It really comes down to the end goal of your video. The kind of video and length of the video depends on the platform it will be uploaded on and the audience it will be presented to. A longer length video can always be repurposed for various platforms.
We recommend anything from 30 seconds to 2 minutes or 5 minutes. It’s also important to keep your audience in mind and their attention span. Videos should be eye catchy, interesting and not longer than a few minutes. We’d like to help you figure out and discuss your current needs! You know how to get in touch with us.
We are sure you have a basic idea/thought and that can lead to an entire project. We have a team of experts with a ton of inspiration who are experienced in helping you release your ideas and help you plan and make the video you want.
A rough script from your end will allow us to provide script consultation and formatting which also means you are in charge of the marketing message you want to send to your potential customers. We also offer script writing services as a part of video pre-production but as we are experts in your business, the process sometimes is time-consuming and therefore expensive and for clients who do not mind and additional cost, we are happy to help.
These days we film most of our productions in 4k (Ultra High Definition) and deliver in 4k or FULL HD (High Definition) depending on the platform and the final output required. Our Systems and workflow are equipped to handle even 8K OR 6K Productions, whatever highest standard is required. We make sure that you get the best.
We have a team of writers, producers, directors, editors, technicians and you have an idea! So, why not? We can bring any vision, idea, and thought into reality. We know how the pitch process works and have an industry network to bring in the right support and sources. Call us if you are passionate and serious about making it into a reality.
We provide subtitles in various languages. We can add subtitles directly to the video or can create a separate subtitle file that can be uploaded to any platform along with the video. The external file allows you to switch on and off subtitles with options to switch between different languages.
Yes! We are open to travel. We had previously travelled to Africa, USA, Australia and different parts of India for several projects. We also have our production partners in different parts of the world.
Edits and Time
The time scale for each project depends on numerous factors and can vary between 2 weeks to 3 months; from our first meeting to the date of presenting the finished film. Whereas 4 to 5 weeks is average for a corporate video. Some projects take more time and some less, it all depends on how you want to customise it and we want to make sure that we deliver you with the best quality video in a suitable time frame.
The approval process on the client-side for making a commercial or video is usually the most time-consuming part and we move as quickly as you can.
Couch Potato Productions has a very well structured approval process. After you see the rough cut and request changes, we then provide you with a final cut where you can request additional changes. That means you have two (2) opportunities to provide feedback and request any kind of changes in post-production with your video.
The typical process lasts between 4 and 8 weeks, that is from the time your company accepts a quote and agrees to commission a media production video. To have a proper pre-production planning, we usually like to schedule a shoot at least 2 weeks out to allow setting up interview subjects, discussing specific goals and needs and allowing our clients adequate time to prepare their staff.
We aim to have a rough edit completed within 2-3 weeks from the time of production. The speed of the video creation from start to finish depends on the client’s swiftness of communication, which is why the range can vary between media production projects.
We are always enthusiastic about taking up last minute projects, give outstanding output and prove our strengths as a production house. We do same day edits and online editing for AD’s, Aftermovies and Virtual events. Same day edit doesn’t mean any compromise on quality from our end. We do Multicam live editing as well.

COSTS, EQUIPMENT AND RENTAL SPACE
We have basic to premium packages, which cater to all levels of clients and could be modified depending on the scope of the project. Basic packages require minimal production and single cinematographer which usually fulfils the need to produce a one minute video whereas premium packages involve advanced equipment, several crew members, longer shoots, and extensive editing. You can get in touch to know more and we will break it down for our better understanding.
The production cost for animation depends on a few factors such as the duration of the final animation, whether we are working from the scratch to design new characters, style and complexity of animation i.e 2D or 3D. Whatever your requirement is, we can find a solution.
We accept wire transfers, checks,Razorpay, Paypal payments and all major debit and credit cards.
An upfront deposit of 50% is required and 50% pay at the conclusion of the project, after the final video is delivered. The initial deposit pays our hard costs for pre-production planning and all other costs for the production phase.
