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.

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

Be amazing or be surpassed.

We have nothing to fear but fearful clients.

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

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

Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room.

That rug really tied the room together.

Your target is not the overzealous client, it is the ambivalent consumer.

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

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

If people don’t either love or hate your work, you haven’t done all that much.

Anybody can jump a motorcycle. The trouble begins when you try to land it.
