Shia LaBeouf acts out 36 mini-movies with new project

Posted on

Since April 20, Shia LaBeouf has been tweeting nonsensical sentences each day at the same time—and it turns out these phrases are all from his latest project, a collaboration with the Fine Arts students from London’s Central Saint Martins titled #INTRODUCTIONS.

Here’s how it works: 39 students gave LaBeouf some directions for what would be seconds-long short films, then the Fury actor performed the scripts in front of a green screen. The directions include how LaBeouf should present himself—sitting, standing, or, in one case, standing on his head—and what he should say. Scripts range from a conversational monologues about jellyfish to tear-filled rants, and the end result is a 30-minute video that could double as an audition tape for LaBeouf.
