Even Better Behind the Scenes Featurette for Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted'
Last week we got a hilarious look behind the scenes of Ted, the first film from "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane in the form of a red band featurette. But now, an even better look behind the camera of the new comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as a teddy bear brought to life by a childhood wish, we get to see how Ted was created through motion capture and animation. MacFarlane was on set for all of Ted's movements and lines to allow for easy improvisation, but never actually in the shots while filming. As MacFarlane points out, no one has used this kind of technology for a film like this. Watch!
Here's the latest behind-the-scenes featurette for Seth MacFarlane's Ted, from Funny or Die:
A story centered on John (Wahlberg) and his teddy bear, who comes to life as a result of a childhood wish.
"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 this original new comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett, a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear (created with computer animation) who came to life as the result of a wish and has refused to leave his side. Patrick Warburton, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel McHale, Laura Vandervoort and more also star in this. Ted hits theaters everywhere on June 29th.
