RON HOWARDEver dreamed of taking a master class in filmmaking with Ron Howard? Your wish has been granted. The director/actor welcomed director Matthew Akers and the Tribeca team into his hotel suite to share unconventional trade secrets springing from his own professional experiences. In this four-minute video, Howard makes a case for regular salt baths, milk drinkin’, and mild forms of self-flagellation.Yes, it’s not what you’d expect from the two-time Oscar winner but even his most unorthodox methods speak to the core values of being a filmmaker: creativity, branding, collaboration, strategy and determination.Yes, yes we already know the hotel staff got the room service order wrong.  We agree that those responsible should be fired!  See if you can figure out how many references to Ron Howard's ouevre are contained in this silly video.
