Entertainment Weekly talked with Wes Ball for the article as well. Here are the highlights:
Wes Ball on the concept art:
It was for me, really. I like writing images. I started daydreaming about what it’s like to be at those doors and looking up at those walls.
On the film's opening:
The story begins with the lead character, Thomas, awakening inside a rusting, rumbling industrial elevator, which ascends from some unfathomable depth — into a peaceful meadow. He has no idea who he is or where he comes from. “The doors open and deposit him in this rustic, idyllic place surrounded by walls on all sides,” says Ball.
