Running Time


The fifth episode of a glitchy graphic novel: Ed goes in the woods to urinate and makes the encounter of a Belgian extra-terrestrial driven by mysterious intentions…

Ball Ed’s Adventures is a graphic novel inspired by André Breton and Philippe Soupault’s automatic writing process. The illustrations have been produced with a modified low-fi analogue video sketch pad from the early 1990’s. Computer is only used to encode and edit. No compositing, no effects. Many Sketch pads were damaged, and fixed during the making.

Bio: Born in Normandy, France in 1972, Marc Bascougnano (Running time) was rapidly attracted by arts and especially drawing. He studied art in high school and later animation at CFT Gobelins visual School in Paris where he graduated in 1994.

He started working in UK on several animated feature films such as “Balto” (Universal) and later on the early films of Dreamworks SKG (“Prince of Egypt”. “Road To El Dorado”) in Los Angeles.

He came back home in 2000 and worked as visual development artist and character designer on various animated shows.

By 2004 he started working on video editing on personal side projects, encoding and archiving super8 films and VHS tapes, progressively heading towards conceptual and experimental video works. RT is involved in Vjing and live audio/video performances often abstract and glitch oriented. Obsessed by the error aesthetics and considering glitch art as a witness role, he tends to let the machine do the talking as the device becomes the artist and the artist the medium.
