Animation on this film takes a reverse from the traditional technology through which artistic control took over control of how the films looked like. This film theme on technology is wholeheartedly pessimistic, portraying the adverse effects of modern technology in the future, where young people have enslaved themselves to computer games.

In reference to the four points stylistic, there are four varying styles in this film, depicting various aspects of this film. One of the levels depicted is the “real world”. Here, Avalon’s first shots are showcased by the use of unsteady camera movements. This reminds the users of war zones reports. This paper understands this to mean the constant war that the different classes of Avalon is under, as implied by immediacy to the scenes. Close-ups and medium-shots leave the audience desiring to see more and the sounds bring to the closure of episodes, and the cinematography is at their best (Ruh 218). In the real world, this film draws attention to the main character by transmitting static shots, depicting the uneventful lives in this world. This uneventful is viewed in Ash life, lives alone, with no contact with other people. Her life activities are cooking meals and playing with her dog.
