JERRY LEE BRICE
From Hollywood to Bollywood, Jerry Brice’s distinguished industry career makes him a favorite mentor for many animation students at The Art Institute of California—San Diego. In addition to his assistance in developing the animation style for Fox Television’s prime time series “King of the Hill” and serving as timer and character layout artist on the series, his work can be found in several feature films, including Walt Disney’s “Oliver & Company” and “The Little Mermaid,” and Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World.” Jerry’s animations have also sparked life into music videos such as Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” and Eminem’s “Role Model.” He has also left his pen mark on the television series “The Simpsons,” “He-Man,” “She-Ra” and “Brave Starr.” Before joining The Art Institutes, Jerry served as overseas director and studio instructor for Net Guru, an animation company in Calcutta, India. Brice knows the power of mentoring with an industry authority—he studied under the “guru of all screen writers,” Syd Field, while earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Film Graphics and Animation at the California Institute of the Arts. He strives to incorporate the benefits of the mentorship philosophy into his everyday classroom activities. Most recently, Brice teamed up with some of his students to develop and illustrate the animation sequences for the ABC primetime television special, “The Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey Variety Hour,” for revered Los Angeles studio 23DFilms
