Jigabot LLC, a Highland, Utah-based provider of robotic devices, will be co-hosting a panel about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Jan. 25.

Jigabot, along with co-host Quadrocopter, will discuss drone cinematography, safety and new regulations for the industry. The panel, called #DRONEDANCE, will run from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Jigabot produces AIMe, a robotic camera auto-framing system that can be mounted on UAVs. Sterling Van Wagenen, Sundance Institute co-founder, says, “Jigabot’s AIMe makes it even easier for independent filmmakers to craft their stories on a small budget – which is perfectly in line with the spirit of Sundance.”

In September 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration granted regulatory exemptions to six aerial photo and video production companies to use UAVs in production.

“AIMe is the only robotic camera auto-framing technology that can be used indoors and outdoors, at close and at far distances,” comments Donna Root, Jigabot co-founder and chief strategy officer. “It can be attached to a drone or quadcopter and can be used to track actors, performers, athletes or other objects.”

The Sundance Film Festival is running Jan. 22 – Feb. 1 and hosts more than 40,000 people a year.
