Landscapes, people, attractions, festivals. Geoffrey Gaspard and thirty of his “friends” users took platform by storm “Instagram” sharing snapshots, so that nothing escapes them!
Geoffrey Gaspard has noted recently: one of his photos, which shows the “shock” in the air between two Capoera dancers, was selected from among thousands of other photographs by the jury of the competition launched by the global network of French Alliances. Wednesday, June 1, he also presented his latest filmmaking: a small 6-minute film made in partnership with the DIANA region and the Regional Directorate for Youth and Sports. In this spot, also broadcast on the internet halfway between the clip and the short film, we discover the infinite variety of sports practiced in Diego Suarez by hundreds of men and women, young and old, amateur or professional, and even disabled! The film’s message is clear: the sport is wealth and invites directly the people of Diego Suarez in Madagascar to join the many clubs in the area. Before that, Geoffrey Gaspard was observed through the animation of the “Madasgacar Instagram community” with over 10,000 subscribers.

The opportunity also for the majority of participants to better understand the concept “Rise Madagascar” and see the possibilities of promotion of the region and the country, but also the potential direct economic benefits for operators tourist and indirect for animators passionate about the Instagram community.
