Jake Gyllenhaal uses his hands to speak while at the screening of The Guilty at the DGA Theater on Friday night (September 24) in New York City.
In a new interview about his upcoming Netflix movie, the 40-year-old actor revealed that the crew relied a lot on Zoom to get the film made in just 11 days time.
“We were a slave to a particular technology, which was Zoom,” he explained to The Verge. “And that creates a rhythm. Even in our introductions, we would come on, and you don’t want to interrupt someone. That’s the essence of acting: rhythm.”
Jake continued, “When your rhythm is dictated to you by a technological thing, it leaves less room for something feeling alive. And we had to navigate that for the first four or five days. It was like someone took a quarter of a second out of my instinct. And if you’re a professional at whatever you do, acting in particular, rhythm is everything.”
“Ask a quarterback, you take a quarter of a second away from their throw, that means the difference between missing or not.”
The Guilty will be out on October 1.
