Eternal Waltz

Published by JaZzyMaE Media on

Eternal Waltz is a metaphysical short romance about soul recognition and a love that spans lifetimes.

NEWS: Eternal Waltz received two new awards at the iHollywood Film Festival: Best Cinematography (short film) and Best Short Female Film!

In 1887, when a philandering husband ends the secret romance between his wife and their handsome butler, a tarot card reader uses Strauss’ Blue Danube waltz to help them find each other again in the post-apocalyptic future.

“Love the authentic quality of the production & understated script which complimented the extraordinary performances!!! BRAVO.”
– Erin (iHollywood Film Festival viewer)


German actor (Thorsten Becker) and American actress (Cindy Marinangel) wanted to make a romantic short movie.  All they knew at first was that they wanted it to include the tarot, a waltz to the Blue Danube, and lovers meeting in more than one time/space.

Laurie and Cindy


They asked Laurie Lamson to help them develop the story, write the script, and eventually to direct the film.

When it came time to produce the film, they started a company (Angel Baker Productions) and successfully raised a good-sized budget with an Indiegogo campaign.

They enlisted Raffaele Marraffa as a producer, with JaZzyMaE Media to help out with pre-production tasks as a co-producer.  Laurie donated a lighting package she had won in a contest. This also became an opportunity to collaborate once again with talented Cinematographer Pedja Radenkovic.

After a successful shoot and long post-production process in which Laurie also edited the film, Eternal Waltz was completed.
