Butterflies in Formation (introduction to public speaking): wonderful 9-minute educational film



















This funky 1983 stop-motion clay-animated film by John Millstone shows “the nervous advantage”. Those butterflies in your tummy can change from just lying around to fluttering in formation.


Professor Harry Stumbel has a rough audience for his lecture on: “p-p-puppet speaking.” The students hold up signs like “Give it up!” and “Quit while you’re ahead” and someone off-screen also comments: “What a turkey!” Eventually though, his speech takes flight.
