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 myself that you've purchased.

You've probably also listened to my Silent Film Music podcast or watched one of the 60+ rare silent films on my YouTube channel.
The media like this that I share with fans outside of shows or DVDs  are labor-of-love projects. The hours I spend recording, editing and posting podcast episodes, the time and work I put in to scanning, editing, titling, scoring and posting rare silent films on YouTube – have been put in on sort of a "hobby" status.

Call me crazy, but I know I'd be inclined (or motivated) to put more rare silents from my collection on YouTube or do my podcast more often if these projects had some kind of financial support behind them.

I hope you'll consider being a Patreon patron of my podcast and YouTube videos. This way, whether it's a buck, a sawbuck or anything more than that, you're letting me know you enjoy the films and podcasts and you're helping me do more of them each time I post something on YouTube or upload a podcast episode.

Reward – you'll get exclusive access to hear new podcast episodes and view rare silents posted to my YouTube channel before they're available to the public.

Thanks…and I'll see you at the silents!
