Daniel Wahlen

Director, “The Hideout”

From an early age, Daniel loved stories. He ambitiously embarked on writing a fantasy novel in the fourth grade, only to discover a love for photography a short time after. It didn’t take long for him to connect the two—resulting in his ever growing passion for filmmaking.

He still loves to travel; Daniel feels at home wherever he is able to express himself creatively.
