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.

Inspiration Is for Amateurs—The rest of us just show up and get to work.

The basic form of human stupidity is forgetting what we are trying to accomplish.

Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.

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

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

Successful collaboration does not require a single committee.

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

Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.

Quality of life doesn’t start when you go home at the end of the day.

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

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.
