Understanding Sun Tzu on the Art of War - Storyboards

The book Understanding Sun Tzu on the Art of War started out as a documentary script.  When the cost to produce the documentary as written proved more than available funding, my agent and I decided to hold off on that documentary and build a track record with a book first.  The following is a compilation of the storyboards that we used to give a flavor of the intended documentary.  As a reader of Understanding Sun Tzu on the Art of War, you can use these storyboards as a visual supplement as you read through the sections and chapters.  I have arranged the storyboards in chapter order and provide cues to show their corresponding place in the book.
