Ruby Finds A Worry

Have you ever felt worried? You might feel stressed about a test, anxious about going to a new school or worried about speaking in front of an audience. But everyone feels worried sometimes, from your little sister to your grandpa, everyone get's worried about something.

After a particularly worrying year, Room 4 wanted to create a film festival movie to show you what to do when you are feeling anxious. We found the book Ruby Finds a Worry by Tom Percival and thought it was fantastic! We have used most of this story (although we changed a few parts) for our movie.

I n the story, we meet Ruby who is loving life. Then one day she finds a worry. In our movie we showed these worries as creatures, but they represent worried or anxious thoughts. Ruby's worry started off small, but it got bigger over time... Watch the film below to find out what Ruby did next!


We hope you enjoyed our movie and that you'll remember it the next time you feel worried. Remember to leave us a positive comment!

  11. Hey Room 4,

    I really liked ur movie. it was expressing a lot of feelings of not being lonely all the time. I think if more people had join the movie instead of just doing nothing in the background. Overall the movie turned out great.

  14. Hello Room 4, it's Nadia from your class. You all did a good job filming this even if you didn't have a big role like Ruby. Remember to talk about your worries or you will feel worse, there'll always be someone willing to listen to you. Worries aren't weird to have it's very normal to have so don't hide it inside. Anyways stay happy and safe!

  36. Hi Room 4!
    I loved your movie so much. The characters look very cute. I also liked how you made one of the students look like a kid. I loved every single bit. When you walked past they worried boy I actually thought it was a boy!Turns out that it was just Pisirina. Dang! that wig fooled me!

    Did you switch a boy with Pisirina because I still think that the original person siting on the chair was a boy? (Or it could've just been the wig)
    Great movie!
