Just Say It! Exploring the Fear of Public SpeakingStreaming Video - 2009
The average person, it's said, feels more anxiety about talking in front of a group than about dying. So what drives some people to get up and give speeches? How do they overcome their fear? This program follows a young filmmaker named Luke King as he confronts the fight-or-flight aspect of public speaking and tries to determine solutions for it. Meeting with participants in a prestigious youth speech competition, King learns about each speaker's preparation process-emotional, physical, and academic-and records their presentations. He also interviews a wide range of experts in motivational speaking, politics, and the performing arts, leading to historical, linguistic, and media-related insights.
