What’s a 30 year old guy to do when his wife stays home sick and ruins his trick or treating plans? Featuring a star-studded cast that include Joel David Moore (HATCHET, DODGEBALL, AVATAR), Corri English (BEDFORD DIARIES, UNREST, HOLLISTON), and Zachary Levi (SHAZAM, CHUCK, TANGLED, THOR 2), our 9th annual ArieScope Halloween short film remains one of the most fan-beloved of all of our Halloween shorts.
THE 2019 RE-MASTER: THE TIFFANY PROBLEM was shot in 2007 before the advent of consumer grade high-definition video and the original version was extremely low resolution. However, in 2019 specific scenes from THE TIFFANY PROBLEM were fixed up as much as they possibly could be in order to be included in our feature-length documentary « FOR THE LOVE OF HALLOWEEN: Celebrating 20 Years of ArieScope Halloween Shorts » that was released in conjunction with our 20th annual Halloween short film. Fans with a keen eye for detail immediately noticed the quality difference between the clips of THE TIFFANY PROBLEM used in the documentary and the actual short that they’ve watched countless times over the years… and thus began a year of fan requests for a re-mastered version.
So… you asked and we delivered! Presented here is the complete 2019 re-master of THE TIFFANY PROBLEM which was first shown in its entirety during Adam Green’s « Coronapocalypse Live Stream Series » in April 2020. Given that the original footage was not only shot in extremely low resolution, standard definition video but also lost forever when the ArieScope studio was flooded in February 2017… unfortunately the quality of the image could only be improved so much. That being said, the sound has been cleaned up and re-mixed, the credits look infinitely better, and the picture and color are definitely a step up from the original ultra low-fi 2007 version which will remain hosted on the ArieScope YouTube channel. We hope that you enjoy it… and that you never stop trick or treating!
