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


love it

I love the edgy humor like I love when my neighbor soups up her hedges. (Is it soup?) well what I mean to say is when something is spiffed out to be a quality above the rest, I appreciate that, and that s what my neighbor does.

I love this sort of satire it's simply ingenious, make MORE

Everyone around us is captain ignant

you must watch football and enjoy it, you must drink beer with the guys, you must spend your money... You must get a tattoo, you must always be horny...

and most important... You must always cheer but act you are deeply unhappy at the same times...

Whoa, it takes much more effort to be a useless trainspotter than to become the king of Thailand.
