Really, “close” the sale? Eh, no Sparky. It’s “earn” the sale. | Tolkien | Scoop.it
It never ceases to amaze me how many people still ask me, “What's the best way to close a sale?” Other than cold calling and finding the pain, this is one of the biggest misconceptions in sales.

Listen and quake: The voice of Smaug

Listen and quake: The voice of Smaug | Tolkien | Scoop.it

One of the single most anticipated characters or creatures in 2013 cinema, (honestly it is difficult to think of anything close) is the marriage of the voice and performance of Benedict Cumberbatch and the digital artistry of Weta Digital together in Tolkien’s dragon Smaug the Magnificent.

 

We all saw the creature’s head move in the latest “Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” trailer, but it is still a good bit removed from the total performance. But for now, you can listen to the voice, or at least the voice originating from the same human, doing a reading of “Ode To A Nightingale.”

 

Nobody (outside of the team making the movie) knows how his performance will change as a dragon, nor how the sound team will change or enhance or filter the original performance. But this is a great chance to hear the raw voice in a short, satisfying reading. Thanks to staffer Justin for the find. Enjoy.

 

The sound clip can be found after the jump or here: http://inkandoldpaper.tumblr.com/post/54243616064/benedict-cumberbatch-voice-omg
