STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
Meg Fry
Let me start by saying that Jared Kelner has completely earned my trust and admiration, as both a person and a teacher. Having worked professionally in the film, television and theatre industry, I know all too well how rare it is for an acting instructor to care most about your mental well being over the craft itself - but Jared does. His empathetic and highly emotional approach to prepping oneself to embody a character is far more powerful than any technique there is to be learned. But if it is pure knowledge you seek, Jared's studied and taught it all - regardless of which class you take with him, be prepared to learn everything and anything from Meisner to Strasberg to Stanislavsky to Adler to names you've yet to learn of and will never forget - all infused with Jared's unique perspectives. Jared has personally encouraged, guided and supported me in using my own experiences to find deeper, more meaningful connections with characters, and also, to enjoy stepping into a character's shoes for a while so I can be completely out of my own. I would and have recommended him to anyone who is open-minded, humble, willing and serious in honing their approach to both stage and film acting.

I’ve taken two acting classes with Jared Kelner, both in Rahway through Fearless Production. Any actor in the area who hasn’t studied with Jared is seriously missing out. Jared is an entertaining person who explains acting theory in a clear and accessible way. He could lecture on Strasberg, Meisner, Stella Adler, and Eric Morris all day and it would be interesting the entire time. But that was not the focus of class. Class time was mostly used for exploring and practicing several craft techniques for developing both the actor and the character. These techniques have already been proven effective for Jared and/or his students during his 20+ years as an actor and acting teacher.
The class I took was a four hour class on Sunday nights, but my growth as an actor went far beyond those four hours. Jared expects his students to work hard outside of class time, and he works equally hard outside of class time, if not harder. He frequently checked in with me and the other students during the week, he saw a production that I was in to provide feedback, and he even met with me and other students in our class to work on scene study outside of class time. I’ve become a much better actor thanks to the class I took with Jared, and I recommend that anyone else looking to improve their craft sign up for his next class.

Sarah Haruko
The Fearless Core Level 3 class with Jared was fantastic. Jared teaches a range of emotional prep and craft techniques so you have a lot of different tools available, depending on what you/your scene needs. The students in class are serious about their craft, which motivates everyone really focus and do their best work. And because we had many different actor types, we could learn a lot from each other, too. What's great about Jared, though, is that his passion for sharing the joy of acting is so apparent in class. Through his thoughtful and honest feedback, you can feel how much he wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend working with Jared if you have the opportunity.

Morgan Vasquez
Jared's class is as freeing and fun as it is emotionally challenging and brutally honest. His knowledge of various techniques gives you an opportunity to make new discoveries each and every time you work, all of which are practical tools to take into the audition room or a new role. If you're new to acting, seeking to improve, or simply staying on your game, this is the class to take. You WILL grow as an actor, you WILL go to new places as a performer, and by the end, you WILL be fearless.

Mary Sullivan
If you want to be a better actor take this course! I learned so many techniques and strategies to make my characters more in depth and realistic.  Each week was a new approach or technique with time to apply and learn from Jared and your classmates.  Jared's enthusiasm and passion is invigorating.

In this 1 hour 25 minute video, Actor, Acting Teacher and Playwright, Jared Kelner, guides you through three Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) explorations to help you set emotional anchors that when triggered, will instantly result in a shift in your emotional state. Using NLP Anchors and Triggers as an acting craft technique to help you elevate your emotional state to a level required by the script will help every actor looking to enhance their skills. Whether you are trained in the techniques of Meisner, Adler, Strasberg, Hagen, Chekhov, Morris or any other, this addition to your "Actor's Toolbox" will help you quickly fulfill the emotional obligations of the script. Actors can use this emotional trigger technique off-stage or off-camera as an emotional preparation tool, but it is so subtle that you can also use it while on-stage or while the camera is rolling. Simply set the emotional anchor and then when you need a specific emotion, just push the button and the desired emotional state will instantly be brought forth.
MEMORY TRAINING FOR ACTORS
Learn How To Use Your
Creative Instincts
To Memorize Your Lines
LINE?
The Creative Way for Actors
to Quickly Memorize
Monologues and Dialogues
 
