More on ‘Bird’s Eye’ and actor/screenwriter Erin Beute


Bird’s Eye was among a host of exceptional short films that screened at this year’s Fort Myers Film Festival. Written by and starring Erin Beute, this Skyra Studios’ indie short has won a considerable number of awards both pre and post FMff, including Best Florida Film at Tally Shorts, Best Short Narrative at Bonita Springs International Film Festival and Best Florida Made Film at Fort Myers Beach International Film Festival. This past weekend (September 28 & 29), it screened at its 12th and 13th film festival and recorded its 6th win at the Rendezvous Film Festival. It was also a finalist at the Central Florida (CenFlo) Film Festival. Erin Beute also received Best Actress honors.

While the short may be nearing the end of its film festival run, the story is only on fermata. Screenwriter Erin Beute has converted the script from a short into a feature, and is hopeful that the story will continue in that format … although there’s no timeline on how long it will take to secure funding and film the full-length version.

Neither Beute nor fellow filmmaker Scott Poiley have been resting on Bird’s Eye’s laurels. Skrya Studio has new short film it plans to release in time for Halloween this October. It is appropriately titled Shining.

And the made-for-TV Lifetime movie Patsy & Loretta premieres on Lifetime on October 19 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Erin portrays June Carter in the film. The film stars Megan Hilty as Patsy Cline and Jessie Mueller as Loretta Lynn. Hilty was previously seen on Broadway in Wicked and 9 to 5: The Musical and on television in NBC’s series Smash. Mueller won a Tony Award in 2014 for her portrayal of Carole King in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and has also been seen on stage in recent productions of the musicals Carousel, Waitress, and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.

Beute, director Scott Poiley and Skrya Studios have a lot of other projects under development, so viewers will be seeing more from this dynamic Orlando-based pairing.
