And that's a wrap!

After nine months of planning and filming through long days and late nights, The Backyard Philly Project has officially wrapped production, and is moving on to post-production.

The storytellers of this project, our four teens, have given us so much insight and wisdom, as well as laughter and smiles. As you know, The Backyard Philly Project is partially made up of the moments filmed by these teens - moments in their daily life. We’re gathering everything these past nine months has produced and the end result will be something very special. We’ve learned so much from them, and we only hope they can teach you a few things too.

Now it’s time for the editing process, and planning how to bring this project to you. We still need your help and support to tell these stories in the best way possible. We hope you will consider buying a t-shirt designed by our Art Director, Lucas Clauser, or by making a donation to Ferasha Films on our website: We’ll be sure to let you know how you can help with the premiere event and further screenings of The Backyard Philly Project as we begin to plan its future. For now, we appreciate all of your support, and we especially thank our teens for sharing their time and their lives with us.

Thank you.
