1. Keith Maitland, Producer/Director

    After college at the University of Texas, Keith Maitland was chosen to participate in the Director's Guild of America (DGA) Trainee Program in New York City. Upon completion of the two-year program, Maitland became one of the youngest members of the DGA, working alongside directors including Woody Allen, Janusz Kaminski, and Joel Schumacher, as well as on NBC's Law & Order. In 2001, he created IllegalFilms, taking the lessons he learned in the narrative world, and applying them to his own independent documentaries. Maitland’s first short film, The Grown-Up, won an audience award at the 2003 Santa Monica Film Festival. The Eyes of Me is his first feature-length film.
