"Animated Teddy Bear films for you to enjoy"
What better way to show our excitement and love of our cuddly teddy bear friends than to see them come to life in a teddy bear film?
There are many ways in which a teddy bear can come to life, most of the time there is a "human friend" making them move and talk, and we tend not to notice the human after a while :-) ... But how much better is it if they come to life all by themselves!!
Teddy Bear Movies
One of the most popular methods of animating teddy bears is a technique known as "stop motion animation" which has been used ever since the early days of film. This works particularly well for "real" objects, where a picture is taken of the teddy bear, then the bear is moved a small amount, and another picture taken. The pictures are then shown in sequence, giving the impression of motion.
Another method of animation is using entirely computer generated images, as used in the most recent Disney films.

Animated Teddy Bears - Christmas Bear
Here is a short teddy bear film about a bear choosing a Christmas Bear Costume.
How The Little Bear Movie Was Made
First of all, the teddy bear charcters and props were all made out of modelling clay.
The two teddy bears were strengthend with coctail sticks inside, so they were less likely to break during filming... :-)
The sticks holding the heads were useful, so that the bear's heads could be turned too.
An iPhone was used to take the pictures, using a Stop Motion app.
The iPhone can be held in place with blu-tac if it is on its side, or it fits neatly in a loo roll, if upright... However, the result is a "portrait" image.
Post proccessing (editing) was done on the iPhone too with another app, which added a sound track, a still image and a title.
This app also uploaded the animated teddy bear film straight to youtube :-) ...
All done on the iPhone!
Our Teddy Bears love Apple!
