READY TO CHECK OUT SOME OF OUR WORK?

A cross-section of our many animated explainer videos, marketing videos, demos videos & business videos of all types, organized by style

When you’ve created over 700 animated marketing videos, properly showcasing what you do starts to get challenging. Nevertheless, we’ve tried to keep things simple and somewhat organized as follows:

  1. To the right, you can view our short “sizzle” reel with a tasty sprinkling of our work in one 90 second shot.
  2. Below, we provide samples of a number of our different gisteos, categorized by general style. Simply scroll down the page to view each category with examples.

This is by no means meant to be comprehensive collection of what we’ve done across all sectors, business types, approaches, languages, uses etc. Please contact us if you have a particular style or general reference in mind for what you’re looking to do: we’ll be sure to dig through our archives and tell you if we’ve done it or could do it.

Also, be sure to check out Stickman Videos, our exclusive “economy class” offering with slightly simpler animation techniques at prices that even “Mom & Pop’s” can afford.

CARTOON STYLE

Unless you’re a CPA (just a joke- no accountant hate mail please), chances are you love a good story. These entertaining, narrated gisteos are ideal for bringing the pain points of your target to life while presenting your offering in way that will stick. We clearly communicate the WIIFM (“what’s in it for me?”) factor – without smacking the viewer in the face and pleading “buy me!” We’ll leave that to the 3:00 am infomercials. Note: many of our cartoon gisteos also contain elements of motion graphics and include actual product images/screenshots. The biggest difference between this style and motion graphics (next section below) often lies in the art style of the characters themselves.

MOTION GRAPHICS

Are you “cartoon-phobic?” No problem, we get it. Sometimes, the situation calls for a different look and feel than the more cartoony stuff. With motion graphics, we’ve got the perfect solution for you. The beautiful graphics, vector-style artwork, slick screenshots and tantalizing effects of our motion graphics gisteos will make your message sizzle like bacon on Sunday morning. Characters in this style a(s well as much of the imagery) tend to be more abstract vs. the cartoon-style gisteos. This approach are perfect for intros, overviews, product demos, tutorials, screen tours and more.

TALKING CHARACTER/SPOKESPERSON

The “Gisteo Guy” on our home page spawned a whole new genre out there. Who knew a little square-headed dude could make so much of a splash? Well, he did, and now this close cousin of the aforementioned cartoon-style gisteo is spreading like wildfire. Forget those pricey prima donna actors on the green screen- our talking cartoon characters will pitch your USP in a unique way that will help your message cut through the clutter. Already have a mascot on your site or in your logo? No problem, we’ll animate almost anything and have it talking for you in no time!

KINETIC TYPOGRAPHY

Kinetic typography is the technical name for “moving text”— an animation technique mixing motion and text to express ideas. In less technical terms, it’s a really freaking cool usage of text captions, supplemented by graphics, charts, photos and music, to drive home your message and engage your audience. We utilize the previously mentioned motion graphics technique here although one of the key differences is voice over narration is not mandatory on these puppies as the words do much of heavy lifting.

HAND’S ON

In this approach, we utilize hand movements and cut-out images along with animation, whiteboard drawings and pictures to give these gisteos a real artisan feel. Each uses a mesmorizing visual device to guide the narration. There’s a lot we can do with these hands too- like sliding and removing images on the screen, pointing, writing, drawing or just about everything-barring an obscene gesture, of course. Hmmm..well, never say “never.”

GISTEO PLUS

Pardon the slightly cheesy analogy, but if videos were cars, our “normal” gisteos would be beautiful BMW’s or Mercedes. You know- high-performing, impressive to look at and drive, attractive to the opposite sex, etc. Gisteo Plus projects, on the other hand, are like special edition Lamborghinis. These meticulously engineered labors of love feature 3D product renders, CAD models, complex computer generated characters, elaborate backgrounds or other bells and whistles that put them in a class of their own. Due to the extreme amount of blood, sweat and donuts that go into Gisteo Plus projects, contact us to discuss as we quote them on a case-by-case basis.
