When you go to a Ronnie Larsen-produced play at The Foundry in Wilton Manors, you never know quite what you’re going to get.

It could be something over-the-top wild like Larsen’s “Truck Stop Sally’s Sex Party” or Patrick Cuccaro’s upcoming drag musical “Slammer Girlz.”

Or it could be a very different sort of play, like Larsen’s autobiographically-inspired “The Actors” or the one currently playing through Dec. 30: Lucas Hnath’s “Red Speedo.”

Collaborating for the third time with guest director Stuart Meltzer, the artistic director of Miami’s Zoetic Stage, Larsen is presenting an Obie Award-winning play about the moral compromises of an Olympic-class swimmer and those who would profit from his success.

Hnath, an Orlando native, is known for his eclectic range in subject and style, and 2013′s “Red Speedo” is in part his nod to the work of David Mamet.

Gabriell Salgado plays a top-tier swimmer at a crossroads in “Red Speedo,” running through Dec. 30 at The Foundry in Wilton Manors.

Actors Gabriell Salgado and Chris Anthony Ferrer — both graduates of Miami’s New World School of the Arts — are joined by Casey Sacco and Jerry Seeger in this taut exploration of malleable values, shifting allegiances and flat-out lies. Hnath’s plotting is intricately twisting, full of surprises, so we’ll be stingy in sharing certain details.

But we will tell you this: When you enter the 53-seat theater space at The Foundry, the first thing you’ll notice is the sleek pool that set designer Melquisedel Dominguez built on the elevated stage. Because if you’re producing “Red Speedo,” a play about a swimmer on the cusp of career-transforming success, of course you need a real pool, no matter how small your theater may be.

Salgado, a Silver Palm Award recipient who appeared in this year’s world premiere of Michael McKeever’s “The Code” at The Foundry, stars as a rising swimming talent named Ray. His entire costume consists of a tiny red bathing suit, a swim cap and goggles, plus a massive sea serpent tattoo (designed by Avi Ram) encircling his body. “Red Speedo” isn’t a gay-themed play, but it’s clear that the poster featuring a swimming Salgado and his extremely low body fat percentage has helped drive the show’s brisk ticket sales.

With a growing body of professional work, the young actor stunned in his Carbonell Award-nominated professional debut as the Creature in Zoetic’s “Frankenstein.”

His challenge in “Red Speedo” is playing a childlike, manipulative, obsessive athlete who’s maybe a quarter as smart as Salgado himself. With the help of Meltzer, who has a genius for finding funny undercurrents in the smallest moments and gestures, Salgado nails pretty-boy Ray’s hubris and deficiencies.

For example: Ray’s lawyer brother Peter (played by Ferrer) lays into his longtime swim coach. Played by Seeger, the coach silently radiates intense disapproval as Peter argues against reporting the discovery of performance-enhancing drugs in the facility’s refrigerator — not on the eve of the Olympic qualifying trials, not as Ray may ink a life-changing spokesmodel deal with Speedo.

As the men escalate into a full-blown verbal conflict delivered in Mamet-like sentence fragments, Salgado’s seated Ray follows the back-and-forth with his large brown eyes, as if he were a spectator at Wimbledon. His rationale for the giant tattoo (he’d stand out more easily on TV) and his ideas for future nicknames (Ray Gun? Raydar?) show his intensifying focus on the glittering aftermath of Olympic success.

Ray is not, however, the only one with flaws in “Red Speedo.” All four characters have issues.

Peter, portrayed with an always-there undercurrent of desperation by the skillful Ferrer, sees his problematic brother’s success as his ticket out of a law firm job he hates, a fast pass into the lucrative world of sports agentry.

Seeger’s commanding coach at first appears to be an honorable man, one who knows every mental and physical facet of his star swimmer. But as it starts to look like Ray may jump ship, honor becomes situational.

The warmly appealing Sacco plays Ray’s sad and bitter ex Lydia, a sports-focused therapist he was ready to marry (and he still has a cockamamie matrimonial plan in mind). He has asked her to the training facility because he desperately needs something from her, and in the course of their conversation, we learn how much she’s lost because of Ray and Peter and her own actions.

