About

Garden of Tomorrow Productions is wholesome, appropriate, responsible children’s programming for kids three to seven years of age and children with special needs. With your support we can make the difference. Help us produce our first full episode, and launch the Garden of Tomorrow web series. Any pledges received above and beyond our goal will further our production capabilities and enable us to produce more episodes.

Dancing with Tommy Tomato. All our children's episodes will be shown in storybook-like settings. There will be no advertising in the children's sections.

Who We Are.
We are a collection of ordinary people, of various ages, backgrounds and skills but we are definitely technically and artistically savvy! We know how to write scripts, craft great songs, shoot films, work with children, edit professionally and build a website... and we all share one common goal: We want what’s best for our kids.

What Has Happened to Wholesome?
If you are a parent, grandparent or teacher of preschool age children then, like us, you must be concerned with the direction a number of today’s TV children’s shows have taken.

Well… Together We Can do Something About It.
Thanks to the Internet, we are not ruled by corporate media bosses. We can develop our own content, in our own style, in our own time frame. And thanks again to the Internet we will be very, very interactive, so that YOU - our supporters - can become hands-on participants in future productions. Together we can bring back "responsible children's programming".

Listen to one of Lady Arlene's songs.
We have over thirty professionally recorded children's songs ready for future episodes and literally dozens in the works. Arlene Yates is a prolific writer and performer of quality children's material and our goal here is to share this with the world. Be part of helping us launch Garden of Tomorrow so we can get her music and videos out there for children all over to watch and enjoy. You can play one of her many compositions "Over The Rainbow" below.

Ok folks, grab your chaps and lasso and join Lady Arlene and the kids at Rawhide Ranch, an amazing filming location and western camp for young people in Bonsall, California.

How the Web Series will be Structured.
Our series will primarily consist of new episodes which at some point downstream could occur weekly once we are in full production. Episodes themselves will be one-half hour or more in length but will consist of a number of shorter segments, typically, from one to five minutes each. This will keep our show moving at a good pace and be more interesting. Additionally, because we are Internet-based, parents don’t have to concern themselves with school, nap time or other conflicts. Garden of Tomorrow will be available to watch any time of the day on any Internet-enabled devise. In addition, all episodes will be archived... so a child or parent can easily return to a favorite.

A Website in Two Parts.
Our website, www.GardenOfTomorrowProductions.com , (which is still very much in development), consists of two parts: The children's section features a SHOW TIME page where all episodes are played in a storybook-like setting, but we will also have a GAMES page which will feature interactive puzzles, and MY SONGS which is a very special place where Lady Arlene will present one of her many songs then challenge the kids to draw their best interpretation of it, such as her song "My Dog Shadow". We will then select the winning art which will subsequently be printed as part of the album art when it is released (with credits to the child artist of course). It is also important to note that there will be absolutely no advertising in the children’s web sections.

The Parent’s Page.
This section will have the ‘How To’ instructions for submitting material for our many other challenges, some of which may include video segments produced by parents, schools or kids for our staff's consideration. There will also be a handy guide set aside for local merchants to list their services such as summer camps, preschools, tutors, music teachers, acting classes, dance schools, and discounts for local events - stuff parents may be interested in - but none of this is presented to the kids!

We will also include links associated with the current episode playing in the child's SHOW TIME page. These links may be of interest to the parent such as where to get more information on a particular musical instrument featured or a ventriloquist's act, a tea set shown, or a book that was read.

Shooting green-screen allows our Garden of Tomorrow Pen Pals to visit interesting cultures around the world.

Segments will be Fun and Educational.
Music videos with Lady Arlene and her puppets, building challenging structures with snap-together toys, dance classes, learning how to ride a bike, a visit to the dentist, making a pot-n-pan band, comedy skits, cooking with Lady Arlene, fun with ceramics, learning about exotic animals, field trips, building sand castles, storybook reads and hanging out with the Wishing Well Club Kids. The list goes on and on.

Our Rewards.
A number of our Rewards are similar to what you might expect but our very special OPPORTUNITY rewards are truly unique to Garden of Tomorrow. We said that you - our supporters - would have a chance to be part of our show and we mean it. Check out our On-Set Opportunities below.

On-Set Opportunities: Your Child (or you) on Our Show!!
We have several on-screen, crew and acting opportunities for your child (or even yourself) to participate in for one or more of our upcoming episodes. Check out our 'Reward' OPPORTUNITIES #1 through #6 for specifics and be sure to read our general Rules and Understandings as seen on our website.

And as we stated in the beginning, any and all funds received above and beyond our goal will go to furthering our production capabilities and producing more episodes. We are ordinary people determined to do something positive about children's programming and together with your active support and participation WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE !!

