"We had the pleasure to work with Stephen and the Gisteo team when he helped us bring to life a story through video for Oracle Retail. They helped us tell a complex story in a clear and concise way. We are very pleased with the final product. I would recommend working with Gisteo. Thanks Stephen! "

"Working with the Gisteo team was amazing. Our engineering services business often has good marketing ideas, but we struggle pulling all the creative elements together. Gisteo made this easy. We exchanged our ideas with them, and they ran with it. We are delighted with the results!”
Ted Messerly
President & Managing Director, Lumenance
"Gisteo successfully captured the style, mood and emotion we were looking for to help promote our latest campaign. The flexibility, professionalism and quick work on this video is much appreciated! We are very happy with the result and hope to work with you again in the future! "

"Gisteo is an excellent partner to work with. From start to finish, they carefully listened to our brand and project objectives. They then delivered thoughtful, intelligent executions when it came to our video and unique challenges. Gisteo is flexible, responsive and very creative...they are true professionals! "
April Elsinger
Marketing Manager, Mayo Clinic
"Gisteo's Creative Director, Stephen, is a consummate professional and extreme creative type all rolled into one. He is flexible and easy to work with but because he listens, I mean he really, really listens. He is able to understand what you are trying to accomplish with a given project. The upside is far fewer cycles of back and forth and getting quickly to a 95% correct solution so that when you iterate it is just at the margins, making something really goo into something absolutely perfect for your needs. I would be happy Gisteo to anyone and I know I will be using Gisteo's services again in the future. "
Andrew Plunkett
Global Professional Services Manager, Waters Corporation
"Gisteo was extremely accommodating on our latest video project. This was the second video Gisteo completed for my company. The final video is high quality and professional. But the pleasure of working with Stephen extends far beyond the mechanics. He listens carefully to understand the overall vision of the story and make sure everyone is on the same page. When we changed direction during the project, he was quick to adjust to our evolving goals. The value we received in return for his work ethic and the talented production was well worth the reasonable investment. Even months after the project completion, Stephen was quick to reply to my emails seeking some of his team's files for our own video production needs. His character and grace makes each project go smoothly. I highly endorse Gisteo's work and look forward to collaborating with them on future projects! "

"Gisteo saved me thousands of dollars (compared to all of the other viable options I considered when I was searching for a reputable explainer video production company) AND they produced the video in HALF the time the other companies promised. Stephen is a complete professional and embodies every attribute a client would want. He responds super quick to emails and also has a killer perspective as to what will best explain the branding and value proposition a company is offering. The best part is that he treated my bootstrapped "lean" startup the same way I would expect someone to treat a Fortune 500 company. Please save your time and money- just go with Gisteo"

"I worked with Gisteo to develop promotional videos for an online application. The process was very smooth as Stephen is a master of his domain. He was very insightful, professional and courteous throughout the entire project. Would work with Gisteo again or recommend Stephen company to anyone! "

" I worked with Gisteo on a video project for my company and was extremely impressed with their creativity and professionalism. Stephen is a great at communicating and kept me informed throughout the process. He worked on time and on budget and surpassed my expectations. I cannot be more pleased with the results and will work with Gisteo again in the future! "
Tom Milks

" I must say that Stephen and his company Gisteo are the best people/company I have ever worked with. After my initial contact, he e-mailed me the same day and then talked the next day. What CEO does that? Stephen does! He was in communication with me the whole time. He does not nickel and dime you either. His pricing is very reasonable, especially with the hands-on care from the CEO. Now let's talk about the product. I love the video Gisteo produced and so does everyone I show. Stephen is creative, talented, hardworking, funny, knows what works and delivers exactly what you ask. I suggest getting in now before he realizes his product can probably garner twice the amount he charges. Thanks again Gisteo, job well done!"
Gary Grosel MD
Founder & Co-Owner, Rapid Recert LLC
"Over the period of a year I spoke to Stephen about a number of projects which did not materialise. Throughout this time he provided solid guidance and advice that inevitable left me with a deep appreciation of his skills and a respect for his knowledge. Eventually we had the chance to move forward with a project and the results were excellent. If the true test of a recommendation is repeat business, then I would definitely work with Gisteo again. "
Tim Moorcroft
Director of Business Development, Montero Translations
"Gisteo pulled off a miracle for us! One of our clients was in start-up mode. They quickly needed a motion graphic video describing their complicated service in a simple and beautiful 120 second spot to be used on their new website and at an upcoming conference. We selected Gisteo as the vendor after it was recommended by two different colleagues. The turn-around time for the video was incredibly fast and the price couldn't be beat. Most importantly, the client ABSOLUTELY LOVED the video. Stephen was a pleasure to work with and highly creative and responsive. I highly recommend Gisteo! "
Scott McIntosh
Award-winning Digital Strategist
" I worked with Gisteo on three different marketing videos for Tenmast Software. I gave them detailed notes and themes about our company, from there Stephen and his team created a script and animated graphics. Our company was thrilled with the quality product we got from Gisteo and specifically Stephen. He's proven both business sense and creativity...quite the combo! Thanks for your hard work!"

