Film production involves numerous imaginative tasks. These tasks are closely associated to seeing the film-that-is-to-come through what is currently completed and what can be creatively added. The present study was aimed at examining the effects of both creative personality and psychological variables on the imagination of film majors. The mediator effects of "inspiration through action" and "intrinsic motivation" were also tested. A survey (N?=?865) was administered at eight universities across different regions of Taiwan. The results of this study verified factor structures of both imaginative capabilities and psychological influences. The hypothesis of the study--that the variables of both "inspiration through action" and "intrinsic motivation" function mediator roles on imagination-- as partially supported. The structural model also showed that creative personality and psychological variables had both direct and indirect effects on imagination. Limitations of the study were acknowledged, and future inquiries were discussed.
