Since 2011, Gisteo has been delivering clarity, “aha” moments and plenty of entertainment. Video is our medium, superior marketing communication is our mission. Transparent, value-based pricing starting at $3,000.
We don’t refer to ourselves as “ninjas” or “rockstars.” We don’t talk about making “epic” explainer videos because this isn’t the Iliad and you don’t want to go on an odyssey. Sure, we’re proud of our work but we prefer to let our clients do the hyperbolizing. Since so many of them come back for repeat projects, we must be doing things right.
That’s because it’s not about us. It’s about you and your marketing needs. Unlike other animation studios out there, we’re marketers first and foremost. We understand that great videos begin by fully understanding your target audience, value proposition and overall objectives.
Ultimately, we don’t sell animated explainer videos. We sell success. Your success. Whether that means more calls, clicks, conversions, sales or sign-ups…we are true business partners who simply use the art & science of video as a vehicle to help you achieve better outcomes, all at a fair price.

Good gisteos are like snowflakes- no two are exactly alike. Unlike snowflakes, however, our animated explainer videos & animated marketing videos don’t melt unless you were to place your laptop or device in a microwave (not recommended). We customize every project to the unique needs of our clients, while also carefully considering how and where they plan on using their gisteo. Below are just a few examples of recent projects.

WHO SHOULD NOT HIRE US
X You think experience is over-rated and you don’t mind serving as a “guinea pig” for an untested newbie.
X You could care less about quality; you’re just trying to find a dirt-cheap solution.
X You have time to burn and are fine if it takes months to slog through your production.
X You’re ready to “roll the dice” and hope that nothing gets lost in translation while working with folks in faraway lands.
X You crave the whole big agency “pomp and circumstance” and embrace paying 5x more for the work.
X You don’t want guidance or creativity; you just need an order-taker to execute exactly as you say…no questions asked!
