It was shot in Los Angeles and features several cameo appearances from Cage's Definitive Jux label-mates.When speaking on the making of the video, La Beouf said: "I'm 22 and I'm directing my favorite rapper's music video.According to a press release for the band, the video depicts "a man and woman locked in a never-ending cycle of addiction and desire". La Beouf co-starred with Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman in David Ayer's World War II-set film, Fury; filming began in September 2013, and the movie was released in October 2014.He also starred in the war-thriller film Man Down directed by Dito Montiel alongside Gary Oldman and Kate Mara.His next film was Eagle Eye, released on September 26.His performance received mixed reviews, with Josh Bell of Las Vegas Weekly saying he "makes a credible bid for action-hero status, although his occasional stabs at emotional depth don't really go anywhere." In February, La Beouf made his music video directorial debut, directing the video for "I Never Knew You", a single by American rapper Cage, from his third album Depart from Me (2009).The couple were spotted together in London this week, and a member of the paparazzi apparently got FKA twigs on the record by buzzing her up on her home’s intercom speaker.
In 2014, Cantor produced a music video based on this song.
In 2004, he made his directorial debut with the short film Let's Love Hate and later directed a short film titled Maniac (2011), starring American rappers Cage and Kid Cudi.
In 2007, La Beouf starred in the commercially successful films Disturbia and Surf's Up.
La Beouf later worked with Cudi and Cage on a short film inspired by their collaborative "Maniac", from Cudi's second album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Aside from directing the short film, which was titled Maniac (2011), La Beouf directed the music video for Kid Cudi's song "Marijuana", which he filmed at the 2010 Cannabis Cup.
La Beouf said production was only delayed two days after his accident because Bay made up for it by filming second unit scenes, and La Beouf recovered a few weeks earlier than expected, allowing him to return to the set.
