Creator of ‘Sorkinisms’ Video Chats with Romenesko

Media blogger Jim Romenesko tracked down Kevin Porter, the 22-year-old Los Angeles resident behind of the “Sorkinisms: A Supercut” video that went viral this week. Porter, a professional video producer, told Romenesko he’d been working on the video that highlights Aaron Sorkin’s penchant for recycled dialogue since 2010, but picked up the pace a few months ago to have it finished in time for the Newsroom premiere.

The video went viral shortly after being posted to YouTube on Monday morning, much to Porter’s surprise.

“I definitely underestimated people’s interest in it,” he told Romenesko. “I estimated it would get probably a couple of thousand view the first week. But the reaction has been larger than I ever imagined. Did I think the LA Times, Entertainment Weekly, Grantland and the Huffington Post would pick it up? I didn’t.”

Porter, a long time Sorkin fan, wrote on Twitter that he’s thinking about doing a follow-up video: “Maybe Part II premieres once The Newsroom season is over. There’ll be loads of material.”