Join our Advisory Board made up of Parents and Teachers.
See our Advisory Board Reward. Name yourself to this important 15-person, hands-on panel for one full year. All we ask is that you be a parent of a preschooler or a teacher of preschool thru 6th grade and share our philosophy of returning to responsible programming. Advisory members will be key to quality control, be provided with special Internet access to behind-the-scenes production, including sneak-peek previews, make show suggestions directly to the creative staff and visit our sets anytime with prior notice. Advisory members will have their names listed as such for one year on our About Us page.

If you think Garden of Tomorrow is a good idea whose time has come and want to be part of making it happen, then select a pledge or just make a straight donation and help us launch our website with our first episode.

We want to thank everybody on our team who has volunteered their time and energy to help bring this project to this point. THANK YOU !!

Arlene Yates is an accomplished and prolific writer and performer of children’s songs targeting three to eight year olds. Most of her songs have been professionally recorded and mastered by Bob Summers, whom she’s worked with for twenty-three years. Arlene's career began in the late 1960s with an all-girl band called the Jaggz where they played for high school dances and the USOs in Southern California. They soon became a hit and were selected to open up the show for Ike and Tina Turner with guest performer Donavan on a KTTV production called "9th Street West", hosted by Sam Riddle. They won the battle of the bands on the show that day. Arlene's current treasure trove of children's material has yet to be commercially released, which is where the idea behind Garden of Tomorrow began.

Bob Summers, the brother of Mary Ford of the legendary Les Paul  & Mary Ford began his performing and recording career while still in his teens. Following the separation of Mary and Les Paul, Bob took over as the guitarist for his sister as she continued her career. By the early 60's, he had become increasingly involved in record production. Bob arranged, engineered, played all the instruments and sang background vocals on Terry Stafford's hit single "SUSPICION". By the late 60's, Bob and business partner Mike Curb were producing soundtracks for American International Pictures and even had his own top 40 record in 1971. He continued his partnership with Mike, becoming the musical director for the "Mike Curb Congregation". He later opened his own studio as an independent producer operating as "Bob Summers Music". Bob has composed the music for countless TV and movies, such as the “GRISSLY ADAMS” TV Series, and Movie Of The Week Specials on NBC. He continues to produce and record a variety of music today.

Bryan Caron is a prolific writer, director, editor and graphic designer with several completed projects in different mediums, from feature films to novels, commercials and blogs under both his Divine Trinity Films banner and as a freelancer for other companies. He has been a part of the Fallbrook Film Factory since 2006, where he has written, directed and helped in any way possible on several different projects, including the short film My Necklace, Myself (for which he won a Best Screenplay award and was runnner-up for Best Short Film at two separate festivals) and, of course Garden of Tomorrow, where he hopes to bring his skills to help the production of this fun, wholesome series grow and flourish.

Robert Alvarez and his sons, Tyler and Joseph have worked as cameramen with me for over three years. In fact the whole Alvarez family has been heavily involved in both the Fallbrook Film Factory, the International Film Festival and since its inception, the Garden of Tomorrow. Robert is very active in day-to-day planning and his persistence and work ethic are an integral part of this presentation. Robert's wife Carla is a former preschool teacher who is now teaching 4th and 5th grades.

Teri Niebell web design and development. Teri has been designing and developing websites for over 15 years. She has launched major sites for a number of commercial companies, large and small, with an emphasis on clean and current design along with seamless functionality on both the front and back ends. Her technical expertise in web programming and database development, along with her extensive background in music and the arts make her an excellent team member for Garden of Tomorrow. She is in fact an accomplished pianist, composer and arranger and is classically trained with over 30 years of professional experience. Along with her website development role, Teri is currently the pianist and music historian for the Fallbrook Chamber Orchestra.

Other persons not shown here but who are very key to our team are: Gigi Bjork, puppets, set, costumes, makeup and all around creative arty stuff; Shirley Duke, who will continue in her familiar Film Festival role as our customer and submissions coordinator, interfacing with viewers, publishers, authors, local services, marketing personal, PR and the press, and most important, in the near term: "Reward Fulfillment". We also currently have two interns: Marissa Sagey and Wes Hovatter.

Risks and challenges

Arlene Yates has over 30 studio mastered copyrighted songs finished and almost 60 pending, so we have years of new song material for the show. I have a decade of experience directing, filming and editing community-based projects and three decades before that as both a designer and creative director for high-tech digital systems. We have a good crew, many I have worked with for a long time. We have teacher and community support. We have temporary studio space which will become permanent at some point and we have great weather and outstanding filming locations. And, most importantly, we have allowed sufficient time to produce our first episode PLUS meet our reward fulfillment obligations.

    EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: Garden of Tomorrow episodes are similar to TV productions except that they are entirely web-based. As in a TV series, our shows will end with a quick scrolling of production credits, i. e. writers, directors, editors, etc. but conclude with a freeze frame of the Executive Producers and our copyright. Name yourself to a Executive Producers position for the first full year of GOT productions. Remember, all our episodes are easily archived so you will be known as an Executive Producer on a given episode permanently!
