French Dubbing Narrator 
ZDLTK152011316769X
French Dubbing for The NARRATOR

Though not visible, is a critical character.
His relationship to Nate is both educator and comedic
tormentor, as he instructs Nate on the best way to sales
success. The Narrator's voice should be commanding and
refined, making his sarcastic asides that much more
unexpected.

A video will be provided for reference and timing.

TITLE CARD: Closed-ended Questions Vs. Open-ended Questions


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Posez les bonnes questions est primordial dans une relation client/vendeur. Grâce à une écoute attentive, le bon vendeur doit être capable d’identifier les motivations de son client et de répondre à ses besoins.



INT. BELL CANADA STORE - DAY


Salesperson NATE stands behind the counter.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Voici Nate. Nate est naturellement doué quand il s’agit de poser les bonnes questions. Mais ça, Nate ne le sait pas encore.


Nate looks at the camera.


NATE
J’ai une question...



NARRATOR (O.S.)
Garde là pour tes clients, Nate. En voilà justement un qui arrive.


A casually-dressed REGULAR GUY, 30, wearing earphones and
carrying a digital camera, walks up to Nate's counter. He
bops to barely-heard music as he takes out a folded up scrap
of paper and starts looking at the Bell Canada merchandise.


REGULAR GUY
Est-ce que j’peux vous emprunter votre stylo ?

REGULAR GUY
(loudly)
Mind if I borrow your pen?


Yoink. Regular Guy helps himself to the pen in Nate's shirt pocket and starts taking down notes.


Nate starts to speak up but panics, looking at the camera.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Vas-y, Nate, lance-toi. Et rappelle-toi, il n’y a pas de mauvaises questions.



Nate looks at Regular Guy.

NATE
Est-ce que je peux vous aider ?


No answer, so Nate raises his voice.



NATE (CONT’D)
Est-ce que je peux vous aider ?


REGULAR GUY
Non, non, ça va

REGULAR GUY
(loudly)
No.


Nate looks perplexed at Regular Guy, who continues to jot
down notes. The silence is deadening. Nate looks surprised
at the camera.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
OK. Alors là c’était une mauvaise question, vraiment nulle.


NATE
Mais...


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Pas de mais qui tienne, Nate. C’était pitoyable. J’en regrette presque d’avoir vanté tes mérites en introduction. Tu dois te servir de ce que tu as appris. Une question fermée termine la conversation. Une question ouverte au contraire invite à la conversation. Essaie une question ouverte.


Nate turns back to Regular Guy and thinks long and hard.

NATE
En quoi puis-je vous être utile ?



NARRATOR (O.S.)
Hum ... je ne suis pas sûr que j’aurais demandé ça en premier...



But Nate looks at the camera knowingly, then confidently
back to Regular Guy.


Regular Guy removes his earphones, looks like he's about to
give a suitable answer, tapping the counter.


REGULAR GUY
Rien


Nate looks sadly at the camera, as Regular Guy replaces the
earphones.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
OK. C’est pas de chance, Nate. Mais ta question n’est pas vraiment idéale pour déclencher une conversation. Tu dois te rappeler: différents clients égalent différents besoins. Observe attentivement ce client.

(MORE)

NARRATOR (O.S.) (CONT’D)
Est-ce que tu remarques quelque chose qui pourrait t’aider à satisfaire son besoin ? Essaie de comprendre ce qu’il aime, et tu pourras peut-être découvrir ce qui est important pour lui. Vas-y. Essaie encore.


Nate looks at Regular Guy, analyzes what he is looking at
and assesses the situation. Nate looks at Regular Guy's casual
almost grubby clothes, then he notices the camera, the
notepaper and, specifically, the mp3 player.


NATE
Qu’est-ce que vous écoutez là ?


This question captures Regular Guy's attention. He holds up
his earphones to Nate so that he (and we) can hear the
CHEESIEST LOVE BALLAD EVER RECORDED.


NATE (CONT’D)
Sympa. Vous savez que grâce au service de téléchargement de musique illimité, ce modèle vous permet de télécharger tous les tubes les plus récents. Vous pouvez choisir les chansons que vous voulez écouter à partir d’un énorme catalogue incluant tous les grands classiques. Y a aussi un appareil photo intégré, pour ne plus avoir à trimballer votre appareil photo avec vous, et même une fonction prise de note pour se débarrasser du stylo et du papier.



REGULAR GUY
Wow, that sound like just what I
need.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Excellent travail, Nate


Nate bursts with confidence.


NATE
Parfait. Combien vous en voulez ?


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Oh là, pas si vite gamin. Ne t’emballe pas.


REGULAR GUY
J’en veux douze. Un pour chacune de mes sœurs.


Nate gives a little victory jig.


NARRATOR (O.S.)
Ok. Tu as peut-être trouvé son point faible quand même. C’est du bon boulot, Nate.


Regular Guy joins Nate in dancing the jig.
