Keith Maitland was drawn to the story of the Texas Tower shooting when he first heard about the shooting from an eye-witness — his 7th grade history teacher. A graduate of the University of Texas, Keith began researching for TOWER after the 40th anniversary of the shooting in 2006 and began production on TOWER in 2012. He is also currently directing A SONG FOR YOU: THE AUSTIN CITY LIMITS STORY, about the 40-year history of America’s longest running music television show. Keith Maitland is the director of the ITVS-funded, Emmy-nominated, THE EYES OF ME, a year-in-the-life of four blind teens. EYES broadcast on PBS’s Independent Lens and was honored with a Barbara Jordan Media Award by the State of Texas. Director of documentary features, commercials, and TV series, his credits also include 7 seasons with NBC’s LAW & ORDER as an AD. Keith is a graduate of the Director’s Guild of America Trainee Program and the PBS Producer’s Academy.
