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 4 / 5 stars


No white hoes, or any sexual stereotypes got in here? How could you miss that?

"My black friend, he talks like a white guy! So he's not really black! it's sickening! " So funny!

First of all, the blow horn threw me off becuase i kept on thinking about Carnival...
Everything is pretty much perfect with this flash (except the end becuase i dont know who shot him)
your voice talent is excellent, your animation is top noch and you have a smooth consistant flow of story.
Keep it up. :)

whats with the watermelon?
You 'yanks' still care about someones race? Like i understand about someone being a Muslim or something considering what happed ~10years ago. But seriously?!

Chakra-X responds:

Haha yeah unfortunately it's still an issue here....Nothing like lynchings and segregated schools, but there is still a low quality view of the black race as a whole in America from both inside and outside the black community.
