Why choose Gisteo?

We get it.  There are a lot of options out there these days when it comes to animated explainer video companies.  You’re weighing your decision carefully and want to make the right choice.

Below, we’ll give you some food for thought to hopefully make that decision easier.  And, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Top 5 reasons to choose Gisteo

1. Outstanding writing

No amount of eye candy or animation wizardly will save a lousy script. Just like great Hollywood movies, great explainer videos begin with engaging scripts and nobody spins better story than Gisteo.

2. Diverse animation styles

Once you have that outstanding script, you need to bring it to life with compelling animation and Gisteo in no “one-trick pony” in that regard. We’re skilled in a wide array of versatile styles tailored to your unique script- including motion graphics, whiteboard, cartoon, 3D, kinetic typography and more.

3. Value-for-money

Honestly, we can’t compete with low-balling crowdsourcing sites or those dudes from exotic lands promising “epic” explainer videos for $300. On the other hand, we’re not going to charge wildly bloated big-agency fees either. We simply deliver a quality product with fast, attentive service at a fair price.

4. Experience

Rest assured, this isn’t our first rodeo.  We were one of the very first companies in the animated explainer video space when we launched back in 2011.  We’ve honed our craft over the years and we’ve gotten the process down to a science. To date, we’ve produced over 1,500 videos across diverse sectors for clients on every continent.

5. The work

We can talk until we’re blue in the face, but, ultimately, the proof is in the pudding, isn’t it? Check out our portfolio page to see for yourself and contact us if you’re looking for a particular type of video that you don’t see there. Chances are, we’ve done it.

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!

I must say that Gisteo is the best company I have ever worked with. After my initial contact, Stephen e-mailed me the same day and then talked the next day. What CEO does that? Stephen does! I love the video Gisteo produced and so does everyone I show. Gisteo is creative, talented, hardworking and funny. I suggest getting in now before Stephen realizes that Gisteo can probably garner twice the amount he charges. Thanks again Gisteo, job well done!

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!).
