Quixote Studios

Shortly after JPR was formed, it began a crisis communications assignment for Quixote Studios. (Quixote and the Teamsters were involved in a nasty labor dispute.)  Over the years, the crisis assignment has evolved into a much broader corporate communications assignment that has brought JPR – and the media – into every facet of Quixote’s rapid expansion. Thus, what many thought was an unsexy business – studio space, equipment trucks, star trailers – became of interest to reporters looking for a fresh story.

Business for Quixote exploded after JPR procured a Los Angeles Times profile of Quixote CEO Mikel Elliott. The Times profile heralded Quixote as “the entertainment industry’s premier studio and equipment rental company, presiding over a fleet of Hollywood’s most elegant talent trailers…” JPR subsequently negotiated a series of ad trade-out agreements that brought the entertainment trade papers and their events into Quixote’s main Hollywood studio; this while the trades have for years ran Quixote advertisements featuring the Times priceless quotes.
