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.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Successful collaboration does not require a single committee.

All important movies start in black.

It’s not enough to be busy… We must ask: ‘What are we busy about?’

Excellence must be an earned word, attributed by others to us, not proclaimed by us about ourselves.

The client may be the judge, but the consumer is the jury and executioner.

Far better is it to dare mighty things.

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.

Be amazing or be surpassed.

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

We have nothing to fear but fearful clients.

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