The paper examines five animated shorts by different artists which explore autobiographical themes. The main areas under analysis are the themes themselves, narrative structures, visualisation and the motivation for each artist in making their film. A particular concern is whether therapeutic benefit has resulted for the artist both in terms of the animation production process and in the potential of the films to communicate a personal truth.