Gabriell Salgado as an Olympic hopeful and Christopher Anthony Ferrer as his brother in “Red Speedo” at The Foundry.

As amusing as “Red Speedo” can be, Hnath’s play is ultimately unsettling, deeply so when the brothers finally come to blows. At first, Paul Homza’s fight choreography has Ray and Peter trading gut punches. But then the pool, silently waiting the whole time, gets weaponized. And you, like one of the actors, agonizingly hold your breath.

Adding to Dominguez’s tile-dominated set, Preston Bircher’s lighting reinforces the quiet shimmer of water, the stark glare of confrontation, the bloody potential of cheating. Panos Mitos mixes the startling blast of competition sounds with the music — some calming, some energizing — that Ray hears through his earbuds.

Killexams : The Foundry prevails in receiving special permit from West Stockbridge Planning Board

West Stockbridge — After five contentious public hearings, which were spread over two months and totaled of almost 14 hours, the Planning Board approved a special permit application by The Foundry performance arts facility at 2 Harris Street on Monday, December 5.

The December 5 hearing was just as contentious as the previous hearings, with Foundry owner Amy Brentano and Truc Nguyen, co-owner of the neighboring restaurant Truc’s Orient Express at 3 Harris Street and whose family owns their residence nearby at 1 Harris Street, all getting angry at times against both the audience of over 60 residents and at the board during their testimony during the hearing.

The issues surrounding the special permit eventually all came down to the sound emitted from The Foundry building, including its measurement and how to control it from getting too loud.

Just as she did at the previous hearing, Chairperson Dana Bixby suspended public comments at the beginning of the hearing and distributed to board members and the audience a draft of the approval for the permit. “I have been advised by Town Counsel that there needs to be a functional method of monitoring compliance [with sound bylaws],” Bixby said. “I’ve initiated a relationship and discussion with a sound consultant that I’ve worked with in the past, John Klett, who is a professional sound engineer and is engaged in the business of monitoring sound, musical events, and venues.”

As part of the conditions for the special permit, which were eventually approved by the board, a sound monitoring protocol will be set up for The Foundry to monitor outdoor sound measurements at its Harris Street property line, monitoring both A and C-weighted scales for the duration of a performance. As stated at a previous hearing, C-weighted sound is of particular concern to board members because the measurement factors in bass sound frequencies are much more than A-weighted sound measurements. “There is a feature of this [measurement] where short bursts of sound of 30 seconds or less would not constitute a zoning violation,” Bixby said. “If the cumulative aggregation of sound goes under a period of two minutes, it’s not a zoning violation.”

Bixby said that the conditions for sound in the special permit approval are set at a decibel level lower than what Brentano requested. “I think there had to be some allowances that there was going to potentially be some sound spikes that happen [during music performances],” Building Inspector Brian Duval said. “There has to be some reasonable way to keep them to a minimum and there’s got to be some allowance for some reasonable control.”

According to the draft handed out by Bixby, the music inside the building would be no louder than 60 decibels for A-weighted sound, 65 decibels for C-weighted sound, and The Foundry would be allowed to have up to four non-concseutive one-day outdoor events on the green of The Foundry property with a maximum of 70 decibels of A-weighted sound and 65 decibels of C-weighted sound.

Planning Board member Gunnar Gudmundson said that before the board approved the permit, members should arrange for a site visit at The Foundry. “I think that for us to arrive at a meaningful [sound] threshold, I think we need to go down there to do an experiment and have the sounds reproduced at various levels, and at least let the five of us [Planning Board members] listen to it,” Gudmundson said. “We have someone from The Foundry start to play the music. We’ll start turning it up and listening to it. I’m hoping that would help us to firm up to use a 60- or 65-decibel threshold. I think we need to experience the air, environment, and sound.”

Gudmundson said that he previously made a site visit of his own and measured the sound outside with two sound meters, which included the sound frequencies emitted from traffic in the area. “The sound level down there is greatly influenced by the truck traffic,” Gudmundson said. “The other thing that surprised me is that both times [when I measured], it sounds pretty quiet. And you know any of you that have walked your dogs down there at night or walk down there, you think it’s quiet. But when you look at the sound level, it’s really not that quiet.”

