Curt Hahn
Curt Hahn was born and raised in New England. He discovered architecture at Phillips
Exeter Academy and enrolled in architecture school at Washington University.
Filmmaking was his other passion and after attending UCLA's summer session in film
production, he transferred to film school at the Disney-endowed California Institute of the Arts. After getting his BFA in Film from Cal Arts he moved to Nashville and founded Film House.

Film House has grown to become the largest film production company in Tennessee,
moving into its 40,000 square foot studio, editing and office facility in 1996. As CEO, Curt leads a team that produces hundreds of films and TV spots annually. He's directed such performers as Eric Roberts, Steve Talley, Candice Bergen, Teri Garr, Janine Turner, Garth Brooks, Kate Jackson, Amy Grant, Isaac Hayes, Reba McEntire, Shaquille O'Neill and Shania Twain. Curt's a member of the select International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers (IQ) and served as IQ President for two terms. IQ is an invitation-only organization of some of the world's top filmmakers.

Transcendent, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Film House, produces independent
features. Our current projects are “Jubilee”, based on the remarkable true story of Ella Sheppard and the original Fisk Jubilee Singers, and “Deadline”, which will be released in theaters nationwide in 2012. “Deadline” stars Steve Talley and Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts as reporters investigating the murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama that has gone uninvestigated, unsolved and unpunished for almost twenty years.

Curt wrote and directed Transcendent's first film, " No Regrets” starring Janine Turner and Kate Jackson. “No Regrets” has been a worldwide success, with repeated airings on HBO in Europe, Lifetime Television domestically, Hallmark in the U.K. and in dozens of other countries around the world. Next Transcendent co-produced “Two Weeks” starring two time Academy Award winner Sally Field, Ben Chaplin and Tom Cavanagh, with L.A.-based writer-director Steve Stockman. “Two Weeks” was released theatrically by MGM in major markets across the country in 2007. Transcendent produces the kind of inspiring, uplifting films that are often overlooked by Hollywood; meaningful stories that speak to the heart.

Maisha Dyson
Maisha Dyson’s film credits include The Scorpion King, How I Spent My Summer Vacation, Call Me Chris and Breakfast at Ben's. She has made television appearances on Savannah, Another World, As the World Turns, Boston Public, Eve, Las Vegas, Coupling and Not Now Kitty.
