Passions’ Martsolf and Cardillo in Gaydar
With Passions now behind them, two of the series’ former stars have already moved on to another project together. The charming Eric Martsolf (Ethan Winthrop) will be joining the equally charming Erin Cardillo (Esme Vanderheusen) to star in a new short film by writer-producer Jennifer Medvin. The film, titled Gaydar, tells the story of a lesbian who continually falls for straight women. To help her out of this appalling predicament, she enlists the help of The Master, a guide who will teach her the ways of gaydar, thus helping her avoid some of the more painful pitfalls of lesbian love.
Gaydar is a parody of the popular master/student films such as The Karate Kid and Kill Bill. It will be shot around Los Angeles by Karen Wilkens, who just happens to be an Emmy nominated director who has been working on the Passions directing team for years. Previous to joining up with Passions, she directed for the now defunct soap Another World, scooping up a Directors Guild of America honor in the process. In addition to Martsolf and Cardillo, the film will also star Gregory Zarian and Jenny Shimizu, with the promise of a celebrity cameo or two.
Gaydar is being produced by Myrina films, who are currently seeking donations to help fund this and other projects. Those who donate now will be eligible to win tickets to see Cindy Lauper on her True Colors tour or even a producer credit. For more information, please check out their official site.
