Hello everyone! My name is Jacob Stone. I am an instructional designer, a videographer, a photographer, a multimedia designer, a musician, and a thinker. Please feel free to navigate through the pages and check out my work I have done.
Upon graduation high school, I knew I wanted to go to college. Of course, how is any kid supposed to pay for college? At that time, I decided to join the military as a Military Police Officer in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. After returning from training, I began my adventure at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I participated in ROTC, the military service fraternity, the National Broadcasting Society, and upon graduation had earned a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Communications Media with a focus in video production. After graduation, there was a graduate program that caught my eye. After some thought and consideration, I enrolled in grad school and I am now working toward my Masters Degree in Adult Education and Community Technology. Currently, I am seeking a career in the field of instructional design and training and development. I have knowledge and experience with the ADDIE model and the systematic approach to instructional design and I am motivated to apply them in designing effective instruction for learners.
Phantom6Productions started as a small side project shooting video for clients. After shooting video for a few weddings and some word of mouth, more clients started to request videos. After a while, I began to realize how much of an importance that photography could play in videography and therefore, I began to take photos as well. The business has been steady and if it takes off some day, then that will be great. For right now, I enjoy the projects I do on the side, meeting new people, and doing what I love to do, which is making videos and taking photos.
