We like being a small shop. To us, being small means thinking big, stepping boldly but cost-effectively, bringing experience but adaptability.
As a boutique creative agency and studio production company, we have an immersive history behind the lens, building talent shoots, show campaigns, and social content from idea to finished broadcast. Beyond our shooting strategies for creating a dynamic volume of material, our specialized expertise helps us establish a kinship and trust with our clients and our talent.
Our deep background in working with studio actors, commercial talent and creative professionals contributes to the kindness and positive energy on our sets. For us, this sense of community is what creates meaningful results and experiences. From image campaigns, show launches and high-concept commercial shoots to brand designs, original music and story narrative, Lincoln Show Studio brings a personalized approach born from the real experience of having done it – we know how to fly superheroes, how to build sets and recreate worlds, how to create a space for actors and comedians to bring their best – no matter the scale or size of the project.
As a diverse and inclusive team, our shared spirit helps us navigate seemingly impossible challenges and schedules, solve creative problems without drama, and deliver creative assets that capture the vision of our clients.
One of the greatest attributes of putting together the right team is having everybody care about the idea with equal passion. We work closely 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 excitement of our visionary 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 yourselves.

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 establish his style as a visual storyteller. Throughout his career, Matt has earned a reputation for his easy rapport with A-list talent and for bringing an alternative look and tone to a campaign or project.
With 20+ years experience as a live action director and producer for studio marketing, episodic and original programming, as well as commercials, consumer brand content and original music, Matt brings both an intuitive approach to the creative process and a fluid shorthand with crew who help bring ideas to life. After working as the studio’s agency creative and shoot director for Warner Brothers and Fox, Matt was invited by actor Hugh Laurie and writer/creator David Shore to direct the first hour of a series finale event for House M.D. (Fox). Matt continued his collaboration with actor Hugh Laurie thereafter, directing and producing a 1-hour documentary for ITV UK, a collection of music videos, and a concert special for PBS in support of Hugh’s Warner UK music release (“Didn’t It Rain”).
Through his agency and production company LINCOLN SHOW STUDIO, Matt has produced and directed talent and series campaigns for Warner Brothers, The CW, Peacock, Fox, NBC/Bravo, Sony, Netflix, Hulu and more. His recent shoot teaser for TWISTED METAL (Peacock/Sony) was named to the shortlist for the 2023 Clio Entertainment Awards.
