In 2000, she founded the production company and casting agency "Vostock 1" in Berlin, and subsequently was responsible for the casting of Gordian Maugg's "Denk ich an Deutschland in der Nacht. Das Leben des Heinrich Heine" (2006, TV) and Karola Hattop's "Das Morphus-Geheimnis" (2008).

In 2003, Beyer made her directorial debut with the TV documentary "Der junge Herr Bürgermeister", for which she received the Hans-Klein-Medienpreis. During the following years, she completed several TV features, among them the documentary series "Damals in der DDR" (2005-2007) and a segment of the omnibus film "24h Berlin – Ein Tag im Leben" (2009).

The 2011 documentary "Werden Sie Deutscher" portrays immigrants who participate in German integration courses and was Beyer's first cinema release. The film premiered at the Leipzig  Documentary Film Festival and was theatrically released in April 2013.
