Animated Teddy Bears Picnic
"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 Picnic
Here is a short teddy bear movie about a some teddy bears having a picnic, but disaster happens!
How The Little Bear Movie Was Made
Many years ago, my father had a 16mm cine camera, which he used for some family home movies.
It was his last reel of film to use, (4mins) and he had about 3 minutes left to record...
He thought it might be fun to make an animation with me about a teddy bear's picnic
For the actual animated teddy bear film recording, he set the camera on a tripod, and we moved the vast cast of a selection of my collection of teddy bears and other animals.
Each movement was recorded using a single frame of film, and the film wound on to the next one. Although, some of the sequences, like the flying bird, were done live - continuous filming.
My father did all the editing at home, once the film was developed. Actual cutting and pasting of the celluloid film!!
Years later, he had all our home movies transferred to VHS video tape, so they were easier to watch.
Recently, I transferred those tapes to DVDs! .... From there I could reformat the teddy bear animation film files on my PC and finally upload to youtube!
