2. Stock Narratives/Themes…
o In ‘Log Book’ we have used murder and a
slight secret agent twist to it. Marriage isn’t
always used in a thriller/romantic genre like
ours so we have adapted it a little bit. Like
‘Mr & Mrs Smith’, we have used a sense of
assassin type element to our film as we felt
it fit right at the time.
3. Stock Setting…
o For the office scene, we have used a study
which was tight fitting and perfect for the
basic appearance of an office.
o The honeymoon scene was shot in a five
star luxury hotel which represents the
romantic element to this two minute
opening of the film.
4. Stock Characters…
o In this element, we have included a villain
and also a victim. The villain, Simon, who is
played by Jack Cavanagh, who is a
romantic husband with dark secrets which
are yet to be revealed to his wife.
5. CESM and Iconography…
o As a group, we decided that it was best if
Simon didn’t use any weapons to kill his
victims as that could give his secret identity
away if they ever got found.
o We used props such as wedding rings to
show that Simon and Lisa are a married
couple and in a long term relationship.