He said that the sound levels came down to background noise in the area. “It can be really loud, but you don’t notice it because it’s in the background,” he said. “But if it’s music or somebody giving a speech, it sounds much louder [than the background noise]. You could perceive it as being a [stronger] sound, but it’s really the same decibel level. It’s really just the nature of the sound.”

When called to speak at the hearing, Brentano asked the board if a decision on the special permit would be delayed due to a potential site visit as requested by Gudmundson. When Bixby told Brentano that any board decision may be delayed until a site visit was completed, Brentano became angry. “I have been closed for five weeks and I really can’t be closed any longer,” Brentano said. “We have made every effort to comply. We have offered to purchase the [sound measuring] equipment and we agreed to the first proposal that you gave us last week. One person in the town is complaining about the sound.”

During the five public hearings, other residents complained about the sound levels emitted from The Foundry. However, when someone in the audience told Brentano that what she said was not true, she in turn insisted that Truc was the only resident complaining about the sound levels. “For what we offer this town, it sure feels like an awful lot of restrictions,” Brentano said.

Several members of the audience proceeded to hiss at Brentano after her comment. “Wow, I can see that the town does not want The Foundry here,” she said. “We have bent over backward to comply and appease the problems that one abutter is having with us. It is difficult for me to understand as a business owner in this town at this point what is weighted [sound] and what is not, and what is the definition of a detriment to adjacent use. I don’t mean to sound snarky, but forgive me for having to go through five hearings, trying to present our evidence, but not being presented with any evidence of harm. What is the harm? What is detriment?”

“We don’t even know what ambient sound really is, and that’s the problem,” Chairman Bixby told Brentano regarding sound measurement.

“We don’t, but is that my problem?” Brentano said in response. “It’s the town’s problem. The town does not have any zoning bylaws for sound. And to put this all on one business because one person has gone after us, and after us, and after us, and after us, non-stop. Every time we’re told you have to get this permit, [and then] you have to get this permit, we’ve done it, we have complied.”

Brentano then became emotional and pounded on the speaker’s podium when she said, “And there was no evidence that was given that we didn’t comply and/or try to at least comply with the very strict restriction of 60 decibels. So I have been reasonable, and reasonable, and reasonable, and I’m done being reasonable.” Brentano then proceeded to threaten to withdraw her special permit application and close The Foundry.

After Brentano spoke, Chairperson Bixby proceeded to reopen the public hearing to hear from property abutters. Resident Marjorie Powell read into the record a letter from Maggie Merelle, owner of Rouge Restaurant which shares a property line with The Foundry. In her letter, which was obtained by The Berkshire Edge, Merelle wrote, “The Foundry has been a bad neighbor from the start, especially when it comes to using things that are not theirs.” 
In her letter, Merelle claims that The Foundry “[u]sed parking spaces that were not theirs, including leaving a food truck and other vehicles in a lot intended for use by Rouge and [its] employees, illegally disposed of their trash in Rouge’s dumpster on multiple and repeated occasions,” and that “members of The Foundry staff further used that same area to take smoke breaks, again in a parking lot that was not theirs.” Merelle wrote that The Foundry did not do anything about her concerns “and continued to behave in this manner without change … Furthermore, The Foundry proceeded to close the Harris Street extension as if it was theirs, and theirs alone to use as they saw fit.” Merelle explained, “They did not seek the town’s permission or bother to consult, or even inform any of the pre-existing abutters, including Truc. Truc, via her deeded rights from The Foundry’s predecessor-in-interest, had her business effectively closed as a result of this impermissible action.”

Merelle went on to write, “[I]n 2020 and 2021, The Foundry utilized this newly privatized space for their own enrichment and presented live outdoor music concerts on their Green. The noise from these was so loud inside the Rogue dining rooms that our patrons could not hear the restaurant’s music system. At times, it was so extreme that a patron asked whether there was a football game going on next door. This forced the closure of Rogue’s rear bistro room.”

Merelle added in her letter that “despite [their] complaints to The Foundry, it did nothing about this noise,” and that “while not the sole reason, The Foundry’s ongoing behavior, and rancorous posturing to continue without care or concern for its neighbors and the residents of West Stockbridge, was a contributing factor in my deciding to sell Rouge.”

