From Na’vi to Dothraki: How to Create a Language

I’ve mentioned before how much I love the Academy Originals YouTube series, courtesy of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are well over 100 videos that cover filmmaker and celebrity insights, as well as what I love most, brief glances into the various crafts that come together to make a movie. The series dives into the work of screenwriters, cinematographers, composers, makeup artists, and so many more. Perhaps my favorite is the one I truly knew nothing about until I saw the video. What the heck are conlangers? You hear their work whenever you watch movies like Avatar or The Lord of the Rings, or watch a show like Game of Thrones. Learn about this interesting craft in under seven minutes.
