Joining The Chainsaw Mafia!September 13th, 2009 by Gabrielle Faust received No Comments »
I received fabulous news on Friday! The Chainsaw Mafia has hired me as their new Online PR Manager! I will be handling all social media networking, press release development, sales of ad space, etc. for the site. I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be joining this team of revolutionary, strong individuals who have done so much to carve a path for women in the boys club that is the horror genre! Currently, I am just beginning the process of getting up to speed on what the future marketing strategy will be for the rest of 2009 and 2010, but I can guarantee you that I am extremely motivated to take the site to the next stellar level of success. I have a very, very good feeling about this new career move; a blending of marketing and horror is what I call a “dream job” if there ever was one for me!
If you are unfamiliar with The Chainsaw Mafia here is the official Mission Statement:
The Mafia is family, much like the saw. The Chainsaw Mafia is for you, the artist, to use while creating within the horror genre. TCM is first and foremost a horror production company which specializes in film and splatter theater. The website also serves as a free networking tool for filmmakers everywhere and the Chainsaw Mafia Slaughter Shop, which holds everything and anything the horror filmmaker and lover could possibly want or need. TCM promotes independent filmmakers through its internet-based networking, discounted equipment rental, live performance, and annual Film Festivals with monetary awards. The Chainsaw Mafia was created and facilitated by women, who actively encourage progressive roles for women and men in all areas within the horror genre. Increasing and expanding boundaries of the genre with interactive theater, film, photography, and dance, The Chainsaw Mafia assists the men and women who create the horror genre to produce their art and promote themselves.
