My First Attempt At Revolutionizing Entertainment: My Reality-Documentary “Phil Drolet’s Good Day Off”

2 weeks ago I had never even thought of making a movie. And somehow, here I sit, getting ready to present my first movie to you. How quickly things can change.

I tried to create something that is the opposite from the mindless & negative content shown on mainstream TV. a Reality-Documentary that is entertaining & inspirational, and that also teaches cool+useful stuff.

It is the culmination of a 14 month journey that lead me from being unemployed in Montreal, living on my mom’s couch, to creating my dream job and living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Perth, Australia.

But there is also one important reason why I made this film, and why it means so much to me.

***

Ladies & gentlemen, without further ado, I humbly present you my first piece of feel good cinematographic art, Phil Drolet’s Good Day Off.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the show! It’s time to feel good. :)

***

I recommend a few amazing products in there, not to make money but to share these tools with you because I know they’ll change your life. They’ve absolutely helped me to create my dream life, and they’ve helped everyone I know in Perth who’ve started using them.

I really encourage you to take action and pick them up right now. Investing in yourself is the best investment you can ever make.

Philosopher’s Notes is the single best way I’ve found to acquire amazing wisdom when living a busy life. They 25 minute summaries of the greatest books ever written, from Buddha to Aristotle, all the way to Tony Robbins & Dan Millman.  I’ve just finished my 100th note and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.  I can’t recommend enough that you get your and pop ‘em on your iPod.

Ready to start learning with no effort? Download your Philosopher’s Notes right now.

Holosync is absolutely revolutionary. It allows a beginner meditator to meditate like a Zen Buddhist Monk (and get amazing benefits) with no practice. Absolutely wonderful tool, it’s helped me a lot to increase my focus, creativity, and stay more relaxed, and I sleep better. If you’ve been thinking about starting meditation, this is the one tool you need. 

Getting the full benefits of meditation has never been easier. Download Holosync to start meditating like a pro.

(In the Lab- Already working on the next project!)

All right! Thanks a lot for watching, and please leave me your feedback. This is my first experience as a filmmaker, and I’m committed to becoming as good as I can be. And it’s with your  comments, suggestions and ideas that I will be able to take my skills up to the next level.

So don’t be shy, let me know your thoughts! :)

Cheers!
Phil

  • CONGRATS DUDE!!!!

    The day has come, your MOVIE IS OUT!!!!! I'm going to paddle out into these GNARLY Hurricane Waves… THEN, I will come home, chill out and WATCH THIS PIECE!

    Looking forward to it buddy!

    Surfs up,

  • Nicely done!! Really enjoyed the movie, i learned some new very useful stuff! Love learning new things, i think you should never go through a day without learning something new, so this was great :)

    Also very motivating and inspiring!

    Dude..Perth is amaziiin', really beautiful town! You just cannot feel bad when you're in a such great environment hehe. Loved the manna store and all that super food! I'm a junkie for healthy food =)

    Great taste in music man btw.

    Looking forward to new videos, and I would love it if you could show in one video what are your favorite fruits/vegetables combinations for smoothies. I read your The best breakfast in the world article and it's great, just wanted to know what are your favorite combinations.

    Will check the Philosopher's notes and holosync, heard about it, but never read about it. I will now.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Hey Ivor!

      Thanks so much for your awesome feedback to my movie.

      I will most certainly be making a Smoothie video soon, been thinking about it for the last few weeks actually!

      Reading about it in an article is great but there's nothing like seeing it in action.

      I will be posting my first cooking video in the next few days, it's called "The 4 Minute Healthy Meal", you'll dig it.

      Definitely check out PN & Holosync, that shit rocks. If you like learning, this stuff is like legal learning steroids :)

      Keep it up!

      Cheers,

      Phil

  • Great work Phil. Loved the sound track. Going to the bar at 8 am. I gotta try that out..no not order green tea..lol…

    • Thanks buddy! I had so much fun creating the soundtrack.. I've always dreamed of becoming a DJ and this was the first time I got to express myself with music (and stir up certain specific emotions thanks to it), it was awesome… starting to think I might need to learn how to produce a few beats myself ;)

  • NOW I WATCHED IT!!!!

    Dude, I REALLY loved the enthusiasm through out, and GREAT work in editing. Now that I edit my podcast and videos I can tell the work that goes into some of the things. I mean, there was one point where you had a little song play out for 3 seconds (w/ the chicks) THAT took you MINUTES to do, but we heard it for a SEC. Shit like that MAKES this great!

    Keep it up man, looking forward to more, and very proud of the path your building ahead!

    Surfs up,

    p.s. Speaking of "Surfs up"… Get me on those waves at 5:03

    Hahahh and The hippie Sack! FANTABULOUS!

    • THANKS BRO! Man I think you're like the one person who writes messages even more enthusiastic than mine hahaha.. LOVE IT!!

      Yeah dude editing is awesome, but damn sometimes getting finicky can take a while. But I really believe in donig things well and and I think it's worth extra effort/time to really create something that I can watch afterwards and think.. "fuck yeah I made that!!" :)

  • Great job Phil – Keep on your mission! – live it up and share it round :)

    Catherine

    • Thanks Catherine, I wouldn't be where I am today without seeing you & Willow do your thing first hand! :)

  • "Everyday I see my dream" The low tone of voice cracks me up, but great job tying into lyrics….I dive into my ocean……and he's got a lot of friend request….pretty creative. Very tempted to go to Perth for kitesurfing now. Town looks lovely.

    • Thanks Naomi! I had sooo much fun messing around with the music and making it fit. After all these years of dreaming of becoming a DJ I finally got the chance to use music to express myself and will DEFINITELY be doing that more in the future.

      Perth is basically the world capital for Kitesurfing, you'd love it! Just gotta make it out there (Perth is also the most isolated big city in the world!)

  • I'm very happy I saw this video!

    Cheers for the inspiring film.

    It's great to see someone living their dream from across the globe!

    - Erick

    • Thanks man! Really appreciate it.

      Dream big, go for it, put in the work, and before long amazing things start happening!

  • Great job on the film Phil, So good to see you living your dream and dreaming your life into being. Excellent production.

    • Thanks Willow I appreciate it man!

      Got 3 kg of Raw Cacao left and 3 months left before I go home, should be good :)

  • You're livin' the dream Phil! Reminds me of the good ol' days in Uni when we were swimming. I love the fact that you named your bike (RIP Green Machine, Red Rocket, Blue Bullet). Just a clarification, is checking out hot chicks part of the 'Feel Good Lifestyle'? Regardless, I love it.

    Keep up the good work! If you keep making it look so good, maybe I'll have to fly down there and join you.

    • Blairzy! So good to hear from you buddy. Hahah of course I had to name my bike.. even though I didn't get it from the infamous "Depot" ;)

      Well, checking out hot chicks does make me feel good, so yeah it's a part of my feel good lifestyle for sure!

      Dude you haven't seen anything yet.. The GoProHD has just arrived in the mail, we're about to take things to a whole new level.

  • Hey Phil, love the video, good effort had alot of fun watching it and if you don't mind me asking, what do you do now for a living?

    • Hey Corey, I'm just finishing up my MBA (Master of Business Administration) but I'm also working towards transforming this website into a business by providing people with exceptional ressources that will help them increase their energy and be more inspired to really go after the life they dream.
