NEW YORK (August 6, 2014) Director Ron Howard, 60, lets aspiring filmmakers in on some of his secrets and into his hotel room in a video released Wednesday by New York's Tribeca Film Festival.
The Oscar winner stars in "Leading By Example," a digital short released in conjunction with the festival's call for submissions Wednesday.
He first appears in pajamas in the four-minute video, inviting the camera into his hotel suite.
“Salt baths keep your skin baby-soft for decades,” he offers as his first tip.
While wearing a robe, Howard sketches out a mathematical formula for directing he developed during "A Beautiful Mind."
Finally dressed, he prepares for the challenge of filmmaking by intentionally putting rocks in his shoes to "maintain a steady baseline of discomfort."
The Tribeca Film Festival is set for April 15-26, 2015.
