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

Funny ass shit

Looks like something right out of The Boondocks. Great job!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Definitely Boondocks inspired! Animation is fluid, concepts are down, the whole package is here! Love this man... it reflects what I do as a black animator even more.

Hilarious and sad

That was funny as hell. Although I'm white (gasp!), I've studied African-American history and literature and a few of the professors I hung out with were former members of the NAACP. They and I know exactly what you mean. That aside, I have to say again, that was funny as hell.

And the quality of animation and voices were damn good. I can tell you worked your ass of for the A. If not, then you're just talented.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
