The Making of “Mitt” | Institute of Politics
Published on Feb 21, 2014
Greg Whiteley, “Mitt” Director, joined Stuart Stevens, Chief Strategist of Romney for President, Bob White, Romney 2012 Presidential Committee Chairman, and moderator Shira T. Center, Roll Call Politics Editor, for a panel discussion on the making of the documentary “Mitt”. The documentary follows Republican candidate Mitt Romney, his campaign, and family for six years during his 2008 and 2012 bids for the presidency. The panelists recounted their experiences with both the documentary and the Romney campaigns, discussing in detail four clips from the documentary that were screened during the Forum. The panel also responded to questions from the audience, covering topics including public perception of the Romney campaign, the documentary crew’s access to the Romney family, and the decision to release “Mitt” through Netflix rather than through a more conventional format.
