Brit-born Caroline Johnstone directed an eclectic slate of documentaries, reality shows and corporate projects, many for Wellington company Top Shelf. Always up for a challenge, she worked on subjects ranging from coins, to con artists, to drag performers (one-off doco The Drag Kings). Described by those close as a “total adventure-seeking thrill seeker”, Johnstone died after a fall at Whakapapa skifield, on 31 August 2013.

She was wonderful to be around, had huge energy and commitment to whatever she engaged in. She was an amazing woman and had an incredible joy for life and living ... and she was a bloody amazing director. Johnstone's colleagues at Top Shelf, 3 September 2013