If you've ever struggled to remember your lines, the creative memorization techniques taught in LINE? will help you break through your mental blocks and accelerate the line memorization process. Author Jared Kelner has applied his experience as an actor and acting teacher and combined that with his expertise as a memory improvement trainer and created an imagination and sensory based process for actors to use when memorizing lines. It’s an innovative approach to line memorization that taps into the actor’s imagination and acting training rather than relying on monotonous rote memorization methods like highlighting, recording and repeating lines over and over. By applying the creative memorization methods presented in LINE? you will instantly recall your lines.
  

ACTOR TESTIMONIAL
Here is what one NY actor had to say after attending one of Jared's seminars where he taught the techniques in his book "LINE?"

Jared,
I was in your class at The Network last night. OMG!!!! You are ffing unbelievable. 
I am so excited, you have changed my life in a night with the information you gave us. I worked with the book all the way back home on the train last night and was up early this morning to continue. 
Did the monologue in the Room Pegging method. WOW. So easy.
I can't tell you what anxiety and fear has been plaguing me all these years. There is nothing worse than working with A-listers and famous directors and you go up. The fear is huge. 
What you have done in a single night has changed my life. I can already feel the weight lifting off my shoulders and the fun coming back into my work. 
I literally felt like skipping back to Grand Central last night.
Next Sat I leave for a cruise to the Caribbean and you know what book I am bringing!!!!! 
In January I will be reaching out to set-up some practice coaching sessions with you. (Oh god this is fun) Can you let me know what your rates are?
Thank you so much for taking the time to write the book on this topic and I can't wait for your next project on NLP.
All the best,
Thomas

INDUSTRY TESTIMONIALS

"I have been teaching acting for over 50 years and I rarely come across innovations to the craft process that I believe in and support. Without hesitation, I fully endorse and recommend Jared Kelner's book LINE? The Creative Way for Actors to Quickly Memorize Monologues and Dialogues. ​Every actor must memorize lines and most actors look at the line memorization process as something outside of the craft of acting, but in fact, it is very much an integral part of the craft process and as such, actors need a craft technique to help them. In his book LINE?, Jared Kelner brings something inventive, innovate and important to the craft of acting. The technique of imaging that Jared teaches for line memorization mirrors imaging concepts I share in my book Acting, Imaging and the Unconscious. I am pleased to endorse Jared Kelner and his contribution to our craft. LINE? is a must read for every actor."
Eric Morris: Actor, Acting Teacher and Author of “No Acting Please”, “Being and Doing”, “Irreverent Acting”, “Acting From the Ultimate Consciousness”, “Acting, Imaging and the Unconscious”, “The Diary of a Professional Experiencer” and “Freeing the Actor

“I wish I had a dime for every actor who has told me their biggest fear was memorizing lines. So I was delighted when I discovered Jared Kelner and was able to introduce him to my students. The response to LINE? Was so positive. The actors felt they had received valuable tools to overcome their fears and move forward in their work with confidence. Jared’s positive enthusiastic style is so encouraging it’s a pleasure to be in the classroom with him.”
 

Valerie Adami: Owner/Director Weist Barron Acting for Film & TV 

"OK Actors, Quiet your mind and get this book. It will change your life for knowing your lines forever."



Tim PhillipsFounder of The Tim Phillips Studio in Los Angeles and author of “Audition for Your Career, Not the Job: Mastering the On-camera Audition


"Kelner has taken the drudgery of memorization and changed it into a creative exercise that enriches the acting while learning the lines.
As a senior citizen actor it's invaluable for this old dog to learn these new tricks of memorization.
Using a full palette of memory aids, he gives the actor choices to find the methods that resonate best for any role or situation.
As an acting teacher I heartily recommend his approaches for any actor."
