This Production Plan will describe the different details needed to create a movie adaptation of the novel Love in the Time of Serial Killers by Alicia Thompson. This plan includes a summary of the plot and an analysis of mode and genre in this novel. Included also are photos and descriptions of the cast, filming locations, key scenes, and a list of songs for the soundtrack of my film, followed by a rationale for all of my choices. The goal of this plan is to create an overview of how to turn the novel into a successful film.

The project was created in response to an assignment prompt that asked students to analyze how adaptation affects the way stories are told in different genres. Students had to consider audience reception, the portrayal of heroism, how mode affects a story's point-of-view, and how elements like key scenes and a soundtrack contribute to the effectiveness of storytelling in a non-textual medium.
