Last Frame of Picture. Film acronym for the length of a given reel of film, usually connoting the head leader up to and including the last frame of the reel. Because it is standard to start counting with the Picture Start from of the leader as 0000+00 (zero feet, zero frames), the actual running time of a reel can be calculated by subtracting 11+15 (eleven feet, fifteen frames) to account for the 12-foot, 8-second leader. The two-pop is at 0009+00, and the first frame of picture of a reel is at 0012+00, sometimes referred to as LFOA.
