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.
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.
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.
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.
