In The Deep Shade is a feature length film about The Frames.

Filmmaker Conor Masterson worked closely with the band over 18 months, beginning on their 20th anniversary tour in 2010.

'The Frames have always been very positive collaborators. I felt this was an opportunity to make a film that could explore their creativity as people and musicians as well as capturing some of their very dynamic and exciting live performances in close up.'

The film is for sale on DVD from The Frames' website www.theframes.ie or iTunes.

Conor Masterson's film In the Deep Shade is not a definitive career-spanning documentary of The Frames. Nor is it a fly-on-the-wall expose or an us-against-the-world hero saga. It is, simply put, a stark portrait of an extraordinary band, filmed during their 20th anniversary tour.
