Meet the Teacher
|Matthew David Chewiwie|
Matt is a product of the Vista Unified School District, passing through Lake Elementary, Madison Middle, and Rancho Buena Vista High School. Matt spent most of his high school career heavily involved with the RBV Band program, where he played euphonium horn, was section leader during his senior year marching season, and even marched in the 2003 Rose Parade. During this time, he became very interested in the performing arts. Matt regularly would attend every Drama production, but never considered it as something he could actually ever take part in. He had already been branded a "band geek."
During his final semester, Matt found a way to combine everything he had learned into a single multimedia project - a 30 minute capstone performance called "Out of My Head", where Matt used video projection mapping in tandem with choreographed stage movement and props. Matt did all the video editing, mapping, choreography, directing, lighting design, and performed in the show as well. It was the most elaborate and time consuming project Matt had ever undertaken at that point in his life.
