This video helps visualize what the stack frame is all about.

What is important to understand from this video is that:

1) esp & ebp are the primary players when the stack frame is setup.
2) esp is always changing, especially when things are push and popped on the stack
3) since esp is always changing, ebp is needed to be a kind of thumbnail to reference items within a stack frame
4) the stack frame itself describes a functions collection of important data: a functions parameter list; a return address to the function that call it; and a functions local variables. All these data are reference via offset to the ebp.
