The days of shooting straight to 8mm film are gone for most people, that said there is a small community of film makers still specialising in the craft and as a result you can still buy fully operational cameras and film online.
The film they shoot can be digitised without too much hassle in most major cities, so the vintage cameras provide a unique perspective, far removed from the innumerable “vintagized” iPhone videos online.
Articles that Ben has written have been covered on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, Autoweek Magazine, Wired Magazine, Autoblog, Gear Patrol, Jalopnik, The Verge, and many more.
Silodrome was founded by Ben back in 2010, in the years since the site has grown to become a world leader in the alternative and vintage motoring sector, with well over a million monthly readers from around the world and many hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
