About Lincoln Show Studio

We like being a small shop. To us, being small means thinking big, being nimble, innovative, cost-effective, strategic and ultimately different. As a boutique creative company, we work outside of the big agency model that can often charge high overheads for projects that also get lost in the priority shuffle.  Our deep experience in delivering dynamic ideas and award-winning productions helps us navigate seemingly impossible challenges, solve creative problems intuitively, and foster a working experience that elevates the process and inspires everyone involved.

From image campaigns, show launches and high-concept commercial shoots to brand designs, original music and story narrative, Lincoln Show brings a personalized approach that can only come from the meaningful experience of having “done it before.”  We know what it actually takes to deliver a look or idea.  While this gives us and our partners great comfort, it is working outside of that comfort zone that defines us. We believe taking those risks is what makes the collaboration stand out.

One of the greatest attributes of putting together the right team is having everybody care about the idea as much as you do. We work immersively with our celebrated actors and performers, our writers and producers, production teams and crews, editors and designers, musicians and mixers. We speak their language and the passions of our client partners, working side by side to create original campaigns and content that exceed expectations.

Our community of crews and creative teammates are guided by the same philosophy: Take the work seriously, but never yourself.

Recognition for Lincoln Show includes top industry awards for work on The Royals, House,  24, Glee, 2 Broke Girls, Prison Break, Fringe, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Smallville, in addition to their continued work with  brand and series campaigns for The CW, Warner Bros, Fox, NBCU/E!, Freeform, Esquire, DC Universe, The WB, Discovery/Seeker, Sony Television, Post Cereal, Epsilon Agency, Netflix, and Amazon.

About Matt Fife

Matt’s career as a live action director comes by way of television agency marketing where his work with studios, show brands, and celebrity talent helped established him as a visual storyteller. Throughout his career, Matt has earned a reputation for his easy rapport with A-list talent and for bringing original ideas that offer an alternative look to any project.

After years of working as an agency live action director for Fox and Warner Bros., actor Hugh Laurie and Writer/Creator David Shore invited Matt to direct and produce the first hour of the series finale of HOUSE M.D. (Episode 823, “Swan Song”), a mix of original scripted scenes, documentary, animation and music video narrative. Matt continued working with Hugh Laurie thereafter, producing and directing a 1-hour documentary special for ITV (Perspectives) including a live concert and music videos to support Hugh’s album release “Didn’t it Rain?” (Warner UK).

Matt has also created an original documentary series called Motorclub on NBC Sports Network.  Additionally, Matt has produced dozens of original songs and compositions over the years, including co-writing songs with Michelle Branch, George Clinton, and Soup and Marc7 from Jurassic 5.  In 2019, Matt will release LUCAS HIGH with Connie Price & The Keystones, a commercial crossover record featuring a roster of legendary MCs including Big Daddy Kane, Macy Gray, Talib Kweli, Brand Nubian, Lady of Rage, M.O.P., Brother J, Soup and Marc7 of Jurassic 5 and The Pharcyde.
