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

Top-notch ghetto parody!

What makes this even funnier is that the man who made this happens to be black. Chakra-X, it's been years since NG has had a ghetto parody, and a fucking hilarious one at that! What's next, a satire of Al Sharpton?

In terms of visuals, you did a great job at drawing and animating this; especially considering that the art style is much harder to animate than lets say, Woody Woodpecker. And the character expressions are excellent! It shows that you've come a long way since Darfur Satire Shorts (which I have in my favorite flash), and your Sonic the Hedgehog flash (that I haven't seen). When it comes to the music, clever use of Audio Portal rap/hip hop music, which almost always gets ignored aside from Shadowfox2. In addition, the voicework is excellent in every degree, but it could have used subtitles. Last, but not least, the content. As I said before, It's been years since there has been a ghetto flash, and this was comedy gold. The pacing and direction helped make every single stereotype joke, from racial slurs to teen pregnancy, into the laugh riot that it is.

What's Good:
-Really funny
-Great art and animation
-Fresh and original
-Excellent voice acting
-Magnificent music selection

What's bad:
-Could have used subtitles

Overall: Here's a ten from me, and maybe you ought to consider teaming up with JazLyte sometime.

the animation is amazing,the topic as well,very good voice acting,5/5 10/10

as a comment to sacros below,it's good for you that you're fair enough to give it the rating it deserves,but you failed to get the point.the purpose of this flash is to fight against the black people stereotypes and all the people and situations that enforce's absolutely not racist and the dude that made it is propably black himself.check out his account and time be more carefull

HILARIOUS! I like your artwork, and I think the content was just down right funny. I think it could have been offensive to some people, but really, I think we all should just laugh about it. I give you a 10 for the courage to do it, and 5 for the good work. :)

And I agree with Master-Samus about the voice acting. It is a little difficult to understand what they're saying, but for the most part, I understood it. I think it was just the microphone clarity.
