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


She got pregant....

HELL YEAH !!!!!!


and chicken waffels

Almost but not quite!

I laughed really hard, but still: some of the jokes were half formed and could have been taken further.

Overall, I loved it. You should send this to Aaron Mcgruder. Totally boondocks style.

The A is deserved

I don't live in the States but this is an issue everywhere and for all races. I love how you used the profanity to full effect, it's over the top but it works because of the message your implying.

The animation was smooth, music was perfect for style and the voice acting was superb. The comedy was spot on, especially the bit with the white guy and his friend. Overall a very impressive piece of animation.

Thanks! I was concerned if only Americans would get the message, but that's awesome that people in other countries can respond to it like that.

Its funny, because its racist.

Animation is alright. Music is good, but not used in the best way possible. Voice acting is probably the best part of this piece. Thumbs up
