I highly recommend this wonderful Toolbox for the actor. Jared Kelner is an esteemed acting teacher and coach who can work with all actors. Whether or not you have years of training, or are just getting started, Jared has designed this incredible resource which allows you to pick and choose whatever you need. If you’re on your way to an audition and want to refresh what’s most important, or you’re working on your craft at home, this is a lifelong must-have for any performer.

This Toolbox is amazing! The concept is so brilliant and the execution is so specific and detailed and well organized. Just the conceptualization process must have taken years of percolating ideas and the result is so practical and useful! I think this can be helpful to directors as well as actors. As a director, I believe that you have to encourage the actor to use whatever method works best for them, but sometimes you and the actor can get stumped figuring out how to get to the desired result. This Toolbox offers so many pragmatic choices for getting where the character (and so the scene and play) needs to be in an "inside-out" and very usable sort of way. Well done!!!

I have never come across an online platform that teaches acting from the master teachers as well as The Craft Technique Toolbox. The highly knowledgeable instructor breaks down the content in a user-friendly video format that you can watch, pause and replay at your convenience. The tool box offers a wide variety of options and techniques to help you bring a character to life truthfully. Epiphanies are in every video. I have been waiting for an online platform like this to continue building my actor’s toolbox and navigate my craft. This toolbox should be on every actors computer & mobile phone. I am incredibly grateful to have found this affordable resource.

As an actor and director, I found the Actor’s Craft Technique Toolbox to be an extremely valuable resource not only for actors but for directors as well. The structure of the toolbox is well organized and easily searchable. There are hundreds of videos with explainers which makes it a simple process to either refresh your memory of a craft technique or to learn a new one. It’s the first comprehensive approach for self-education and training for actors that I have experienced. Whether I’m using my phone, tablet or laptop, having all these tools in a one-stop-shop system has been undoubtedly the best method for me especially when time is of the essence. I give the toolbox my highest endorsement. I am confident you will love it as much as I do!

I became a fan of the “Actor’s Approach Craft Technique Toolbox” the minute I realized what it is – an acting coach in your pocket, or wherever you keep your cell phone. The information found here is any actor’s dream to the how-to of acting, from breathing techniques to fulfilling an obligation, and everything in between. With easy navigation to what an actor needs, whether he or she is at home rehearsing, at an audition, in the dressing room before the curtain call, or waiting for the director to call action, the hundreds of instructional videos are purposeful and aim to give the actor results he or she needs. If you’ve never studied acting before, this website is setup to walk you thru the disciplines, techniques and tools of acting as if you were enrolled at an acting school. And if you’ve studied for years but going back to your notes to refresh yourself seems to be a daunting task, then this website is designed for you as well. I can’t express how thrilled I am that someone has finally created a toolbox of craft technique for the actor that can be easily accessed any time of any day. It is indeed the genius of modernity for every actor, but especially for the Millennials and beyond. I recommend “Actor’s Craft Technique Toolbox” to every actor who has the upmost respect for this precious art form.

The Craft Technique Toolbox is outstanding and incomparable. When I take an acting class, I tend to be an avid note taker. But let's face it, when the time comes to go back and look at my notes for reference, I don't even know where to begin. The Craft Technique Toolbox is a virtual index easily organized for the actor to use for reference at the drop of a dime. I am no longer afraid that I'm not going to be able to lookup a tool or find a technique that will help me with my process as an actor. It is now only a few clicks away!

What a find! "The Actor's Craft Technique Toolbox" is an incredible source of information and inspiration! I was on an audition for an original play and the sides didn't offer much information about the character. I was able to pull out my phone get some instant insight on how to pull information from other characters in the play to better understand my character and how to make my interpretation stand out! Knowledge and preparation breed confidence. The Craft Toolbox gives me the tools, techniques, and craft knowledge to be more confident going into any audition. I highly recommend it!

The Craft Technique Toolbox is a game-changer for everyone interested in the art and craft of acting. The Toolbox pulls together techniques and tools that will help actor -- from the novice to the most experienced performer. I especially appreciate this as a Director, who often works with actors who are at different points in their acting journey. The Toolbox provides a common language that we can use while working and will equip the actor to do the critical homework on their character and the piece. From Stanislavski to Strasberg to Meisner, the Toolbox offers an array of techniques, explained in detail, but most importantly, offers examples of how to use them. The Craft Technique Toolbox is a major winner in my book.

The videos are short and precise providing the perfect amount of information and the website is logically categorized making it extremely user-friendly. Without a doubt, I will utilize this resource on a regular basis going forward.
