About Michael

“I became a screenwriter to be a storyteller. What I have since become is a teller of stories that feature compelling characters, imaginative circumstances and bottom line commercial viability.”

A message to producers, financiers, agents and others:

Michael Hogan is a former successful marketing exec and serial entrepreneur, turned screenwriter and director. Late to the game but well prepped to play, his scripts and latest short film have netted over 300 festival and competition awards–including more than 100 outright “Winners”–since 2019. In 2021, through his tiny production company Motu Productions, he directed his fourth short film, “Breaking & Entering”, a provocative and edgy dark drama based on his script that garnered 26 “Best Short Screenplay” awards. On the festival circuit, Breaking & Entering won over 35 “Best Short Film” and “Best Director” accolades (in addition to dozens more for actress Kiri Hartig and crew).

Despite consistent validation of his script and film quality evidenced by dozens of dust-gathering trophies, Michael remains unrepped; and his feature screenplays unproduced.
