"He is a man who has within him the devil of self-destruction that lives in every genius......it is not self-doubt, it is cosmic doubt. 'What am I going to do - I am the best, I know that, now what do I do with it?' "
- from director FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT and he's talking about ORSON WELLES.

THE BIG PICTURE
Even in the age, time or epoch of human endeavorments, there will always be those who don't think outside the box. Those who can't see theBIG PICTURE. I am James D. Watkins. I am very Artistically Intense(A.I.) and can scare some people. Or, so it seems. I guess exact intensity can frighten most individuals and that's too bad, because I have never beat-up, battered, attack, raped or physically assaulted anyone, and yet there are some narrow-minded individuals who would act like I did. I was even falsely arrestedbecause a 'model' made false claims that I was going to kill her and you want to know where that came from? She had a copy of my music-video script called 'SMOOTH CRIMINAL' that starredPLAYBOY PLAYMATE 2006Cassandra Lynn and it was about a magical thief that stalks and kills a PLAYBOY PLAYMATE. When that 'model' notified the authorities on my plans (which was really my shooting script), I was arrested and once the authorities found out the truth I was immediately released and all (FALSE) charges were dropped. But yet, there are some narrow-minded 'talents' that just love to use my arrest and mugshot as proof that I, James D. Watkins, am a crazed, harmful man. That is because most of the 'talents' and individuals can't and will never see theBIG PICTURE.I can feature an erotica-type production or a nude model and all the narrow-minded masses will see is that and make assumptions about mywork, but they don't seeall the varied things that I can do. Again, these individuals don't or refuse to see theBIG PICTURE. Maybe they can't see theBIG PICTURE. Maybe their narrow-mindness has altered their vision into a tunnel-vision and therefore they have become mentally impaired and that could explain why most of these 'talents' hate receiving or seeingany other creative work besides their own. Vision is the art of seeing the invisible and that's what a lot of people and certain 'talent' lack or don't have - VISION. I thank God I have themental and creative capacity to have that VISION and therefore that allows myself to see theBIG PICTURE.
