George Hull explains:

“I was contacted in 2011 by Neill & Co. to help design some large scale environments for the film. He said he spent a year concepting at Weta but there were still several big sets that were untouched.

I was about to start on the [Wachowskis’] film Jupiter Ascending but I had several weeks open — so I jumped at the opportunity to work with Neill again. I actually designed a massive robot factory for a Nike superbowl commercial for him years back.



So when it came to huge scale sets, I suppose that is why he turned to me. And even though Syd Mead designed the overall look of Elysium, there weren’t any images for the sub strata/ cavernous environments, robot factory, or the deportation bay. All were really cool sets descriptions that I was elated to chew on. The great artwork by Syd and the Weta crew was inspirational as well.”
