Proto Germanic video

Hi everyone,

I like working on weird and wonderful videos. I like to bring into the world things that have never been there before. So I decided that I would translate a trailer of a super hero movie into Proto Germanic. It took a while. Proto languages are reconstructions that were created by linguists and weren’t really designed to be used for conversation or media.

I have already translated the video into Proto Germanic. The next step is to get voices for each of the lines. The video we are going to be doing is the trailer for Avengers Infinity War. Most characters just have one line so it should be easy to put together.

The lines for the video are in Proto Germanic but as an audition I just want you to do Thanos’s original English lines. Once I have gone through all the submissions I will pick people to do the lines for the video. Thank you for helping out and good luck 🙂


In time, you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.
