‘People aren’t against you, but for themselves’ A few bags filled with blood, a promising child actor and some bloody beautiful cinematography! (If you don’t mind me saying.) For our priveleged readers, I have for you today an insight into the way Couch Kumaras devise films. Or, for some people, the stuff we eat in […]

Here at Couch kumaras, we love going into the finer details of things. That’s why our films make absolutely no sense until the fourth viewing (at least) and that’s also why we have no qualms about repeating a shot 47 times (the police ended up on our doorstep) just so we can fit in a […]
Well… almost. For the past few years I (Finn) have been tirelessly re making this website, for the purpose of giving our amazing fans the chance to get to know us a little better. However, without the feature of a blog, there wasn’t really that much extra to put on the website. I’ve now put […]
A little bit about us here at Couch Kumaras...
We are a small film production group, based in New Zealand. Though University and other shenanigans have us separated, we each share the everlasting passion to make short films, and to be filthy, filthy rich. We pride ourselves on a unique style that blends comedy with action and drama, and one that grips the audience so tightly by the balls. 5 excruciatingly slow years on from its creation, Couch Kumaras is still making it's way up the heirarchy of film success, and by the end of this year we expect to have at least 10,000,000 followers on Youtube alone.
In all honesty, the V48 Hours Film Competition is where we hold the majority of our success. Because in 2012, we really buggered it up and handed the film in late, 2011 has been our best year yet. We took away the National Cinematography + National Score award, along with first place at the Wellington finals, and a few other Regional awards. This year, there will be no VFX, no losing the Microphone, no $200 costumes, and no $80 piece of driftwood from the costume store, which we lost and had to forfeit our bond as well as an additional $20.
The Couch Kumaras team is made up of 5 core members: Finn O Connor, Conor Cameron and Josh Dey, Sam O'Connor and Andrew Douglas. That's us on the homepage. Though our team has expanded somewhat from previous years, we felt it was necessary to get a full time Boom operator, instead of relying on Conor's 12 year old brother, which we may well do again in the future.