In an interview after the hearing, Brentano denied Merelle’s claims and would not specifically address any of the allegations Merelle made in her letter.

The next person to speak, Nguyen’s attorney, Mitch Greenwald of Pittsfield, alleged that the board was holding email discussions about the special permit outside of the public hearings. In relation to this, on Tuesday, December 6, The Berkshire Edge submitted to the town a state public records request for any and all emails containing deliberations and communications between members of the Planning Board pertaining to The Foundry’s special permit application.

As he did at the previous hearings, Greenwald objected to the Planning Board granting The Foundry its special permit. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that the detriment has been demonstrated,” Greenwald said. “I know that the considerations [by the board] are intended to alleviate that detriment, but there can’t be any doubt that there is detriment. [When it comes to] the difficulty in understanding detriment, it’s very clear that there’s certainly no obligation in the bylaws or anywhere else that there be medically determinable harm. This is not an application for disability benefits, it’s not a tort case, and detriment is in the dictionary. It’s easily understood, and it’s up to this board to determine what detriment is. I don’t think there’s any doubt the detriment has been demonstrated.”

In response, Brentano’s attorney, Jeffrey Scrimo from Lenox, said, “[T]his is a commercial district and detriment has to be viewed through the lens of the district.” Scrimo explained, “There is no definite definition of what ‘detriment’ is, but it’s certainly something more than ‘I don’t like it’ … You as a board have taken the specific step to address the complaint of detriment. It will deal with it and that is what will address that detriment.”

Nguyen was the next to speak at the hearing and emphasized that she is dealing with issues of sound from The Foundry that are impacting her business and her residence. “There are two issues, it’s not just one abutter in terms of one entity,” Nguyen said. “It’s a business and a home. What I am having a very hard time accepting is specific levels of noise that are weighted, whatever way you want to weigh it, that is traveling into my home. My house, my bedroom is where I lay my head, and upstairs where my mom lays her head.”

Nguyen said that she took offense to one of the conditions that allowed for music from up to 10 p.m. from The Foundry. “When do we sleep? When do we get to have our rightful peace and quiet in our home?” Nguyen said. “It is unfortunate that a business moved in and has decided to do the type of programming that it has done without maybe not fully understanding the nature of the existing family and its business [next door] that has been there for 45 years. And a lot of people say ‘they shouldn’t have lived there. They shouldn’t have bought their house there, they should move to Long Pond Road and they should move into the mountains.’ Well, F.U. because you know what? We’re stupid immigrants. And that was where we got to live.”

Bixby then used her meeting gavel to stop Nguyen. “You know, I use the F word just as much as any [one of] us, but let’s try not to,” Bixby said.

Nguyen proceeded to apologize and continued speaking. “Don’t tell me what we should have done to prevent these three years of harm to us,” Nguyen said. “We moved here and it was an opportunity that we seized during the time. We did not harm anybody, we did not impose on anybody, we kept our heads down, we worked hard, and we contributed to this community tenfold in the 45 years that we’ve been here. Detriment for me is not a feeling. Well, yes, it is. I am feeling bass, amplified bass, and drums through my home, through my body. We don’t want to shut anybody down, but you all will fight just as hard to protect your family and your business that you have fought for and established. We came to this country with nothing, [only with] two bare hands. What we have we’re going to fight for, because you know why this country affords me the same rights as all of you. All of you. I have the right to peaceful enjoyment of my home, just as anybody else.”

Eventually, over the objections of Attorney Greenwald, Chairperson Bixby closed the hearing. “I’m not obliged to hear everybody speak here tonight, I provide standing to abutters and the applicants, so that is how I will run this meeting,” Bixby said to Greenwald. “We’re not going to hear from everybody under the sun here who wants to say something, including people from out of town.” Residents in the audience applauded Bixby’s comments.

The board eventually went on to approve the special permit for The Foundry, which includes conditions for sound, sound measuring protocols, and parking.

