A strategic marketing firm + video production studio, rolled into one

Production know-how is essential but, first and foremost, it’s about clearly communicating your value proposition and crafting a message that will get you the results you deserve.  Gisteo combines deep strategic marketing expertise with superior scriptwriting and stellar production skills to deliver much more than ”just another explainer video.”

Let's talk!

Delivering quality– without burning your budget

No, affordable explainer video production doesn’t mean “cheap.”  There’s a difference and we’re all about offering true value-for-money. For most organizations, it’s overkill to spend $20-30K+ on a single video that you may only use for a year or less. We often produce entire explainer video series for that rate, which gives you much more bang for your marketing bucks.  Plus, we’ve got an discount membership plan designed to help you save even more.

Explainer Video Production

Explainer video production should be painless

Painless process

You’ve got a business to run. You last thing you want to do is babysit your explainer video studio.  With Gisteo, you don’t need to “know everything” ahead of time. That’s our job.  We do the heavy lifting with a proven, pain-free process so you can focus on your job while we do ours! 

How it works

Versatile animation styles to fit your needs

We don’t do cookie-cutter work. Below are a few examples of our diverse styles. Be sure to check out our Portfolio section for much more.

2D Animation

Engaging videos that combine characters and motion design to vividly present your target’s pain points, bridging the gap between an overly cartoonish approach and the more abstract Motion Graphics style

Motion Graphics

Motion graphics provide a more corporate look, animating elements for clarity and impact. Characters, if present at all, are more abstract, making it perfect for demos, tutorials, and comprehensive overviews.

Mixed Media

Seeking realism in your video? Mixed media blends live-action with motion graphics, text, and visuals. Use your footage or our curated stock videos, delivering a cohesive narrative without the need for pricey camera teams.

Kinetic Typography

This approach artfully combines moving text, images, motion graphics and music. While voiceovers are optional, the text’s prominence makes it ideal for social media and autoplay platforms with default-muted volumes or bustling conference halls.

But are we really the right fit?

We admit it: Gisteo’s animated explainer videos aren’t for everyone. Here’s how to figure out if we’re the best choice for you.

Who should hire us?

  • You value experience and a track record working with the world’s leading brands.
  • You’re looking for a quality video and will pay a fair rate for a premium product.
  • You want to work with a firm that is fast, efficient and responsive.
  • You prefer US-based companies, available during your work hours.
  • You seek big-agency thinking and skills but you can live without the bloated fees & processes.
  • You want professionals who will deliver expert guidance.

Who should not hire us?

  • You think experience is over-rated and don’t mind serving as a “guinea pig.”
  • You could care less about quality; you’re just trying to find a dirt-cheap solution.
  • You’re fine with a long slog of a production.
  • You want to go offshore & hope that nothing gets lost in translation.
  • You crave the big agency “pomp and circumstance” and embrace paying 5x.
  • You don’t want guidance; just an order-taker…no questions asked!
