Story connects us all
Start with our story.
Working with professionals who are artists and passionate about filmmaking is crucial to the production of incredible videos. A lifelong passion for storytelling led Ed Parada to build the studio and crew roster as early as 2006. Since then, Shake Up Productions has provided exceptional crews and produced videos with vision and impact.
Edgardo Parada has been producing and editing films in New York City for 18 years. Born in Manila and raised in both Parañaque and New Jersey, he is a dual citizen of both the Philippines and the United States. Being one of only three Filipino students in his grade school left an imprint on Edgardo, who learned early on the significance of representation in our communities and media. When Edgardo was 16, he was accepted into the NYU Future Filmmakers Workshop, whose mission is to support black, brown and women filmmakers craft the path to their careers. He went on to pursue a BFA in Film from NYU Tisch, and to launch his independent company, Shake Up Productions, which builds crews and produces video for live events, branded content, corporate communications, documentaries, and fiction narratives. Notable projects include producing and editing for tv series Transborder Art (dir. Graciela Cassel), feature documentary Garifuna Nation (dir. Carlos de Jesus), and short documentary Under the Whale (dir. James C Martin, winner: Grand Jury Award for Experimental Documentary at the American Filmatic Arts Awards).
As an educator, Edgardo teaches editing, post-production audio, and camera fundamentals at his alma mater Future Filmmaker Workshop, Downtown Community Television Center (DCTV), and Brooklyn Information and Culture (BRIC TV). Whether in the classroom, on set, or in the studio, his mission is to share stories that come from underrepresented perspectives, and that emphasize our common humanity.
