The Wonderful World Of Politics Presents-‘W’ (Animated Video)
In 2007, during the final days of the administration of former President Bush,my company, Brice Productions was commissioned to produce and animate a satirical look back at the reign of the former president, lovingly nicknamed by all,”W”.
Animator Jerry Brice served as the producer/director, as well as the main art director and animation director.Jerry Brice did several of the main backgrounds,and supervised the two other background artist that worked on the project.
Julian Chaney did the storyboards for most of the film,the opening sequence was storyboarded by my student Kalum Truett,and illustrator Aaron White served as the character designer.
The majority of the animators,except for one, were all trained by Jerry Brice, or studied under him in the finer points of animation.(Source)
The entire production was done in Adobe Flash, and I chose a hand drawn traditional animation approach, coupled with flash cut-out symbol animation, and a healthy dose of digital manipulation.
James Adomian went on to perform President Bush in the 2008 live action feature film smash hit “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”.He was also a top-ten finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in the summer of 2010…I am very proud of him!!!

It should be noted that at the time this was written, most people had predicted that Hillary Clinton was going to be the Democratic parties candidate to run for the presidency,before Barack Obama rose to prominence…
