Pop Filter editor's video makes finalist for DATA awards

In the news again is our highly talented and wildly creative Pop Filter editor, Jennifer Baron, with her new music project The Garment District. This time she's in collaboration with filmmaker Keith Tassick as part of the production of the video for her song, "Nature-Nature," which is set to 500 of her photos in this video. The artsy and techy video was just named a finalist for the DATA Awards for--what else--the intersection of arts and tech category, given annually by the Pittsburgh Technology Council (on June 7th this year).

And who's doing vocals? Her lovely and talented cousin, Lucy Blehar from Mt. Lebanon, a student in the theatre program at DePaul University in Chicago. The song was recorded by Pittsburgh native Kevin C. Smith in his Friendship studio. Hats off to all.
