So you love Gisteo but you’re looking for more affordable explainer videos?

We’ve got you covered…with K.I.S.S. Explainers! Watch our quick intro below. 

Affordable explainer videos meet the K.I.S.S. principle

Keep it simple, stupid!  Also known as the “KISS Principle.”  The saying has been around since the 1960s, but seems more relevant now than ever. People want quick, easy, and painless. They want simple. In fact, according to this Harvard Business Review article, the biggest driver behind a consumer’s decision to purchase is simplicity. And there’s nothing stupid about that.

K.I.S.S. is Gisteo’s “economy class” offering aimed at start-ups and organizations of all types who need simple, affordable explainer videos to better compete in today’s attention-challenged world. We combine the same creativity and storytelling chops that have been central to Gisteo’s success with slightly simpler animation/production techniques…to offer a product that even “Mom and Pop’s” can afford.

K.I.S.S. Examples

Unlike the diverse approaches you can see on our Portfolio page, K.I.S.S. affordable explainer videos are only available in two general styles. In Style 1 below, you’ll see some examples of the type of smart storytelling and simple, yet effective animation you can expect with K.I.S.S animated explainers.  In Style 2, you’ll see examples where we combine professional scripts with high quality imagery, graphics and text in these more “corporate” style explainers.   We subscribe to a couple of stock photo and video services. If we find the imagery in a service we’re subscribed to, there is no additional cost. If we need to purchase photos or clips not available with one of our existing services, we bill separately for these.

Style 1- Cartoon animation

Style 2- Photos/video clips with motion graphics

How K.I.S.S. Works

K.I.S.S. affordable explainer videos essentially work the same way as any Gisteo project. One slight difference: due to the more simplistic style, we normally start with character design upon finishing the script (Style 1), but we don’t do a full storyboard. We instead show you  sections of the video for you to preview and provide feedback along the way.

You can view the general Gisteo process and better understand what you need to do to get started here.
