Brian Hogan is a Connecticut born gay filmmaker who always knew he wanted to be in show business. From the age of eight he was telling friends and family what he was going to do when he became rich and famous, and how he planned to change the world.
Brian worked as a missionary after graduating high school in 1997. He was stationed on a non-governmental hospital ship for three and a half years that traveled regularly between West Africa, South Africa and Western Europe. During his time overseas he visited over thirty countries, giving him a broad picture of the world as it truly is, not simply the way the American mainstream media would have us believe.
In 2002 Brian’s travels landed him at Oberlin College at age 23, where he pursued his love for film and TV, co-creating a multi-media production called Real World: Oberlin and directing numerous plays and short film projects. After college he moved to West Hollywood where he spent a few years writing screenplays at a Starbucks before switching gears and opening a Medical Marijuana Dispensery in 2010.
Seven years later in 2017 Brian returned to his natal ground of CT to attend a graduate film program at Sacred Heart University. During grad school Brian wrote and/or directed six short films, including Skip School & Play Along, created a web series and completed a feature screenplay that he began ten years earlier in a Los Angeles coffeehouse. That screenplay, Super Hoax, was selected as 1 of 20 Finalists out of 700 screenplay submissions in 2019.
Brian lives with his sister and her family in Stratford CT, and now manages the film school from which he just graduated as Valedictorian and Lamda Phi Eta Communications Honor’s Society Inductee. Brian is proud to be an alumni of Sacred Heart University's Film & Television Production Master's Program (FTMA).
