Captain Ig'nant

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

As a Native-American, I hate everyone, so I can look past anything rasist...I've never seen the point i getting upset about it anyways...It's up to you to lookpast it, and realize that its just words...so, who gives a shit? Good Job laughing at the ig'nant picture that time and society has placed on ya..lol...

Heh I lol'd

It was funny, reminds me of the Read a Book rap song that possesses the same basic message. It was passed off by many as racist and portraying said community in a terrible manner. Unfortunately they missed the point. I'm here to say that I didn't miss the point than or now.
