See How Seth MacFarlane Played a Teddy Bear Using Motion-Capture in New TED Featurette

     June 26, 2012


Last week, a really funny red-band featurette for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature directorial debut Ted was released.  Now a new featurette has gone online, giving us a look at how MacFarlane played the titular teddy bear using motion-capture technology.  It’s a pretty interesting clip that shows MacFarlane pulling double duty on set, sitting behind the monitors and directing while also wearing a motion-capture suit so he can play opposite the human actors at the same time.

Hit the jump to watch the featurette.  If you missed our interview with MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis in which they talk offensive humor, creepy CGI and more, click here.  The film also stars Joel McHalePatrick Warburton, and Giovanni Ribisi.  Ted opens on June 29th.

Here’s the synopsis for Ted:

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the liveaction/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.
