Good interview. The interviewer knew the right questions to ask.
i love your audio quality. I love your channel.
I needed to skateboard it up or Mountain Dew it up
"We'll have to wait a while to see the result of that experiment"...um yeah we now know...
Sorkin really is a modern day Shakespeare.
When he's describing something that took place elsewhere, his descriptions are on point. He talks in action lines. Lol.
I am sorry but I have to say this : Why does the interview sound so privileged and kinda arrogant? Sometimes, the tone of his voice sounds like he was mocking Sorkin or scoffing him - not deliberately but the small sounds he makes. Gee.
amazing interview! very informative and enjoyable.

Loved this interview - super comprehensive. I somehow walked away with a better understanding of Sorkin as a writer AND a better understanding of these various roles in filmmaking.
Genius. No other word to describe him
Blonde. That's another word.
2 drafts and he's ready to submit it? That's impressive.
I like him.
This was incredibly insightful. Thanks so much for uploading this vid :)
He looks like a tanned Stephen King
Cheyevsky indeed. Sorkin wrote an intelligent movie, almost an endangered species.
He is such a fucking good speaker! I normal don't notice how articulate people are but the words just seem to flow out of his mouth.
"Words just seem to flow out of his mouth" 31:10
He's a great writer, you must be blocking out him saying "uh" every two seconds.
Sorkin writes dialogue as good as anybody! West Wing. The Newsroom. What a mind.
For the love of all things holy and sacred, frame your shot and leave the zoom alone! The ridiculous zooming in and out is distracting. If you wanted different framing throughout, setup multiple cameras or shoot it multiple times with different framing and angles.
For someone who writes such brilliant dialogue he's very poorly spoken, I've never heard anyone say uhh and umm so much
I'm betting he's good with dialogue because he rewrites a lot, and when he talks, he doesn't get the chance to rewrite.
Quentin Tarantino & the Coen brothers are great writers but aren't well spoken, or whatever you want to call it. Robert Kennedy, JFK, Obama, etc. they are great speakers but they don't write their speeches.
+roloug95 People who think tend to, you know, think before they say anything. Not all writers are great public speakers.
@roloug95 If you were paying attention to the interview, it's not noticeable. He's not giving a speech, he's trying to convey thoughts, which he did very well.
Have you ever been interviewed before? It can be pretty damn tough keeping your thoughts flowing when you have lights and a big ass camera in front your face.
I love the idea as dialogue as music. I hope he writes a book.
His voice is cool and smooth. Almost like spike speigel
With him saying he loves courtroom dramas, I wonder what his views are on The Caine Mutiny (1954). I could see some of that inspiring A Few Good Men.
I am genuinely upset and visibly brought down by the fact that Studio 60 will never have another season - absolutely incredible TV.
Always nice to see this themed comment! Studio 60 just ran through my DVD again this past week!....
Great interview. You should have done a walk and talk with him though
Too bad that isn't the line lol.
I found this much more interesting than celeberties even more than directors which has deeper view than celeberties.
I WILL RIP OFF YOUR HEAD AND SHIT DOWN YOUR THROAT best line EVER.
Brian Bell you fucked with the wrong Marine
Incredible talent. Studio 60 was good, Newsroom brilliant and West Wing unbelievable. WW was best show ever on TV and I am not a Democrat!
AS: "While, yes Jesse was born to play this part, dont confuse Jesse with Mark Zuckerberg, Jesse is the nicest sweetest guy in the world.' Thank you Aaron.
please people, watch Studio 60 and The West Wing. He's awesome.
What an excellent interview. Candid as they come!
Truly a genius. Very inspiring. As an aspiring filmmaker/screenwriter I am thankful to have cone across this video.
As did I. Turns out to be a defining film, one that will be studied for years... A perfect look at this moment in history, a time capsule. Fincher and Sorkin are geniuses.
I honestly did think that they were exploiting Facebook for money (before I found out Fincher directing). I didn't have expectations before I watched this, and I was blown away. Amazing film!
My hero. Would love to meet him one day. Genius.
Best writer in Hollywood.
An inspiring interview. Thank you. Aaron Sorkin is simply amazing.
The West Wing is my favorite show ever!!!
I had TOTALLY blanked out on his writing "Malice"! One of the best "modern-day" thrillers with a stellar cast (Alec Baldwin/Nicole Kidman/Bill Pullman & a great scene by Anne Bancroft) which can certainly be held of against the best of the genre, and also a proof that Sorkin can certainly write beyond "Behind The Scenes Of 'X'"
SUNY Purchase. Apparently he applied there and got wait listed. I bet they feel silly about that now!
Where did you graduate from? Cool to hear him speak!
He's going to be speaking at my commencement ceremony, I feel so lucky.
he's freakin' great!
@Silverwire100 Even so, @pchiekrie was right, a script is not an idea in and of itself, ergo William Richert could not invent it. By Aaron Sorkin writing a similar script even based on a similar concept (which Richert himself probably got from various books) as the formers he is still creating something anew. "a guy who builds a nice chair doesn't owe money to everyone who ever has built a chair" Hence, why similarity is the quality of LIKENESS not BEING THE SAME AS.
@Silverwire100 Yes, Aaron Sorkin stole from William Richerts Script. The studio bought the rights to William Richert's script, and Aaron Sorkin might possibly have read it. However, it doesn't matter. Why? Because the studio owned the rights to the script, they could do whatever they wanted to with it! I'm a screenwriter myself and yes sometimes you sell scripts that get changed by the studios, tough shit. Apparently, he didn't read the contract when he signed over his screenplay to the studio.
@Silverwire100 absolutely, the number of great projects he's been a part of he could not have had any talent with any of them, I mean the founders of My______ were there first with a great idea. They should have 500 million users and billions of dollars not MarkZuck. Hey I run a SN website it only has a few hundred users. M Zuckerberg stole that idea and brought none of his soul to it. I'm a struggling website designer and talented dude. That douche bag. I'm so jealous of his success.
@Silverwire100 they said the same about Zuckerberg and facebook, it's not the inventor that matters but the visionary who has the genius to carry it through and give it wings.
YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!! Of what really happened with Mark and the lawsuits...
Excellent. This is one of the best interviews Mr. Sorkin has done for TSN. He usually just repeats the same answers, but this interview got into some other issues. I liked hearing about AFGM and working with Rob Reiner.
This was great. But was there more that got cut off at the end?
Very educational. I loved his honest annoyance/defense at the idea that he fabricated parts of the story in The Social Network. Loved even more hearing a bit about his process, which mirrors in a lot of ways the instruction of Robert McKee. I bet a lot of great artist (not just writers) have a similar process. Well done.
