“This opportunity that YES FOUNDATION has given to the youth has definitely created ripples of social change across India, empowering even those who did not possess the skills to Make a Social Film and Create a National Difference.”

Writer, creative director turned freelance producer, Ravi Iyer signed up for YES! i am the CHANGE – 101 Hour Filmmaking Challenge and early morning received a topic ‘Animal Care’.

Having a dilemma what to shoot, Ravi’s friend’s recommendation was a starting point of a long lasting connection with this avid animal lover - Roxanne Davur. Ravi, along with his team, contacted Roxanne Davur, Founder of Probably Paradise, and a shelter for terminally ill animals in Karjat. Ravi shot Roxanne’s tireless efforts in the recuperation of over 135 animals under one roof and put them in a 3-minute social film for the world to see. Roxanne and her work was inspiring beyond belief.  He felt sad and dejected because he could possibly cover only one such cause through this challenge. Ravi and his team were so moved while filming, that they held a fundraising dinner inviting their acquaintances’ to contribute towards this little ‘Probably Paradise’.
