THIS IS A SATIRE. Captain Ig'nant represents the unfortunate hold of negative stereotypes placed upon the black community. I am black, most of the voices are black, and if you pass this off as "racist" and do attempt to understand the message, you are not doing any favor for the issues. This is meant to make people laugh yes but also point out the flaws in the current image of black America.

This is my animation for my junior thesis at the University of the Arts. And yes I got an 'A', haha, thank you Elliot Cowan.

Whenever a black person even THINKS about acting rationally, or dares to rise above stereotypes, your friendly hood-ass Captain Ignant is there to save the day! From African Americans getting shot for ridiculous reasons, to suburbanite black kids trying to be hood, Captain Ignant is there to keep black people the way they were "supposed" to be: IG'NANT!

Animated in Toon Boom Animate 2
Composited/Special Effects in Adobe After Effects CS5
Most voices recorded with Blue Yeti Microphone



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Racist? More like Hilar-acist!

There were so many hilarious things in this video. The watermelon logo, the catfish, his ringtone, and the dramatic white guy were some of my favorites. My only problem is that there are a few parts I can't understand even after watching it 4 times. Also, that kid's voice at the end freaks me out.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

love it

I love the edgy humor like I love when my neighbor soups up her hedges. (Is it soup?) well what I mean to say is when something is spiffed out to be a quality above the rest, I appreciate that, and that s what my neighbor does.
