Brief Synopsis:
Removal of unnecessary, excessive action and cgi to focus more on Bilbo & company's relationships and adventure.
After trying to watch various fanedits of the Hobbit trilogy, I decided to make an edit combining all of my favorite ideas from others along with several of my own.

Editing Details:
Eliminating the white orc was my main goal, as well as various attempts at humor that felt out of place for me. I also removed most of the flashbacks as they usually involved the white orc, and all the cutting away felt like interruptions to the main journey, as well as involving rather poor cgi.
