Written, directed and starring Portland filmmaker Darcy Miller, ONE BIRD AT A TIME is a heartfelt, comedic web series about what happens when you get in over your head trying to do good in the world.
Julie (Miller) and Jeff (Jason Rouse) are your ordinary Portland couple, except do-gooder and lovable neurotic Julie is obsessively driven to help those in need and ends up stumbling through her own misconceptions in the process. As she tries earnestly to help friends and neighbors dealing with issues like homelessness, poverty, and mental illness—yet misses time and again—she has to wonder: is it even possible for one person to make a difference? The world of ONE BIRD features a range of relatable, offbeat, kind-hearted characters: hapless Jeff and Julie, Julie's over the top friend Gena (Ayanna Berkshire), needy therapist Dr. Helfmann (Dana Millican), their homeless neighbor Frank (Patrick Green), an old classmate who’s fallen on hard times, Lizzie (Jana Lee Hamblin), kind but faltering James (Victor Mack), and many others (including Rocco the dog, who sees Jeff and Julie through every hurdle).
