This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Use Composition @@ MapThread[RotationTransform, {{Pi/4, Pi/4, Pi/4}, {{0, 0, 1}, {1, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1}}}] instead. – J. M. May 4 '13 at 1:53
@J. M. ok, I found this is more simpler in my original code'style. Inner[RotationTransform,{Pi/4,Pi/4,Pi/4},Hold/@{{0,0,1},{1,0,0},{0,0,1}},Composi‌​tion]//Release – HyperGroups May 4 '13 at 2:04
ReleaseHold[] is what the cool kids use nowadays. – J. M. May 4 '13 at 2:07

you can just add Unevaluated to prevent Inner from seeing inside:

Inner[RotationTransform, {Pi/4, Pi/4, Pi/4}, 
 Unevaluated /@ {{0, 0, 1}, {1, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1}}, Composition]
