Miyazaki's previous films had all been completely hand-crafted - with each cel used in the film drawn and painted by hand by the studio's artists. But this time Miyazaki also chose to take advantage of the very latest in computer technology. The result is movement with far more fluidity and realism than that of the typical anime film. The camerawork for the thrilling leaps, slashing sword fights and thundering gallops is dynamic in a way that only hand-drawn animation can achieve, while the computer-generated imagery conveys an immediacy and presence usually experienced in live-action film.
