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.

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.

A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.

You shouldn’t do things differently just because they’re different. They need to be… better.

How could this happen? I was so careful. I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?

Kerning is caring.

Mistakes are an inevitable consequence of doing something new.

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

Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.

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

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

Far better is it to dare mighty things.
