On the cracked driveway of 8100 was
where it all started…

where thousands of hours were spent falling in love with the game of basketball, and without knowing it, the seed of a creative dream.

Fast forward to June 2020, and from the basement of 8100, that seed
blossomed into a hoops-inspired script!

The OG 8100 — Salt Lake City, UT

And there was only one place to film it…
Enter — Spokane, WA.

Oct. 2020 — car and script were packed, and the biggest hoops haven on
the planet, aka @hooptownusa, became home.


Jan. 2022 — a year and a half of work on the script, recruiting,
casting, planning, prepping, and finally…

The formation of 81hundred LLC.

April 2022 - Principal photography wraps on the Real Rat - Pilot!

A labor of love turned into a passion for storytelling, and our journey
is just getting started. Perhaps yours is too?

Stay in the loop (*below), as the journey continues!
