See Seth MacFarlane Perform TED Via Motion Capture

Never it let it be said that Ted MacFarlane doesn’t put himself into his work. In the case of the Family Guy creator’s first live-action feature length film Ted, this entailed him crawling into a motion capture suit to play the foul-mouthed teddy bear that Mark Wahlberg’s character wished to life when he was a child.

The process is shown in the video below from Funny Or Die, which illustrates how MacFarlane and the rest of the cast were able to improv on the set during filming even though his character wasn’t technically “there.” As for the results, well, I saw Ted last night and will have a review coming on Friday when the film opens in theaters.
