Karen was fortunate enough to meet Dick in Bali during the making of Oney Anwar – Chasing the Dream and has received valuable advice on film making over a four year period. Veteran filmmaker and photographer Dick Hoole was one of the first to document surfing in Bali, following the release of Morning of the Earth. From 1973 he covered the phenomenal growth of surfing in Bali, the changes it brought to the dirt poor villagers of the Bukit and the first generation of Balinese surfers. He captured Lopez and other greats on their virgin voyages to Indonesia. Since then, he has captured thousands of images and film footage of the most outstanding surfers in the world at the best surf breaks.
