    Mr. Kayvan Mashayekh- Mr. Mashayekh mmigrated to Houston, Texas at
    age 11 from Iran. He graduated from Rice University in 1989 with a
    BA in Economics and Managerial Studies. After taking a year off to
    start an entrepreneurial business venture, he attended South Texas
    College of Law and obtained his Juris Doctorate in 1993. He began
    practicing as a criminal defense lawyer in Houston, but after three
    years, quit the practice of law and enrolled at the New York Film
    Academy to pursue his lifelong dream of writing, producing and
    directing. He created Guide Company Films as a result of the mild
    success of his first short film, "The Tip." His company is dedicated
    to the advancement of the independent film movement by concentrating
    on human interest stories that have international appeal.

    Mr. Mashayekh has written, produced and directed his first feature
    film called "The Keeper: The Legend of Omar Khayyam" which was shot
    in Five Cities and Three Continents in a remarkable 37 days of
    actual filming. Filmed primarily in Bukhara and Samarkand,

    an international cast including world renown actors such as Vanessa
    Redgrave, Rade Serbedizja, Moritz Bleibtreu, Diane Baker, and C.
    Thomas Howell.

    The film commenced its theatrical run in movie theaters across the
    US beginning in June 2005 and ended up playing in 14 US cities for
    nearly one year. In addition to its Box Office success, the film
    raised nearly $200,000 for Children's and Cancer Charities in
    Houston, New York and London, England as a direct result of it's non-
    profit screenings.
