Synopsis:

A strange man named Gordon joins his mother and an accountant in a scheme to take the fortunes of the creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky family known as the Addamses. When it is discovered that Gordon has a faint resemblance of the patriarch's long lost brother, Uncle Fester, he impersonates him in a quest to steal the family fortune. But as he spends his time with the family, he begins to find that he shares more in common with this abnormal family than he expected.


Intentions:

The main reason was out of curiosity. I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if the two movies were combined into one. The combination worked better when it was focused on Uncle Fester, so I decided to let Uncle Fester be the central focus for the edit.

Additional Notes:

The basic strategy I used for this edit was to place all the focus on Uncle Fester. I removed a lot of things from the original films for this reason. Otherwise, I took advice from Aristotle's Poetics, Walter Murch's In the Blink of an Eye, and whatever other editing advice I could find. I also watched a lot of Cullen Kelly's YouTube videos in preparation for the color grade.
