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


There's some high-level animation here, man. As far as craft goes, you've improved leaps and bounds, and it's great.

As for the content, I don't even need to tell you how funny. (Not that I haven't already on many occasions haha)

Keep up the excellent work. also, shout outs to JERK.

Excellen job!

I don't know if your university gave you an A for this but you got an A from me. When they first started talking I instantly thought BOONDOCKS! LOL! Really liked how you used the characters in 3d backgrounds. Also your drawings have improved a lot I see! Nice animation! You Ignant for this!

Is this racist?

I don't know I'm not black... I enjoyed the art and animation though voice acting could use a bit of work. Lots of words were hard to understand... That's all.
