Richard Lasley was engaged to create storyboards for the entire movie except for the final climactic showdown at the karate tournament, when the director John Avildson preferred to film more spontaneously, with multi-camera setups.

Postproduction, the (266) pages of storyboards, averaging 4-panels per page, were sleeved and assembled in sequence in this 11.25" x 11.25" x 3" black 3-ring binder to aid editors in articulating Avildson's vision through Lasley's masterful drawings.
