Claude Cloutier



Born in Montréal, Claude Cloutier joined the NFB in 1986 and completed his first short film, The Persistent Peddler, inspired by his comic strip La légende des Jean-Guy. This project was followed by OVERDOSE, produced as part of the Rights from the Heart series. Between 1990 and 1998, Claude also created animated sequences for several films. In 1999 and 2000, he made five animated shorts for the Science, Please! series: WHEEL MEETS FRICTION, SLIPPERY ICE!, THE FORCE OF WATER, and INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE. Also in 2000, he completed the short film FROM THE BIG BANG TO TUESDAY MORNING; an ironic take on evolution and the origins of human beings. A testament to his astonishing technical skill, this short film was a sign of great things to come. In 2015 his short film CARFACE screened at the Annecy International Animation FF.