After the hearing, Brentano said that she is pleased that the board finally granted her special permit which will allow her to reopen. “I’m going to try to do my very best [to comply],” Brentano said. “A lot of people count on The Foundry as a safe space, and I feel an obligation to the members of the community that feel ownership. I don’t want to provide up the programming, and I don’t want anyone to dictate our programming, which is why we are fiercely independent. But at the same time, we’ve been willing to compromise the whole time.”

In regards to the allegations raised by Nguyen, Brentano said, “I am a good neighbor … I’ve done a lot, and I could list them, but it’s just not where I’m going,” Brentano said. “I’m not going to do tit for tat. We support her and we support her business. We really hope that she opens because it is the reason we moved where we moved was to support all of the businesses in the town and to bring all of those people who are always hungry [to the restaurant].”

When asked if The Foundry could peacefully co-exist with Nguyen, Brentano said, “That’s up to my neighbor.” She continued, “I just want to keep going. I’m probably going to regret saying this, but I’m sorry that this moved into identity politics. It has nothing to do with that. And you can quote me on this, I’m Jewish, and both of my children are queer. I have an invested interest in preserving a safe space for any community that feels underheard, underserved, and not heard.”

Brentano added that she hopes to reopen The Foundry next month.

When asked for her comments after the hearing, Nguyen would not comment, but her attorney Greenwald said that they were both disappointed that the Planning Board approved the special permit. When asked whether or not they would appeal the Planning Board’s decision, Greenwald said, “Anything is possible and we need to consider our options.”

Killexams : Callisto Protocol PS5 vs Xbox X comparted to last gen consoles

Callisto Protocol PS5 vs Xbox X

Callisto Protocol the recently launched survival horror action game developed by Striking Distance now available to play on PC, PlayStation and Xbox platforms that officially launched on December 2, 2022. Gameplay has been compared with last generation consoles providing a PS5 vs Xbox X comparison across all consoles thanks to the team at Digital Foundry. As of writing this article the game has received mixed reviews and takes the form of a narrative-driven, third-person survival horror game set 300 years in the future.

The Digital Foundry team explain more about their latest Callisto Protocol tech review.

“The Callisto Protocol is a properly current-gen game and yet… it’s available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles! To what extent have the visuals and performance been pared back to accommodate vintage 2013 consoles? And can PS4 Pro and Xbox One X horsepower help at all? PlayStation 5 and indeed Xbox Series S comparisons prove illuminating, as Oliver Mackenzie reveals.”

“When inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures, the prison is thrown into chaos. To survive, Jacob must battle his way to safety to escape Black Iron Prison, while uncovering the dark and disturbing secrets buried beneath the surface of Callisto. Using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat, Jacob will need to adapt his tactics to combat the rapidly evolving creatures while scavenging to unlock new weapons, gear, and abilities to outrun the growing threat and escape the horrors of Jupiter’s Dead Moon.”

“The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror from the mind of Glen Schofield. Blending atmosphere, tension, and brutality with terrifying moments of helplessness and humanity, The Callisto Protocol immerses players in a pulse-pounding story where unspeakable horrors lurk around every corner.”

Killexams : silicon foundry

Once upon a time, countries protected their domestic industries with tariffs on imports. This gave the home side a price advantage over companies operating overseas, but the practice has somewhat fallen out of fashion in the past few decades.

These days, governments are altogether more creative, using fancy export controls to protect their interests. To that end, the United States enacted an export restriction on high-powered computing devices. In response, Chinese designers are attempting to artificially slow their hardware to dodge these rules.

Killexams : People support The Foundry because it brings a youthful vibe to town

To the editor:

As the hearings drag on and on regarding the application for a special permit from The Foundry in West Stockbridge, we are confronted with more questions than answers.

The logical solution is apparent to all, because it has been adopted by cities and towns all over the country: Establish a reasonable standard regarding noise affecting residential abutters, and have a town-administered noise monitoring system. In the case of violations, provide fines, then order a temporary closure, and if violations continue, permanent closure.

So why can’t the reasonable people of West Stockbridge come to this reasonable solution? Why are all these nice people who fly Ukrainian flags and support pro-social politics so willing to throw one of their neighbors under a very loud bus? This is where it gets more mysterious, but I suggest there is a pretty good hypothetical answer: They like the noise.

