In It To Win It
‘In it to Win it” Film
officially announced and in production to star Candidate Salahi
Veteran Film Producer John Campbell of Campbell Media Group is now filming Tareq Salahi and his run for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Campbell has been producing television documentaries for over 23 years, including the nationally released AMERICA’S TEAM: BEING A U.S. AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRD; THE HIDDEN ADIRONDACKS; ENTER THE HAGGIS: LIVE AT LANIGAN’S BALL and more.
“Tareq’s story is powerful. When I learned that he was running for Virginia Governor, I immediately thought of documenting the process….more as a human interest story…a story of resilience and the human spirit. Here we have a guy whose triumphs and tribulations have been aired globally ….and could have easily hidden for a few years…yet he didn’t. After much soul searching, he decides to go back to his roots…to his passions…one being politics. This documentary has absolutely no political motivation one way or another” says Campbell.
Salahi says…”I look forward to viewers learning who the REAL Tareq Salahi is. Much has been said about me over the past few years that’s inaccurate. People, other than those close to me, have no idea what I’m about. This documentary will give viewers a chance to a more personal side of me beyond all the media hype. It’s also a story of never giving up. If I can pull myself up by the boot straps, anyone can. I’m hoping my story will motivate people to do just that. One other thing this project will do is feature my passion for the great state of Virginia. I’m at a point in my life where I want to make a difference beyond what I was able do for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Wolf Trap and the three Virginia Governors I have already served. Being the next Governor of Virginia will do just that. It’s important to note that I’m not the creative behind this documentary….Mr. John Campbell and his team are. They approached me after I announced my intention to run for Governor. What comes out in the project is what went down. This is not a scripted film or a guided reality TV Show”
Filming of “In it to Win it” has been underway as of September 16th 2012 at a kick-off celebration which was billed as “Crash the Candidates BBQ”, playing off the infamous allegations that the Salahis “party-crashed” an invite only party at the White House while starring in the Real Housewives Television franchise by Bravo TV, owned by the parent company, NBC Universal. That episode of Real Housewives was organized and captured on cameras by Bravo TV during President Obama’s first official state dinner, which honored Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
