Hidde Simons is the founder of Hiddenways. He is a highly qualified acting coach and has years of experience working on a variety of sets, within varying functions. He still regularly works as a director and also has several credits as a producer. The advantage of this is that he can empathize with all the people who contribute to a production. This allows him to be the empathetic link between the production and the actors. There is nothing more gratifying than helping someone to discover their hidden talents and make them visible. Everyone benefits from that.
