GIST + VIDEO= GISTEO

The essence, central theme, crux or core idea of a topic. The heart of the matter, the substance of an idea. The most important information about something.

Gisteo: noun [jist-ee-oh]

1. A highly seductive animated video that clearly explains the “gist” of what your product, service, organization, offering or concept is all about.

2. An antidote to mediocrity in the explainer video space.

WHAT GISTEO CAN DO FOR YOU

  • Explain the gist of what you do quickly, clearly & concisely
  • Supercharge your value proposition in a way that words alone can’t do
  • Replace confusing blah-blah text with audio-visual aha! moments
  • Make it rain with higher conversion rates
  • Save serious dough vs. some of the big agencies or over-priced boutiques

PICK OUR BRAIN…FOR FREE! 

We’ve been doing this since 2011 and have produced hundreds of animated videos for organizations across countless different sectors.  We know our stuff, not just about explainer videos, but also about marketing and branding in general. We’ll be happy to set up a time to speak with you and give you suggestions on overall approach, style, length etc. And don’t worry, there’s no obligation to buy a Gisteo and we won’t relentlessly bombard you with spammy emails afterwards. 

SOME RECENT WORK

Good gisteos are like snowflakes- no two are exactly alike. Unlike snowflakes, however, our animated marketing videos don’t melt unless you were to place your laptop or device in a microwave (not recommended). We customize every project to the unique needs of our clients, while also carefully considering how and where they plan on using their gisteo. Below are just a few examples of recent projects.
