BELLEVUE, Wash. (6/10/10)--A short film, “Kites over Washington,” which documents a temporary art installation of 131 long-tail kites that flew over a Bellevue, Wash., park as a promotional stunt for Washington credit unions, won a Northwest Regional Emmy Award. Bellevue filmmakers Illona Rossman Ho and Shannon Hart-Reed made the film, with Ho producing and Hart-Reed directing (Bellevue Reporter June 8). Credit Unions of Washington and Women in Film/Seattle provided funding for the project. Each of the 131 kites represented a member credit union in the state. “I was really going for a feel-good moment--unexpected visuals, sunny skies and a feeling of relaxation,” Hart-Reed told the newspaper.
