Shirley Bovshow

Shirley and I worked for Screen Door Entertainment on the show "Outer Spaces", a backyard make-over show.

“Chaz Shukat edited the HGTV "Outer Spaces" (garden makeover shows) that I appeared in as the guest designer. As the editor of the show, Chaz and I didn't interact directly but I sought him out, to thank him because I was so impressed with his work! Chaz was able to take tedious footage from a two day garden makeover show and craft an exciting, well paced story that was entertaining and informative. His work not only culled the best from the on camera personalities, he was also able to make the garden project come alive with his insightful use of before and after footage and skillful extraction of humor from fleeting moments. Chaz's editing talent was not lost on me as the designer of the garden makeover projects as he made both my designs and me, look great! I look forward to working with Chaz again in the future and enjoying his excellent story telling talent and that great sense of humor that is very Chaz! Shirley Bovshow” - Shirley Bovshow
