Bellevue filmmakers Ilona Rossman Ho and Shannon Hart-Reed won a Northwest Regional Emmy award in the special-event coverage category Saturday for their short film "Kites Over Washington."
Hart-Reed directed the film and Ho produced it.
"Kites Over Washington" documents a temporary art installation of 131 long-tail kites that flew over Gasworks Park to promote Credit Unions of Washington.
Hart-Reed's crew captured all the footage in one day.
Hart-Reed wrote lyrics for the score, and her friend Chris Darrow performed and wrote the music. Seattle musician Sean Fairchild performed vocals.
Women in Film/Seattle and Credit Unions of Washington provided funding for the project.