If you are looking to produce a high quality promotional video at a competitive rate, look no further than Gisteo. First rate. "

Steve Durham
CEO, Envirocon Pest Control
"Gisteo was introduced to us by way of referral. After a consultation, a genre that would fit our needs was offered. Gisteo did an outstanding job translating our message in a bite-sized manner, getting straight to the heart of what was valuable to communicate. Gisteo proved to be an extremely experienced and professional partner that put into context our vision, fantastic storytelling (to the point), and production of our corporate video. We were so pleased with our explainer video that we immediately recommended Gisteo to our peers, and we will continue to do that as the occasion arises. Gisteo has since completed a second video for us with the equal skill of getting to the relevance of the message. Gisteo deserves a 5+ star rating. They articulate brand messaging, produce effective video material, and apply graphic design to meet the needs of any application."
Jennifer Raad
VP Operations, Significans
"My company worked with Gisteo for a 90 second animated explainer video. After 10 or more consultations with different video production companies, we decided to go with Gisteo - they were affordable, transparent, and had a collection of videos that were very impressive. The team at Gisteo, and Stephen specifically, impressed us every single step of the way. They listened, responded in a timely and concise manner, and delivered the highest quality product. We had a very short timeline to get this video launched and they were able to cut through the noise and capture our message in a way that was relatable and exciting. Can't recommend Gisteo enough. We will be back 🙂 Thanks, Stephen! "
Justin Bradshaw
Director of Marketing, Starting Point Behavioral Health
"My organization worked with Gisteo two separate times for a total of 3 animated explainer videos. Both were tight timelines and somewhat dense topics to explain. The Gisteo team made beautiful, easy-to-understand videos and made the process seamless. We handed off the info and the Gisteo team brought it to life with minimal involvement on our end--perfect for our busy organization. High quality product worth every penny (and competitive pricing, too!). "
Shannon Prentice
Senior Content and Marketing Manager, National Military Family Association
"Gisteo produced such an incredible animated video that I asked Stephen Conley and his team to produce a second one. I would highly recommend Gisteo to anyone looking to improve their business. "
Jason Hofsess
CEO, CitySolve
"We had an excellent experience with Gisteo. Talked to many companies with a much higher pricetag and a very complex process involving a ton of people. Gisteo offered a streamlined process with a single point of contact, and they got the story--and the look and feel for the animation--just right very quickly. "
Tiffany Wilson
Manager/Communications, Rayonier
" I've worked with Gisteo twice now to make two different explainer videos and I've been impressed each time. They have a real creative vision that allows them to turn rough ideas into a very well executed video. I also want to point out the after sales service -- even months after the video has been completed and approved, they have gladly made tweaks to my videos for me at no charge. The pricing is very reasonable and they work quickly. If you're looking to get an explainer video made, stop looking and just go with Gisteo. "
Eugene Beh
Founder and CEO, Quino Energy

"We used Gisteo for our non-profit's first animated explainer video and could not have had a smoother process. They understood the vision and goals of our video from the beginning, and provided helpful perspective and guidance throughout the scripting and storyboarding process. They were flexible and responsive to our feedback in drafting stages, and moved at rapid speed to meet our deadlines. We will absolutely be using them again. "
