“Pics or it didn’t happen” is so 2013. Thanks to the Sigma Nu brothers at Ole Miss, there’s now a new form of evidence you’ll need in order to prove your fraternity just had one of the most epic outdoor parties in college history: a drone.
During Ole Miss’s Double Decker weekend back in April, the Sigma Nus hired drone photographer Jenner Jordan to film their “Woodstock” party at the fraternity house. The three-minute sequence offers an inside look of the event, complete with aerial footage of the fraternity house and sweeping views of the crowd. Drones have been used to film extreme sports and other things, but this may very well be the first time they’ve been used in Greek life.
Ever since Ole Miss Woodstock, Jordan, who is also a student at Ole Miss, says he’s talked with frats at several different SEC schools that want to have their ragers filmed from above. “We’ve had calls from Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, there’s a few other ones—they’re thinking about the pricing and if it makes sense. We’re also in the process of getting a training camp going to train fliers to work in different states. Right now I only have two other fliers,” said Jordan during an interview with Vice Media.
The niche market for independent drone operators is so small, the government hasn’t even issued regulations for personal drone use yet. That’s some next level shit right there–literally.
