Be Careful About the Advice You Give, You Never Know Who’s Listening
Committed to his DJ at a local Atlanta radio station, Tony Sinclair (Cisco Reyes) strives to build on his career in director Damon Jamel’s Last Night A DJ Saved My Life.
Opening the phone lines to his audience for a call-in, Tony is asked for relationship advice for a female caller. His advice to Robin (Jasmine Burke), “If it’s not working, then leave.” When you are a DJ you never know who’s listening and to his surprise his girlfriend Christine calls in and breaks up with him in the most humiliating way possible.
People often stay in relationships longer than they should. It shows the importance of having your partner’s support your aspirations and goals. Robin is not the only one who takes this advice to heart. A fantastic job taking the title of a song and creating a story line that is true to form to the title. The fame and success he craves as a DJ in Atlanta.
The challenges relationships face when not in agreement with goals and aspirations. Frustration of supporting a boyfriend financially while he pursues his career as a DJ. A career that he is struggling and determined to achieve.
Damon does a fantastic job taking the title of the song and a story line that is true to its inspirational title, because Tony truly does save Robin’s life.
Filmed on location in the Hollywood of the South, Atlanta, GA and add in all the musical talent in the region, you get to listen to some great music. An enjoyable film with great music.
