About Ben Model

Hi! I'm Ben Model – I'm a silent film accompanist, historian, exhibitor and DVD label. You probably know me and my work from shows you've bought tickets to or the DVDs I've scored for Kino or produced/released myself on my Undercrank Prods. label.

Starting March 22, 2020, I will be live-streaming a series of silent film shows from my living room, co-hosted by my friend Steve Massa, silent comedy historian. Each show will include a few slapstick comedy shorts, which I will accompany live on piano and which Steve will introduce. Steve will be piped in remotely from his apartment (how's that for social distancing?).

We've all watched YouTube like it was broadcast TV for years. But as of now -- for many people creating works to post there -- it really is more like Public Television, except that your pledge or donation goes directly to the artist(s) making the shows instead of to the broadcasting network.

Steve and I hope that, if you're able and willing, you'll support the show and the work, time and craft we put in to it by signing up. If you haven't used Patreon before, here's how it works --

Basically once you sign up and set up a pledge amount ($1, $2, $837,592.61, etc), each time we do a show that amount will get charged to your CC.

Thanks…and I'll see you at the silents! (Oops, I mean...see you online!)
