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.
