We are very excited to be working on a new project with local director Marc Mulholland (Scram.tv) and legendary NBA shooting coach Dave Hopla. – “House of Hopla”…a story of Basketball, brotherhood and self belief…

In the early 1980’s West Belfast was the epic centre for Northern Irelands conflict and home of Andersonstown legendary Saint Gall’s Basketball team. This is a story about a team that would shape the lives of a community for years to come and be the foundation to a legacy carried by one man in developing the shots of the best basketball players in the NBA. Dave Hopla’s journey to Belfast in 1981 would see West Belfast become his home for the next 3 years giving birth to a life long love for his brothers on the basketball court and the beginning of a journey that would shape the world of basketball as we know it today.
