Blu Blu

(starting at $5,000)

When it comes to explainer videos, you’ve got to hook viewers, and hook them quick. That said, there are many ways to get people’s attention. Blu Blu uses their beautiful original art as the base of all the content they create.
If you’ve got a product, service, or business that vibes well with a more artistic feel, Blu Blu needs to be on your list to take a look at. Their portfolio has many examples of their great work, and is worth investigating.

What the reviews say:

The art is exceptional, and working with Blu Blu is a streamlined and pleasant process.

Epipheo 

(starting at $10,000)

Some people enjoy working with boutique agencies. Some prefer agencies that focus on art. Some want a focus on the script. And others like working with big agencies that have a big team. That’s Epipheo. With over 5,000 completed videos for over 3,000 clients, they’ve got plenty of experience across the board!

For their explainer videos, they handle both animation and live action, delivering high-quality products in either category. And again, with their large team, they can handle any type of project you may have.

What the reviews say:

While Epipheo may be one of the biggest explainer agencies out there, clients always felt supported and connected to their team from the beginning to end of a project.

Switch Video

(starting at $10,000)

Experts often do one thing, and one thing well. Switch knows the business world. That’s their focus, and they pride themselves on their expertise in finance, corporate, and tech.

If you’ve got a complex concept and need a business-minded creative partner, throw these guys into the mix. They’re another great agency that does well simplifying those big ideas that aren’t as easy to grasp.

What the reviews say:

Great storytelling skills and a full marketing team to help build a complete video strategy.

Wyzowl

(starting at $5,000)

Wyzowl has been in the game for almost a decade now, and has produced north of 3,000 explainer videos.But what sets them apart is their willingness to innovate. For example, they now offer interactive explainer videos (you can see demos on their site), which allows a new way to keep viewers engaged and informed. 

If you’re looking for standard explainer videos – and hey, let’s face it, those still work great – Wyzowl of course does that too.

What the reviews say:

Clients appreciate the professionalism and customer service of the Wyzowl team. Perhaps it’s that British courtesy!

Demo Duck

(starting at $12,000 – $20,000)

Another agency that has been around since near the beginning of explainer videos is Demo Duck. They are another great option if you’re looking for video content that goes beyond explainers. From commercials to branded videos and beyond, they also have a full department for industrial type videos like customer testimonials and internal company videos.

While priced a bit higher than some of the other options on the list, all their clients speak highly of them and say it’s worth every penny.

What the reviews say:

Demo Duck has it down to a science. They’ve got their formula that works, and they are right there with you the whole way ensuring a high-quality video gets made.

Explainify

(starting at $10,000)

If you’re a tech company or have a tech product, Explainify may be the agency for you. They are big on taking complex ideas and simplifying them in a 60 – 90 second explainer video. That’s their bread and butter.
So if you’ve got that brand new blockchain product that cycles nodes through SQL queries (I made that up, but it sounds tech-y, right?) and you’re trying to get investors to understand, add these guys to your list of potential agencies.

What the reviews say:

Clients say Explainfy’s crew is great at listening and helping them to craft a branding message that simplifies the complex.

Skeleton Productions

(starting at $10,000)

Another agency hailing from England, Skeleton takes a marketing-forward approach to video production. Sure style and art is good, and music is important, but they’ve got a team that’s focused entirely on marketing strategy. Their angle is effectiveness, and we don’t disagree. What’s the point of spending tons of money on a beautiful video that doesn’t sell your product? Skeleton works hard to make sure that doesn’t happen.

What the reviews say:

Clients are happy with Skeleton’s attention to detail and their ability to hit deadlines, even tight ones. Plus they’re another agency with a big live action team.

Studio Pigeon

(starting at $5,000)

Pigeon is another art-based agency. If you’ve got a love for amazing design and immersive art, they should be high on your list. As a matter of fact, Pigeon’s portfolio expands well beyond advertising and marketing. They are also known for their cartoon series animation and short films. Spend a moment on their site and you’ll see they take their art very seriously!
