Brough Johnson


University of California (Santa Cruz) graduate Brough Johnson cut her cutting room teeth editing news reports down under. After getting a break editing doco Children of a Nation, she has accrued a diverse slate of Kiwi credits, and is at home crafting stories from fact (Both Worlds, Queer Selfies) and fiction. Johnson’s dramatic credits include episodes of primetime TV (Step Dave, Go Girls), Power Rangers and short films.

Personally, my favourite moments in the edit suite are when I find my face mimicking the emotional experience of the person on screen. That engagement is utterly enticing. It’s my job to elicit this same response in my audience. Brough Johnson on her role as editor, from her website