The Foundry could, after all, just book quiet acts, like classical chamber music and poetry readings. And it would satisfy that long-sought desire of bringing visitors to the town.

But the people it would bring would be like the people who go to Tanglewood or South Mountain: sedate, older, well-behaved people, the kind who frequent Stockbridge and Lenox. They spend lots of money, but they don’t have a youthful vibe.

In the current series of hearings, we have been spared so far from the youthful vibe argument. In last year’s public hearings, we had a parade of young people extolling The Foundry as a place where they could hang out, let down their hair, and shake their booties to the music they prefer.

Last year, we also heard about how The Foundry attracts young people to the town, and we need places for them to congregate to get them to want to settle here. This time around, the youthful vibe argument has been relatively silent, except for a maudlin, rambling history of outdoor music in rockin’ West Stockbridge invited by the supposedly neutral Planning Board chair. But the argument may come back as the hearings continue into eternity.

I have had friends say this to me privately: People my age, somewhere between late-middle age and young elderly, say, “Yeah, the music is often banging on drums and screaming, but it’s kinda cool.”

It makes us not feel elderly to have a place to witness loud music and unrestrained energy. What many people are not saying publicly, but saying privately, I think, is that we don’t want a quiet Foundry. We like the noise because it makes us feel young.

So if we want a roadhouse, let’s make ourselves a roadhouse. The roadhouse is an old revered tradition in this country: a place out in the sticks where loud music and bad behavior is the norm. By the way, the reason they are called roadhouses is that they are usually out on a lonely highway where there is plenty of parking and no neighbors to disturb.

If we really want a roadhouse to capture that youthful vibe, let’s build one somewhere else, not try to cram one into the middle of a formerly peaceful village. Let’s put our heads together and identify a location, doing the due diligence before the fact for a change. Maybe somewhere out on Route 102 toward the State Line. The back of the solar farm?

How about a nine month lease agreement with Crane Lake Camp, which is vacant most of the year? How about cutting a deal with the largely silent Stockbridge Sportsmen’s Club to rent space for cacophonous Brooklyn-based bands? Or maybe renting space in one of those still-underutilized mills in Housatonic?

There is more to attracting young people to a town than a roadhouse.

While we are trying to find a place to put one, we could also spend some time thinking about providing economic opportunity, including available and affordable childcare and especially affordable housing to try to bring young people to West Stockbridge. Local stalwart Joe Roy, Jr. is heading up a task force right now trying to address some of these issues. Maybe we could help him out instead of demanding a roadhouse to magically make those youngsters want to live here?

If we want a youthful vibe, let’s figure out how to get one ethically and humanely. I know getting old is a hellish nightmare, but avoiding that nightmare by torturing our neighbors is not a decent way to proceed.

Killexams : The Digital Foundry Supporter Program - what we've achieved and where we're going next

It's been around 18 months now since we relaunched our Patreon as the Digital Foundry Supporter Program - and I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you what we've achieved in that time and where we aim to go next with the aid of your backing. For us at DF, it's been an interesting and successful experience based on a fundamental question: in a world packed with free reporting, can we actually sustain and grow what we do with help from the audience? And what if we invited these supporters to be closer to the team, to talk to us directly, and to offer a range of further benefits in the process?

Let's quickly talk about the basics of what we offer. The DF Supporter Program has three tiers: the $5/£5 supporter tier gives you access to our Discord - where the team regularly participate in discussions and answer questions - along with early access to DF Direct Weekly, the ability to pose questions for the show along with a weekly update from me that keeps backers fully up to speed with what projects each staff member is working on and what else is in the pipeline. High quality, ad-free video downloads? Yes, that's included too.

Speaking of downloads, we've upgraded our satellite website, digitalfoundry.net, to better service supporters, with easy access to our work. Everything we do is available for users to easily download in both h.264 and HEVC formats, with the format of the site changing according to your Patreon tier, allowing you to easily access exclusive material depending on the support level you've chosen.

Rich, John and Alex are on hand here to discuss how the Digital Foundry Supporter Program has changed and improved the channel - and to talk about where we want to go next.

