I was hired to take a product that people had been very unhappy with for three years running and turn the visuals, audio and stage set-up to the levels expected by a “real” awards show. My work focused on a full graphics package that could be used both for broadcast on TV and for the live stage show for the people attending. These visuals included lower thirds, nominee, sponsor and winner animations, stage loops etc. Anything you see or hear on the MMA Awards 2011 was likely done single-handedly by myself. I also composed, performed, produced and mastered 30 original tracks in just two weeks that could be used worldwide, royalty free. The World MMA was broadcast nationwide on FOX.

CHRIS “MUG5” MAGUIRE | Résumé Vice President Creative Director / Multimedia Specialist

Lower East Side, New York, NY // 646-713-7170 // chris@altsounds.com // helloiamchris.com A Vice President Creative Director capable of producing hi-end work, to tight time-frames, both nationally and internationally, whatever the required medium (music, design, film, photography, art and writing). A hands on executive, I am as capable leading a team to success as I am being the team - being able to take projects from concept to completion single handedly if the need presents itself.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// CURRENT PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

Heavy Inc, New York, NY

Vice President of Integrated Marketing and Creative | February 2011 – Present In February 2011 Heavy called on my expertise and creativity to help bring them back to their past successes but in a new and fresh way. Previously known for their original video programming, Heavy had lost it’s way, being just another blog doing little but aggregating YouTube videos and Google Images when I joined. Heavy needed to bring back their mojo... desparately. Since taking over the position of Vice President of Integrated Marketing and Creative at Heavy my successes have been vast. We ideated, created and branded two original internet TV shows that, when combined generate a healthy 1-2 million unique viewers each month. The first and most notable of which is Fight Day, a UFC pre-show which broadcasts live from every UFC pay-per-view event wherever it is taking place in the world. Fight Day has conducted its live programming in many cities across the USA and Canada and has even graced the shores of Brazil and Japan. The Movie Show is the second success; a weekly show broadcast on the internet and into Barker Channels at home, The Movie Show is a co-branded show with On Demand whose intention is to showcase and highlight all the latest movies available to watch On Demand in a fun and quirky way. Whilst still gaining momentum, The Movie Show is inking deals with distribution partners like AOL to increase the internet viewership dramatically. QUICK STAT: Fight Day generated 55% of Heavy’s 2011 income currently making Fight Day Heavy’s most important asset. Other key roles include ideating and creating Integrated Marketing ideas and generating key art & collateral for sales pitches, many of which helped generate 10’s of millions of dollars in revenue for Heavy in 2011. Social acquisition was another important facet, my biggest success being the increase of Heavy’s Facebook Fan Page Likes, from 8K when I started to almost 50K just 18 months later. This was done through clever, fan gated contesting with partners such as Howard Stern, Pearl Jam, Gaspari plus many others. Due to my varied skillset, we were also able to wear the agency hat on multiple projects in 2011 too. Our work creating such a buzz that we were chosen to take over the work of that project from the Agency. An example of this was the Hometown Throwdown Harley-Davidson campaign which saw our work becoming the official work used to promote the campaign.

Altsounds Ltd, UK

Owner and Editor in Chief | Dec 04 – Present As owner, founder and Editor in Chief of AltSounds.com my roles vary on a daily basis, from accounting one day to CEO the next and Creative Director the day after. Recently completing V8 of the AltSounds website, this site iteration has proven to be the most successful and well received to date. Managing the productivity of 50 writers & photographers and 5 editors, I work daily to inspire them to create engaging articles that will travel far and wide across the web. The success of this work sees bands promoting our articles and features across their Social Media networks on a daily basis, which, in turn increases our user awareness and secures us a healthy 1-1.5 million unique users from across the world each month. Recently implementing page skins and moving our ad serving from DFP to Open X, we have found great success in monetizing AltSounds through alternative channels by thinking outside of the box. Determined to create a company that breaks all the traditional boundaries placed on business we have achieved a great amount in it’s 8 year existence. AltSounds is one of the most popular music websites in the UK beating giants such as Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Q and others in terms of traffic. These results all circle back to the quality of content produced daily by my excellent team of writers. Strict editorial standards help ensure that all our articles read excellently whilst achieving the best SEO possible. Not a bad achievement considering every single person working on AltSounds does so in their spare time...including myself!

MORE INFO ABOUT ALTSOUNDS: In 2004, I designed and built the popular and highly respected musical opinions website Altsounds.com and have taken it from obscurity to being one of the top 35K websites on the internet, with pure drive and no external financial backing. Successfully building music industry connections across the globe, mixed with physical, web and print design development, creativity and production of new multimedia features, UI’s, editorial, viral material and mail-outs to name but a few. AltSounds Ltd is an all encompassing media company that offers services as diverse as band management, promo and live photography, graphic design services, music production, mastering, remixing, editing, PR, editorial etc. My work with AltSounds Ltd holds me in high esteem with my peers both in the USA and the UK.
