Post by: ingsve on March 17, 2011, 11:17:10 am
Comcast has announced a new partnership with HBO where they are releasing lots of previews and interviews ahead of the Game of Thrones premiere. In their announcement they also mention that there will be a video about the creation of the Dothraki language. http://blog.comcast.com/2011/03/get-ready-for-game-of-thrones.html (http://blog.comcast.com/2011/03/get-ready-for-game-of-thrones.html)

We'll keep you posted about when this video will show up.

I asked David on twitter if he was interviewed for the making of dothraki video and he confirmed that he was.

The 6 minute dothraki language video will be released on HBO Demand and probably on fancast.com on April 4th.

The making Game of Thrones video has not been released. It can be seen on comcast/xfinity by viewers in the US (perhaps you need a subscription) but us mere mortals have to make due with a version on youtube that is filmed with camstudio so the quality is very poor. The sound is ok though.

If anyone can see the actual video on xfinity could you try to make a screenshot of Davids list of words that he shows the camera?

Hopefully HBO will release a HD version of the video sooner or later once the xfinity exclusivity has passed.

Oh awesome! And now we know what he says, in English at least "..and men will tremble when they see it."
I will be keeping my eyes open for a version with better quality  :)

That's awesome. Are those two last screengrabs from the same video as the three before?

Yes, they are.

On that same note you deserve a smite for being so darn busy.

Good one, Jenny!

Hey, Lajaki, do you need help editing the dictionary?

One thing is certainly clear. It's going to be very difficult to get the correct words out of just listening to the dialogue.

I wish I could like that post.

Indeed, brotha. I was trying to listen and put the pieces together... my girlfriend was asking "what did they say?", but I went "well, I'm actually reading the subtitles just like you do"
