* Passions' former Ethan Crane, Travis Schuldt, has just released a new DVD. Schuldt plays Randall in the film, Automatic. It was shot in 2005 and spent a successful year on the festival circuit before being released this month. The film revolves around a group of six characters as they try to break free from their behavior patterns once they have grown stale and automatic. Schuldt also served as the producer of the film. The production team issued this press release: 'We are proud of this film and are excited to finally release it into the world. It's getting harder and harder to maintain an independent identity in this ever corporate film industry but we are dedicated to sharing stories about the human experience with all its facets and flaws. This film is about that part of all of us.'
