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

Perfect,

Reminds me of the satire constantly displayed in the boondocks, and somehow the voices do remind me of the boondocks, at least Captain Ignant's voice, reminds me of Ed Wuncler the III (the rich white man's grandson). Good point on this subject.

Sad, but true

The animation was great, the art work was great, and I like your description points out how society views us. It's that people view us in this when, especially when we try not to be a stereotype and whats worse is when other black people say that your not black because your not acting like a stereotype. The especially makes us look bad, this includes the music industry, which is not run by blacks but by greedy, first generation mind set, white people, that supposedly embrace the Hebrew customs, in short Jews. But they are not real Jews but put on a act like they are, since real Jews would not condone any of their actions. I have friends that are Jews and they are disgusted by the ones in charge of the media and banks. And I am half black and yet I always deal with ignorant black people that tell me that I am not really black when I try to rise above stereotypes and make something out of my life outside of "basket ball, rapping and drug dealing", and I'm also an art student. Good Work by the way lol
