streaming to Amazon Prime Video.
