“Interview with Ramin Niami
“Where did this story come from?
Ramin: I never know. It’s really funny because when I’m writing something, I’m not trying to force it. Originally, I heard a story about a hacker and it really was disturbing that somebody in college was hacking all the girls’ computers. I have two daughters, one of them is the cinematographer (for this film), so that was quite disturbing. I’m also a big fan of classics. Rear Window is one of my favorite movies. So, I thought what if I make a kind of modern Rear Window, in a way, about a hacker who’s watching apartments, and then he thinks there’s crime or there was a murder or something strange is going on in one of the apartments?”
