Based on the memoirs of Vera Brittain, Testament of Youth is a searing story of love, war and remembrance. A powerful and passionate journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it’s a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times. With an all star cast, including Kit Harrington, Alicia Vikander, Hayley Atwell and Dominic West, the film follows young Oxford student Vera Brittain whose life is suddenly and irrevocably changed by the eruption of the First World War.
It was a beautiful film to work on, and Munky’s prime responsibility was making sure shots looked authentically dated, as well as ensuring the right tone for the movie. Nostalgia and romance were key, and our artists did some gorgeous work with sun flares, tidying up the English countryside, as well as beauty work.
