Between Takes 0.41 - The Rocky Franchise
Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate the occasion, Brad Gullickson and Aaron Prescott of the Rest.In.Pictures Podcast joined Shawn for a rewatch of the ENTIRE Rocky franchise, including the Creed films.

Episode 95 - Being There
Brian Bitner of the Lessons from the Screenplay team returns to Missing Frames to introduce Shawn to Hal Ashby's comedy classic Being There. Shawn has never seen a Hal Ashby movie before and knows next to nothing about the film (other than it being the inspiration for Wilco's second album's title). Will it live up to its heralded status or will its unconventional plot and structure throw Shawn for a loop?
Between Takes 0.40 - The Climb Interview: Michael Covino & Kyle Marvin
Back in January, Shawn caught the hilarious bromance deconstruction that is The Climb, directed by Michael Covino and co-written by both Michael and his buddy Kyle Marvin, who also star in the film. While the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters back in March, COVID delayed its release. Now that the film is (FINALLY) seeing a limited theatrical release on November 13, this interview, conducted back in March, can finally see the light of day.
Shawn chats with Michael and Kyle about how they met, pulling off the film's slew of truly incredible 'one-take' sequences and striking the balance between comedy and tragedy.

Episode 94 - Psycho
Happy Halloween, Missing Framers! Actor Will Madden (The Wolf of Snow Hollow, Beast Beast) has never seen Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho. He joins Shawn to discuss his reactions to the landmark horror film as well as the brilliance behind Psycho's unconventional plot structure and Hitchcock's unmistakable influence on modern moviemaking.

Now, a year and a half later, the film has finally been released with a fancy new title: 'The Devil to Pay.'
Shawn catches up with Ruckus and Lane for a SPOILER-FILLED follow up conversation discussing their amazing film, some more production stories and the challenges of creating a slow-burn thriller without boring your audience. They also discuss what the prolific pair have been up to as well as their hopes for the future of cinema in the wake of COVID-19.
