Abstract This research is a practice-based research and also an art-based research. The major project of this study is the open screenplay of The Hero's Journey, and its animated section (section 1) that uses found works and multiple production techniques. Based on this production practice, this research investigates how installation art can inspire animation in screenplay writing and visual design; it explores how the formulaic narrative structure of the post-apocalypse genre can be disrupted to create an open story; and it also explores to what extent found works can be used in animation.

A methodological model for the practice-based research in the field of animation has been built to frame this research and to organize the multiple disciplines in relation to this research. This study transfers thoughts and techniques from installation art to animation, and the outcome benefits other independent animators and screenplay writers who are without the experience of installation art creative practice.
