Flying High at UCI: UCI Media Drone

UCI Media has a fully licensed and ‘pilot certified’ drone operator and is ready to ‘take to the skies’ to capture UCI from a bird’s eye view.

“With the rapid progression of technology, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve,” says Iain Grainger, Director for UCI Media. “We are very thankful to UCI Risk Management, John Wayne Airport, and UCOP for helping us to get our clearance.”

UCI Media operates as a Media Services unit for the entire campus, and now they’re prepared to showcase UCI in a way we’ve never explored.

The academic world is changing all around us.

“To continue to thrive as successful schools and departments over the coming years and beyond, we must look ahead, understand the trends, forces, and social impact of video and media,” continues Grainger.  “UCI Media is committed to help and shape UC Irvine in the future and move swiftly to prepare for what’s to come.”

UCI Media offers great service and high production quality that has the served the campus for the last twenty five years. Their services cover all forms of video and media production including broadcast television, promotional/marketing videos, training materials, live event production, live webcasting, green screen filming, and now drone filming and photography.
