Ted VFX supe Blair Clark gave me shout-outs in these interviews about the process involved in crafting Seth's character:  Ted the Bear Facts  Ted in Post Magazine The Art of VFX

Back in October, we mocapped Seth during a live taping of the Jimmy Kimmel show. Tippett studios then worked on integrating Ted into the footage up until it aired (cut into the live show) to promote the home video release of Ted in December. It was a really fun shoot. Tippett studio rendered the shots on fields (60fps) to match the look of the live video.
