Jupiter filmmakers finalists in Butterfinger competition

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A pair recently put together a one minute video as part of a national contest for Butterfingers Candy Bar.

The filmmakers, Vinny Chimato and Steve Clark, are chasing $25,000. That's what the winner gets from Butterfingers for the top video. The two are working on a movie in our area called 'Turkles'. They thought of the idea for the Butterfinger's contest one night after a day of shooting the movie.

"[We] went to a local pub, shot it in one day, and put it all together," said Chimato.

"We had a lot of fun making this," added Clark. "And we want to win, so hopefully that will happen."

Vinny did the editing, and Steve did the music.

Their video is called 'Catch of the day'. Watch their video and their competition on the ProtectYourButterfingerbar Web site. We've also posted the video at the top of the page.
