  • Last night at the Academy Awards, Mark Wahlberg was joined by his furry Ted co-star onstage

  • to present the awards for Sound Mixing and Editing.

  • Many people were left wondering how they pulled that off. The studio behind the special effect

  • has revealed just how it was done.

  • The segment was brought to life by Tippett Studio, Seth MacFarlane (the director of Ted

  • and host of the 85th Academy Awards ceremony), as well as the telecast's director Don Mischer

  • and his broadcast team. Here's what Tippett Studio had to say about the making of the

  • segment:

  • “A duplicate of the Academy Awards stage was constructed at CBS Studios, with lighting

  • and cameras situated to match the Dolby Theatre set up.

  • The feat involved planning exact camera positions so that the animation would integrate

  • seamlessly on Oscar Night with Wahlberg and the audience.

  • With five nominees in each category, Tippett artists created 10 different outcomes in just

  • a four-week production schedule. As the winners were unknown before the envelope was opened,

  • Mischer and his team sat at the ready to push the button for the correct winner during the

  • live broadcast.”

  • Although it's still a ways off, Ted 2 is in development. Unsurprisingly -- Ted is the

  • highest-grossing slacker/stoner movie of all time and the third highest-grossing film starring

  • a CGI character.
