5/22/11-NEW ENDING ADDED

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

Straight from the boondocks

You should definitely write for the show if you can come up with stuff like this. I'm not one of those idiots who is going to say you're stealing, just because you said nyukka doesn't mean the boondocks invented it.

Seriously, I hope you get a job with them.



Son talk about Satire

I'm black and I was laughing the whole time while these stereotypes plague the community some of them are true. My highschool was just...ugh. I got made fun of because I talked "white" aka spoke proper english. I'm sitting thinking to myself "so it's a bad thing to speak your own language as best you can? Well guess I'll be taking your job then". All that a side I was laughing the whole time reminds of a boondocks episode which basically does the same thing as you.
