Curt Beech is one of the many art directors working on 2009's Star Trek, under Supervising Art Director Keith Cunningham. [1]

Beech began his Hollywood career as an art department assistant on the 2004 films Criminal (featuring Ellen Geer) and Collateral (starring Bruce McGill). He then coordinated the Los Angeles production unit art department for the Mike Judge comedy Idiocracy, which was filmed in 2004 but not released until 2006. His first film as an assistant art director was the acclaimed 2005 comic drama The Chumscrubber.

He first worked with Star Trek producer/director J.J. Abrams and many other members of the Star Trek production staff as an assistant art director on another Paramount Pictures film, Mission: Impossible III (2006). He was also an assistant art director on the Paramount films War of the Worlds (2005) and Failure to Launch (2006). Beech collaborated with Keith Cunningham and Star Trek set decorator Dawn Brown for the first time on the 2007 Warner Bros. film Ocean's Eleven.

Before Star Trek, Beech completed work as assistant art director on the feature film adaptation of the classic television series Get Smart, which opened in the summer of 2008. One of the stars of this movie is one-time Star Trek: Voyager guest performer The Rock.

Beech has also served as art director on the pilot for the hit series Brothers & Sisters and the upcoming sitcom Miss/Guided, both for ABC. He is currently working on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
