Hello everyone! My name is Ziya Chirammal and I am a rising senior at Mission San Jose High School. I actually started filming at the beginning of my junior year in high school because of my English teacher. My English teacher loves photography and directing/producing short films. The film "Somebody's Watching You" was actually my final project for my English teacher's class. I remember how difficult it was for me and my groupmates to write the script for our creative film. We actually wrote our script at 3 am, with the help of 4 cups of coffee. We were hesitant about our skills in filming but with the help and support from each other, we were able to create something truly memorable.
