Claude Cloutier is a Quebec film animator and illustrator who has to date made seven short films with the National Film Board of Canada. Cloutier began his animation career with the 1988 short The Persistent Peddler (Le colporteur), which was in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cloutier has said that in his youth, it had been his dream to become an animated filmmaker and that when he began working as an illustrator, he did so with the hope of being able to transition into animation. He worked most notably as an illustrator with the now-defunct Quebec satirical magazine Croc, with two comic book-style series La légende des Jean-Guy and Gilles la Jungle contre Méchant-Man. His hoped-for entry into animation came when an NFB producer asked him if he wished to adapt La légende des Jean-Guy into an animated short, which resulted in The Persistent Peddler.
