Many producers have approached Ron Paul about doing a documentary regarding Paul's philosophical views.
Until now, Ron Paul has turned down all such overtures.

I am pleased to report that Ron Paul just now authorized a long-time friend, Charles Goyette, to make that documentary. Goyette asked me to break the news.
The Ron Paul Documentary project is underway today with the launch of a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign.
"I feel flattered to be an important part of this," said Paul. "I think some big things are happening. Libertarianism and freedom - as bad as things look on the surface - I believe the rumblings are just wonderful there and in my relationship with young people."
"I felt it was absolutely essential to fund this film at the grassroots level," said Goyette. "The integrity of the project demands that it be independent."
Goyette helped raise contributions in the 2008 and 2012 Ron Paul Presidential Money Bomb fundraisers that set new records for political fundraising.
His latest book is Red and Blue and Broke All Over - Restoring America's Free Economy.
Goyette is an award-winning radio personality. He has often been called upon to share his views with national televisions audiences on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, CNBC and Fox Business Channel.
In 2013 - 2014 Goyette arranged the national syndication of twice-daily radio commentaries by Ron Paul, which he also produced and co-hosted. Ron Paul's America was broadcast on 125 radio stations across the nation.
Goyette also joined with Ron Paul for the sponsored program Ron Paul and Charles Goyette - The Weekly Podcast, long-form conversations about news and political philosophy. The Weekly Podcast is available on iTunes.
The Ron Paul Documentary will be released in the first half of 2016.
