A TV producer is looking for a conlanger to support our writer in creating lines of dialogue for fantasy characters including fairies and other mystical characters in a fantasy adventure TV series set in Medieval Britain (up to around 1100AD).
While we are not looking to construct a whole language, as in ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Lord of the Rings’, we are looking to add to the culture and texture of the world by having a dedicated set of rules / words / differences in the way that these non-humans communicate. We would ideally be looking for someone based in the UK, who has some familiarity with or understanding of Medieval British languages and/or folklore so that the dialogue created fits with our time period.
You will be working together with our writer to help create specific lines of dialogue within the existing scripts.
Closed due to application period passed
We would expect work to start in September, to support the pre-production process. Deadlines will be established once the scale of the work has been assessed between you and the producer.
The scale of work needed will be discussed between the successful applicant and the producer. Payment details will be confirmed during this discussion, but we are willing to start at £300 for all work up to and including the lines of dialogue for the first episode. Compensation for further work will be negotiated. All work created will be exclusively owned by the producer upon receipt of payment. br>
Besides compensation, the conlanger will be credited for their work.
Please email Zack Fox at – “at” – “dot” – to express your interest in the project. Please include qualifications and samples of previous work.
