For this mini project my squad and I created a podcast posing as a character from the book " A Diary of True Part Time Indian" a character named, Penelope Brooke Davis. Making the podcast from her perspective depend my understanding of the book by putting ourselves in her shoes. When analyzing the book we always had to ask ourselves "what would Penelope think" or "what would Penelope say" In our own way we had to further develop the character using hints from the books.
This is our Model Character Sheet where Trinity and I went through the book looking for chapters she was in and writing down quotes our character Penelope says, any clues to give us an idea of what more our character is like. The Blue text is the places I thought would be useful.

We made the recording based off our outline. It was a helpful way to stay organized with our scenes. Based on where the outline we made told us where for example her bedroom we reordered somewhere quite. We decided to cast Sydney as Penelope because she felt comfortable doing it and her voice matched the character. It was very difficult to cast people, especially because they had their own project to work on. It was difficult to find time for the other people used in the podcast. There were moments when Sydney would say lines in our script that was so funny because her voice fits well with the character in the book.
