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

Laugh Out Loud Funny

I'm black too and I found this hilarious... I completely understand the message too.

Only complaint... I wish it was longer.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I hope you realize

This could be portal GOLD if you turn it into a series. I was worried since it was a school project it wouldn't be "inappropriate" but obviously it's not censored, I do wish it was longer though and got even more... "Racist". This would be a 15 if it was based just off of the animations, so 8 for the full product.
