About

The Mr. Mac's Greenhouse Project will comprise of six eleven minute episodes of a children's cartoon that will feature Mr. Mac, and his rainbow greenhouse featuring a menagerie of animals which will help children through teaching and music to embrace the differences in each other, from people with disabilities, to children with single parents, and with those with parents of the same gender.

It will also produce a family friendly adventure game that can be enjoyed by everyone, with puzzles with selectable difficulty levels that range from puzzles that will give a gentle guiding hand to the youngest players, a selectable level of hints to older players, or no hints at all to those who are comfortable with adventure games.  The adventure game will be set in the universe of the show, and will have the ability to interact with many background objects, in the vein of the Humoungous Junior Adventure games, but will be presented in a way that enjoyable for everyone, regardless of age.  There will be moments of the game which teach children about certain things, as in the show, but there will be an option to not play these scenes, so older gamers will be able to enjoy the adventure as well.

BACKGROUND

My dad, Bill McMurray, affectionately known as Mr. Mac, passed away in March 2000.  He was a special education teacher and substitute principal who made a point to teach his students (and my sister and I) that differences should be embraced, and this project is being made to continue his teaching.

My dad left his greenhouse to his school and his students picked the name and dedicated it "Mr. Mac's Rainbow Greenhouse". This name is going to live on in a project to honor his legacy.

My sister and I worked for my father's school district as teacher's aides, and although neither of us continued on that path after my father's passing, this project will be my means to continue teaching through the path that I have chosen: writing, animation, music, and game design.

My dad also had a love of music and of animals, so the Mr. Mac's Rainbow Greenhouse project will combine everything he loved together. It will spread Mr. Mac's message of embracing differences through teaching and music.

Risks and challenges

There are many aspects of this project, so it could be easy for it to grow out of proportion. The time table has been set to give it enough time to produce everything, and the basic design of each piece has already been outlined so that it will be able to be produced within that timeframe and within the budget of the project.
