    What I Did Why I Did It
    I found an online copy of the Grimm version of The Little Mermaid. Even though I much prefer the Disney version, and will probably pull more Disney details for my project, I thought it would be a good idea to include the original version of the story.
    Decided to use the Disney movie as my second source I think this is the most commonly recognized version of the story, so I contemplated not using it. I ended up deciding that because this is the version I loved as a child I wanted to use it, anyway. I also realized most of my visuals will probably come from this version.
    Made my final version the play. It took my a while to find the play online, but I thought it would offer a different viewpoint. I haven’t actually watched it yet so I don’t know how different it is from the movie, but it will be fun to find differences between the movie and play versions and decide which parts to use from each.
