Ron Howard offers filmmaking tips

Ron Howard has released a video of filmmaking tips to help promote New York's Tribeca Film Festival.

The 60-year-old Oscar winner stars in Leading By Example, a digital short released in conjunction with the festival's call for submissions.

Ron first appears in pajamas in the four-minute video, inviting the camera into his hotel suite. His first tip? "Salt baths keep your skin baby-soft for decades."

While wearing a robe, Ron 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.
