David Pierce, a graduate of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, started in the Silent Network library counting videotapes and ultimately became Vice President of Production and Network Operations — a job he held until 2000 through The Silent Network and its new incarnation as Kaleidoscope Television. (Note that this is one of the extremely rare photos of David not wearing his signature hat). Also, this photo was taken at the fabulous Maverick Video Productions studio in San Antonio, TX., where the network moved after it was sold in 1990. Without the gang at Maverick, there would have been no production, no accolades, no awards, no fun whatsoever. Sheldon I. Altfeld, the Network’s founder, was hired to produce and direct the initial programming for the new owners and with the help of David Pierce, managed to crank out more than 200 half-hour programs in less than a year.
