"He has the character of force which is the stamp of genius, that variety which proclaims the fire of imagination, and that charm which proves an assured taste" - from Swiss philosophe & educator Auguste Tissot from the book 'MOZART: A LIFE' - Maynard Solomon
"Your works are very sophisticated" - quote from another writer who was referencing James D. Watkins and this was in participation in Orlando's Playwrights Roundtable conference/meeting.
Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Jerry Sandusky, Larry Nassar, David Copperfield, Steve Wynn, Josh Whedon, Bryan Singer, Peter Martins, James Levine, Roman Polanski, etc.
WHO'S MORE DANGEROUS?
Who's more dangerous...HARVEY WEINSTEIN, BRYAN SINGER, BILL COSBY, STEVE WYNN, JERRY SANDUSK or LARRY NASSAR, -OR- JAMES D. WATKINS? The individuals posted above are either accused sexual harassers or deviants, OR, they and others have been found guilty of unbecoming sexual behavior and acts. HYPOCRISY & HOLLYWOOD go hand-in-hand. Hypocrisy also extends far beyond Hollywood and the same earthly rules apply. Having money, fame and seemingly clout will get you anywhere and anyone.
I am JAMES D. WATKINS and I have never touched anyone unwarrantedly; I have never raped anyone; I have never offered opportunities in exchange for something else; I have never robbed or cheated any talent on what was theirs; I HAVE been ripped-off by mediocre talent who couldn't read and understand contracts. I DO pay all talent that's involved in my projects. I DO relentlessly promote my works and if need be, I can become quite aggressive and arrogant about it. I DO and WILL go after those who try to steal from myself and I WILL go after those who lie on myself.
For an example; take ORLANDO PLAYWRIGHTS ROUNDTABLE, CHARLES DENT, BACKSTAGE, this/these individuals/organizations seem to think I, JAMES D. WATKINS am a dangerous individual like the ones above and this is where their FEARS have made them into FOOLS. A certain underwhelming actor tried to steal my production money and like a pitbull I became relentless in retrieving what was mine and in turn I was accused of harassing and stalking. That false accusation came to LIGHTand TRUTH when I presented the TRUTH and contracts and of course I was exonerated. But, there are narrow-minded fools who still believe I'm some crazed psychopath, even though I can create circles around them all.
This is where HYPOCRISY comes in again: I'm pretty sure ORLANDO PLAYWRIGHTS ROUNDTABLE, CHARLES DENT & BACKSTAGE would happily accept casting calls from either HARVEY WEINSTEIN, KEVIN SPACEY or BRYAN SINGER and even receive guest lectures from these same people.
In turn these same organizations or individuals would then feed the underwhelming and mediocre masses of talent what the stewards of HOLLYWOOD has to say or teach them about the business. How HYPOCRITICAL of them all.
The majority of supposedly talent have horrible work-ethics and some feel entitled to roles or parts. Above all, those same talents usually hate seeing or being marketed to from an entity that artistically outweighs them and that entity is I, JAMES D. WATKINS. I'm a very nice guy, but sometimes you have to be like an ASSHOLE in order to get things done with cerain entitled talents(much like STEVE JOBS did). These same underwhelming talent will go and complain to whoever listens to them that I am harassing them with creative works. Even though they are in the business of promotion and marketing, they hate receiving notices of other works. HOW IRONIC.
