Should Brad Pitt ever need help with his next prank, some of the Jolie-Pitt kids might have a few handy tips.

In a new featurette for By The Sea, the new drama starring Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who also serves as director, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne can be seen getting up to no good on the romantic set off Malta. The kids manage to succeed in their pranks thanks to props like a slingshot, fake gun (used to wake dad up from his beauty sleep) and surely great advice from mother dearest.

“We can experiment and play,” Pitt says in the behind-the-scenes clip. “It’s oddly a safer environment than any set I’ve been on before, so we let loose.

Adds Jolie, who wrote the film after losing her mother Marcheline Betrand to cancer in 2007:

“When I was writing it, I never actually assumed we’d do it. So I wrote with a certain kind of freedom. Everybody knows that there’s never just the tragedy of life or the humor of life or the pure joy of life. Relationships have these extremes, you can absolutely madly love the same person you want to kill.”

By The Sea will make its world premiere at the AFI Fest on Nov. 5 before arriving in select theaters Nov. 13.
