Abstract: Creativity is a term that justifies the manifestation of creating and developing something that triggers thought, ability and sense of individualism. The act of creation is one that transcends an inner message within the creative persona, in which one can repel against the traditional foundations that oppress this act of freedom. This research investigates different creative impulses as those of Dr.Seuss, Ai WeiWei, Virginia Woolf, Khalil Gibran in which creative freedom stands as an important element within the creator and the condition she/he faces within. With this different experimental animation techniques have been investigated and explored in order to challenge the ‘hero’s journey’ (Campbell, Cousineau and Brown, 1990) and the systematic manner of narrating a story. Looking within Destino (Monfrey,2003), The Guardian (Novelli,2015), Coda (Hoegg, 2015), Chaos is a Dancer (Levasseur, 2013), these elements stood as an important counterpoint that allowed for the formation of the final animation to emerge. This developing study has investigated different animation techniques such as that of rotoscope, hand drawn traditional animation together with three-dimensional animation in attempt to blend different approaches within the script narrative. Through diverse methodological approaches of in depth interview and focus group, a data analysis has been collected and further investigated. This paved way to the formation of this animation project, which narrates the journey upon understanding the inner purpose of creativity. Where significant importance was given to the narrative and symbols. This has been done through the intertextualization of a myth ‘How Saynday Got the Sun’ (Wallace and Boyd, 1985) where the inner creative journey has been discovered and explored within the final animation.
