Corynn Egreczky is in her fourth year with Hurricane Productions, where she works on videography and photography projects for a variety of events. She's been interested in video since she was young and studied video and photography at Rutgers University.
"I have always loved movies, so I wanted to create my own," says Corynn.
Since graduating, Corynn has been very active in the industry. She's worked on feature films, short films, commercials, and corporate films, in many different roles, including director, assistant camera, production assistant, and VFX artist.
Corynn was running her own video business when she met Hurricane founders Vincent and Strato. They were all working the same wedding (Corynn as videographer; Vincent and Strato as the MC and DJ) and they all simply clicked.
"We exchanged info that night, and four years later I’m still shooting weddings with them," Corynn says.
Although Corynn shoots a lot of private events like weddings and sweet 16s for Hurricane, one of her favorite projects was covering the Rutgers Dance Marathon (#FTK – For The Kids), which benefitted the Embrace Kids charity.
"It was very moving, and we got some killer footage," she says.
What Corynn loves most about working with Hurricane is how well everyone collaborates. She appreciates the great communication throughout the day, and the fact that they're always willing to work with her to get the best possible footage and images. And of course, she adds, Hurricane knows how to get a party started!
In terms of her professional style and approach, Corynn says her clients have described her as a "chill shooter."
"Throwing a wedding or running an event is stressful enough, and I make it my personal goal to keep everyone cool and having fun," she explains.
In her spare time, Corynn is currently renovating a beach house in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
