"Music is 50% of the content of my films. Music allows us to focus more intently on feelings, to calm things down, though it can just as easily destroy the mood."With CLOCKS the filmmaker began her collaboration with composer Elen Kats-Chernin, having developed a fascination for her music previously. Her next animated film, SMASH, is a series of impressions and images in which we can see the composer at work. In both these films the music of Kats-Chernin was performed by the Modern Ensemble. SMASH is based partly on Winter's own experiences, for since she was in an accident in 1983, Winter has had to rely on crutches to move around. For JUST IN TIME the filmmaker worked with Simon Stockhausen. This film has no dialogue and features images and music that combine to create an impression of the author's voyage throughout the United States. Winter's films have brought her tremendous success, as a result of which the artist is free to decide on the productions she undertakes.
