Hello, Reddit! This is David (/u/dedalvs) typing, and I'm here with Marc (/u/okrandm), Paul (/u/KaryuPawl), and Christine (/u/linganthprof) who are executive producers of the forthcoming documentary Conlanging: The Art of Crafting Tongues by Britton Watkins (/u/salondebu) and Josh Feldman (/u/sennition). Conlanging is set to be the first feature length documentary on language creation and language creators, whether they do it for big budget films, or for the sheer joy of it. We've got a crowd funding project running on Indiegogo, and it ends tomorrow! In the meantime, we're here to answer any questions you have about language creation, our documentary, or any of the projects we've worked on (various iterations of Star Trek, Avatar, Man of Steel, Game of Thrones, Defiance, The 100, Dominion, Penny Dreadful, Star-Crossed, Thor: The Dark World, Warcraft, The Shannara Chronicles, Emerald City, and Senn). We'll be back at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT to answer questions. Fire away!
Proof: Here's some proof from earlier in the week:

UPDATE 1:00 p.m. PDT: I've (i.e. /u/dedalvs) unexpectedly found myself having to babysit, so I'm going to jump off for a few hours. Unfortunately, as I was the one who submitted the post, I won't be able to update when others leave. I'll at least update when I come back, though! Should be an hour or so.
UPDATE 1:33 p.m. PDT: Paul (/u/KaryuPawl) has to get going but thanks everyone for the questions!
UPDATE 2:08 p.m. PDT: Britton (/u/salondebu) has left, but I'm back to answer questions!
UPDATE 2:55 p.m. PDT: WE ARE FULLY FUNDED! ~:D THANK YOU REDDIT!!! https://twitter.com/Dedalvs/status/764218559593521152
LAST UPDATE 3:18 p.m. PDT: Okay, that's a wrap! Thank you so much for all the questions from all of us, and a big thank you for the boost that pushed us past our funding goal! Hajas!
