No surprises, gimmicks or games. Just clear, easy-to-understand rates.

Unlike other firms in the explainer video space, who often try to “size you up” to understand your budget and shift prices accordingly, we think it’s important to provide you with some clear parameters. Below, you can review our fees and what is included, along with turnaround times. You’ll see that we charge a base rate for the first minute plus $500 per 30 second increment thereafter- although we are willing to negotiate on significantly longer videos.

This pricing applies to all our different animated video styles.  The only exception would be for special jobs that include elements like highly complex 3D work, CAD modeling, etc. which would fall under what we call Gisteo Plus and need to be quoted on a case-by-case basis.

Feel free to contact us for more information and be sure to review the Process/FAQs page to get a better sense of our process in general. If your organization is planning on doing more than two videos, consider becoming a Gisteo Preferred or Gisteo Platinum customer– two great ways to save big-time money on multiple productions.


A perfect option if your script is 100% ready to roll. You supply the approved script with visual cues/instructions and we'll bring it to life!

“In the process of creating a unique new app, it became apparent to us that an ‘explainer video’ was the route we should take to convey quickly and efficiently what makes our product so special.   This ‘aha’ moment quickly turned to dismay as the initial companies we found were way beyond our means financially. We had just invested a lot of money in creating the app, after all.  Hours and hours of searching for a more affordable option finally led me to Gisteo.  [Rousing cheers please]  Stephen was great to work with and the process was very easy. Ultimately the video we have has exceeded our expectations and we are psyched to go to market with it.  When we are successful, we will be very mindful that Gisteo played an important part in helping us on our journey.” – Gigi Duncan.
