The Jax Studio

Founded in 2015 by Linda Carlson, Angus Wall, and Scott Goldman, Jax is a boutique collective of editors and creatives for film and tv marketing.  The agency is located on the Rock Paper Scissors, Elastic, and A52 Santa Monica campus, in Frank Gehry’s historic model shop. Built on the belief that advertising can also be entertainment, Jax’s unique “voice” strives to surprise and excite audiences. Our incredible team works closely with Elastic and A52 to offer unparalleled capabilities for our clients.

Invention requires a long-term willingness to be misunderstood.

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

A company is only as good as its people and how excited they are about creating.

“Why are you so sweaty?” “I was watching Cops.”

We’re not looking for a Rock Star. We’re looking for a Rock Band.

The longer you keep your head up your ass, the less oxygen you have to breathe!

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

Few things guarantee failure faster than the “safe” option.

Criticize by creation.

Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.

Craft is what we are expected to know; art is the unexpected use of our craft.

Far better is it to dare mighty things.
