SEATTLE - A short film documenting last September's "Kites Over Washington" viral ad featuring 131 man-sized kites representing each of the state's credit unions won a regional Emmy award in the special event category.

"Kites Over Washington," produced by Bellevue filmmakers Ilona Rossman Ho and Shannon Hart-Reed, documented a temporary art installation of 131 long-tail kites that flew over Gasworks Park to promote Credit Unions of Washington during rush hour last Sept. 10. The seven-foot kites were launched on the north side of town, just a stone's throw from the Space Needle. Each of the kites had a blue dot and the credit union label.

Women in Film/Seattle and Credit Unions of Washington provided funding for the project.
