“It was the first international InstaMeet I ever attended,” Razieff says.
Firman says Malaysia Instagrammer “Shafiq (@shafiqanaksaleh_) contacted us Indonesian Instagrammers who live in Malang and told us of their plan to visit Indonesia.”
Alongside friends Mories Adhtya (@moriesadhtya) and Rino Adlis (@rino_adlis), Firman then spread the word to their friends throughout Indonesia. “First I told my friends from Malang,” explains Mories, “then I called some Instagrammers from Jakarta, Bandung, Bali, Surabaya and Makassar.”
In the end, the group included Instagrammers from Malaysia, Malang and Surbaya, many of whom were meeting for the first time.
“This was a truly unforgettable experience,” says Firman. Beyond Instagram, “we shared and learned about one another’s culture, tourism, cuisine and more.”
Says Razieff, “Even though we’d never met in real life before, we all became close and still keep in touch.”
THE GET DOWN is most impressive for just HOW MUCH it is… like it was so expensive to produce (and it shows!) and it incorporates so many different tv styles (everything from the obvious hip-hop musical to genuine influences of soap operas and surrealism) and it features so many gorgeous looking sets + camera work + costumes + characters and the music is good and even though everything doesn’t fully jell with one another all the time, it added up to definitely the most interesting television experience of the year so far.
