This producer has no reason to help you other than they need a tax write off. If you are lucky enough to find your sugar baby, don’t take advantage of it because you should not burn that bridge. There will come a project that you are desperate to do. That is when you need The Silent One most.
The Silent One has been down the fame road once or twice and knows that it’s paved with good intentions. They can get flustered when not told the truth but a quick explanation resolves any problems even if the Momager has bent their ear. They realize truth lies in the middle.
They are trusting to a point and once you’ve lost that confidence, you’ll never get it back. They will never stab you in the back but they’ll make sure you never eat lunch in this town again.
