The R Awards is an evening to recognize all athletes competing for Rutgers. The red carpet event recognizes, via both awards and videos, the many accomplishments of the Scarlet Knights during each season on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Alongside Rutgers Athletics, Hurricane facilitates audio visual coordination, lighting, music and stage direction for the event.
R-Awards represents a night to celebrate Rutgers' most dedicated athletes. The night is also filled with laughs and lighthearted video vignettes. The Carpool Karaoke (R-Pool Karaoke) series was a blast to produce and was well received during the event is it was played at the RAC on the massive center-court screens.
Hiring a new head football coach demands dedicated media support. MediaCutlet and Hurricane partner with Rutgers Athletics' in-house media team to quickly turn around high-quality content.
When RFootball opened a new student tailgate area, they turned to MediaCutlet and Hurricane to help. With over 1 million impressions, "The Alley Social Story" campaign was one of our most successful in terms of organic reach.
The mission of the Rutgers University Riot Squad is to create, reinforce, and enhance the school spirit for Rutgers University. The cool thing about this video is that it was shot, edited, and packaged all in the same day.
Combining careful planning and a highly skilled video team lead to not only the creation of this heart-pounding intro video, but also truly capturing "R Hoops" culture.
When a video needs to be displayed on massive jumbotron, the content needs to have a big impact. Rutgers Athletics depends upon MediaCutlet and Hurricane to develop videos for big screens including an introduction video for Men's Basketball, which is played at the start of every home game.
As a major fundraiser for the Embrace Kids Foundation, Dance Marathon serves as not only a Rutgers University event, but a statewide tradition. The 32-hour event is a culmination of a body of work that spans over a year. Hurricane provides professional support and consultation for DM in social media, video production, entertainment, marketing and advancement.
Since 2000, Dance Marathon has donated over $9 million dollars to the Embrace Kids Foundation for families with children who are diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders. It is a university-wide tradition comprised of volunteers who are committed to service, leadership development and fun.
To help celebrate Rutgers 250 year anniversary, the university honored fifty notable fellows. Each of the fifty were responsible for a notable achievement or contribution to society and represented Rutgers in their own unique way. This video presentation was shown during a dinner to honor the fellows and was part of a larger "broadcast package" created for the event.
Rutgers Day features many Rutgers traditions - including a new one - a visit to the Scarlet Knight Statue at The Yard on College Avenue.
Whether its a 'show-opener' for an award show or the reveal of a new automobile model, the bright flash of pyro is a highly desired wow-factor effect.
Several factors make pyrotechnics and fireworks impractical for most events including the risk of fire, smoke detection, and local permit requirements. The Sparkular, cool-gerb effect provides all the wow without any of the safety drawbacks that exist with traditional pyrotechnics.
Our dedicated team of special effects professionals understands the delicate operation of these machines to achieve jaw-dropping effects and visuals. Compliment the Sparkular effect with our lighting and sound production and you've got everything you need for an impressive concert, award show, trade show, or special event.
From grand openings to ground-breaking reveals, Hurricane Productions specializes in providing soup-to-nuts production, lighting, visuals and activation for luxury brands.

The Club Alex concept began as a joke amongst students spending late hours at Alexander Library preparing for finals. Rutgers partners with Hurricane annually to bing this clever anecdote to life as part of 'Senior Week' at the university.
Drawing from a concept originally conceived by students at Wesleyan University, Student DJs assumed the role of famous DJs by playing a set in the style of their chosen artist. The impersonated DJs included Laidback Luke, Hardwell, Kaskade, and Dillon Francis. Hurricane's own DJ Brostradamus headlined the event.
Students who tweeted and posted photos to Instagram using the special hashtag had their posts displayed on screens live, for everyone to see.
As part of Rutgers Student Life's Senior Days programming, Imposterave was an energetic send-off for the graduating class of 2013.

Sigma Chi Fraternity and several Rutgers University National Panhellenic Conference sororities continue to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for the Children's Miracle Network and other philanthropies through an event known as Derby Days. Although Derby Days is a nationwide event hosted by Sigma Chi brothers at many different universities, Rutgers hosts the largest in the country.
Each year, the Greek organizations raise record-breaking totals during the week-long competition. Derby Days culminates with a 'Lip Sync' performance where each organization choreographs a routine and puts on a show for family and friends.
Hurricane Productions provides sound, lighting, projection mapping, stage direction, and social media integration.
