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 a compelling video design 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 with total transparency

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. Plus, there’s nobody in the business as transparent as us when it comes to our rates. 

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.

Bonus reason: we’ve declared war on the “McSplainer”

While this cheeky video we created is fictional, it looks far too familiar, right? McSplainers are lazy, cliche-ridden explainer videos that pander to the lowest-common-denominator. At Gisteo, we think your brand deserves better than formulaic nonsense.

"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!). "
