Randy Scott Slavin began his directing career with music videos and had his first taste of the power of the internet in 2005 when his video for Group Sounds “Things Fall Apart” leaked and went “viral” crashing his server with over a million views in 2 day period. Since then he has garnered millions of eyeballs with his music videos, short films, and sketch comedy pieces. In early 2007, Slavin was chosen as one of the top 50 finalists from a worldwide search of over 12,000 to participate in the TV series entitled “On The Lot” which was the brain child of renowned filmmaker Steven Speilberg and reality tv Mogul Mark Burnett. Most recently Slavin started the production company VIDEE THIS! under which he directs music videos, sketch comedy, and viral pieces for companies such as MTV and Heavy.com. His most recent music video, Group Sounds "Temporarily in Love," won the Special Jury Award at the 2008 South By Southwest Film Festival.
