We are the measure of all things. And the beauty of our creation,
of our art is proportional to the beauty of ourselves, of our souls
– Jonas Mekas
In the early 70's I made Morning of the Earth because I really wanted to make a positive film about surfing and the world. I always wanted to make a surfing film, you know, ever since I saw the early Bud Brown films in Australia that were just starting to come in from overseas. They were the first surfing films to arrive. When I saw those I was pretty inspired by what he was doing.
I was designing books at the time and I remember doing this design for the Catholic church, and I was commissioned to do it by two nuns. I remember walking along the street with them one day, and they were really lovely these women, and they said what do you really want to do with your life, what would you really like to do if you had the opportunity to do whatever you wanted to do, what would you like to do? And I said that I'd like to make a really beautiful, positive film about the world. That's what I'd like to do. And you know not long after that I was travelling up and down the coast making a surfing film and Morning Of The Earth came from it.
This is a website dedicated to the movie, the people, the lifestyle.
