"One thing that surprises me every year is that the pieces I like the least or seem the hardest to work with come out the best," Hampton says. "It [forces] people to be more creative." She says the finished product can have a much different mood than the music-less film or film-less music originally entered. One of her favorite exchanges involved a soundtrack including a whispery piano rendition of Cher's "Believe."
"[The filmmakers] made it into a comedy about a guy who was heartbroken about his breakup with a girlfriend and finds love with a homeless guy," Hampton says. "And that just goes to show you: Art really is subjective!" The finished products will be unveiled today at 7 p.m.
Wed., July 26, 7 p.m.
