Maintaining dynamism and energy throughout the ten minutes was vital to engage the audience, so Van den IJssel drew on a variety of styles and techniques. They ranged from a full CG rendered laboratory environment, to digital collage, cel animation and a 3D product tech section. A virtual host was then used to help the audience navigate through the world of Speedfulness. The host was first captured in live action and then created using match moving and 3D simulation.