Premium supporters at $10/£9.50 get all of the above plus early access to a lot of Digital Foundry content - tomorrow's videos today, if you will. In the past 18 months, we've delivered over 100 videos ahead of their public release.

On top of that, there's a wealth of bonus material, behind the scenes videos and other goodies we think have value - like, how about 4K 120fps capture of DLSS 3 in action? How about DLSS 3 generated frames vs 'native' frames? How about 20 minute Warzone 2.0 performance captures with up to four platforms running simultaneously? What about the time I bought an 8K to 4K scaler? There's a video on that too and it's embedded below. Premium Support is all of this and more - but it's the retro tier that has been transformative.

Our retro tier is higher-end at $15/£14.50 but it gives you all of the above - and it's crucial in enabling the work of John Linneman and his colleagues in producing DF Retro videos with high-end production values and intense research and testing. The most exact project - a 100-minute documentary on Final Fantasy 13 - is available to supporters now and in the past we've delivered videos that catalogue the PS3's 1080p catalogue, the early days of Gran Turismo on PS1 and PS2, the history of the Splatterhouse franchise, a deep dive into the Motorstorm trilogy and even a deep dive into Namco's Klonoa. The Supporter Program also includes Patreon exclusive shows and early access to DF Retro Play.

An example of a behind-the-scenes video from the Premium Support tier. Here, Rich talks about an interesting piece of kit from Amazon that uses hardware downscaling to convert an 8K 60Hz HDMI 2.1 feed into 4K 60Hz HDMI 2.0, opening the door to video-based 8K performance analysis.

The key point I want to make about the DF Supporter Program is how transformative and liberating it has become for us as creators. Digital Foundry is an independent business and has to support itself via YouTube revenue, very limited sponsorship opportunities (just four sponsored videos in 2022 vs around 20 videos created each month) - and supporter income.

The success of the Supporter Program has meant we've delivered on our promise to invest more resources in DF Retro and it's also made us less reliant on highly volatile YouTube income. It's also allowed us to bring in the brilliant Oliver Mackenzie as a freelancer, meaning the rest of the staff can spend more time on projects while allowing us to have a much better work/life balance - something that has been challenging for us in the past.

Today, I'm asking you to consider the DF Supporter Program again and here's why: because we want to grow, we want to tackle new challenges and we want to do better. That starts with PC gaming. I think we're in a golden age of excellent PC hardware coverage but what's clear is that the same level of excellence does not apply to critiques of the genuine PC gaming experience - who else has tackled the stuttering nightmare that PC gaming is becoming in a great many releases? Who else is providing feedback to game developers to make their settings and configuration options better? We're also really proud of our drive for delivering optimised PC settings, the best bang for the buck in terms of visual quality vs performance in the latest PC titles. That often includes console-equivalent testing for PC ports, which gives us a valuable insight into how the developers themselves have settled on their own settings balance for resource-contrained hardware.

The Retro tier on the DF Supporter Program is essential in allowing us to invest time and resources into making our major DF Retro episodes possible. It's also about the community, our team and their love for retro gaming - as you can see here in our regular 'Pickups' show, exclusive to Retro tier supporters.

Historically, we've suggested improvements and changes to game makers behind the scenes to make console games better and that's what we're doing with PC too - but ultimately, the more resources we have, the better equipped we are to expand our PC coverage, where we only really have one full-time person on the team covering this huge topic. Other targets for DF going forward? We improved our proprietary analysis tools in 2020 but the fundamentals are still based on work we did way back in 2008. As 120Hz and VRR displays become more crucial to the console gaming experience, perhaps it's time for another revamp.

While we'd love your support, I'd also like to stress that everyone benefits from this endeavour, whether you're backing us or not. DF Retro major episodes, DF Retro EX, DF Retro Let's Plays - supporters get early access but all major content eventually reaches the channel and is available to everyone.

Extra resources have allowed us to spend more time on content, meaning better quality - so that's a net win for everyone too. Bringing Oliver onboard has made our lives so much easier in many ways too, and that's all down to the DF Supporter Program. So thanks so much if you've contributed in any way and if you'd like to join us, please head over to our Patreon page.
