First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit the Team Hogan website & blog page.
I would like to extend a big thank you to my brother, Shane Hogan. Without him, “Team Hogan” would not exist in cyberspace (except for the Mass. based telecomm company & the Racing Team).
Not only does he posses the skills to get this job done, he took time (valuable and usually costly time) to listen to what I wanted (in very vague terms) and then functioned not only as the “IT” guy and web-page provider, but went above and beyond in becoming a graphic designer and giving me not only the website I wanted but the look I want it to have.
All I can say is thank you.
When we came up with the idea of a blog, I knew it could be a very powerful tool. Team Hogan has tons of protocols that we have to teach quickly to members and non-members alike. What better way to disseminate this information than a blog? At very least it could begin a ramp up to speed on basic to intermediate skills and serve as a way for fellow Assistant Directors and set PA’s to exchange ideas and information in a fast, precise way.
I will sort this blog into two parts. The “Protocols” and the “Anecdotes”.
The protocols will be an opportunity for Team Leaders to offer their subordinates a chance to familiarize themselves with our ways of doing things. Protocols rarely change from job to job. Protocols can cover anything from Crew safety, as in EAP’s (Emergency Action Protocols) to Walkie-Etiquette Protocols.
The anecdotes will be diatribes, ramblings of a mad-man if you will. Postings of stories that illustrate the differences between a reality Assistant-Director and a film Assistant-Director. Musings, thoughts etc. etc.
Thank you all for your time and consideration.
See you out in the field.
