Our Story

Operating as an agile results-driven video marketing agency, the 29ERS work with customers around the globe, creating bespoke video ad campaigns.

We design innovative and compelling video strategies built on the four principles of Make Intelligent Video™, Strategy, Content, Distribution and Analytics.

Understanding and immersing ourselves in the unique challenges and opportunities facing each of our customers is our USP. We understand business complexity, we laser focus on the needs in your market and intelligently target your audience, utilising a proven strategy to drive measurable results for your business.

In 1998, Kev and Gillian O’Neil started their own business. Now, with over 20 years of entrepreneurial experience, they are the proud founders and CEOs of 29studios.

Kev and Gillian have run globally successful creative agencies and technology businesses throughout their career including an early adopter platform with Scotland’s first international award-winning B2B video platform in 2007 (LA Red Herring 100). Transitioning through the emergence of the video landscape, their wealth of experience, expertise and entrepreneurial spirit is woven into the fabric of 29studios.

Creative Director Lynne McGunigal worked with Kev and Gillian for a decade before coming on board at the inception of 29studios in 2009. Lynne joined in founding the company and now manages our team of talented content creators, 3D artists, filmmakers and editors.

In 2010, Katelin O’Neil followed in the footsteps of her entrepreneurial parents and joined the company as a filmmaker and editor. As Katelin innovated with the company, she moved into the project management side of the business and became 29studios Client Director. Katelin now heads up our team of creative digital marketers, project managers and analytics experts.

Affectionately known by our customers as the 29ERS, we pioneered Make Intelligent Video in 2012 and have taken 29studios international, working with some of the most successful, globally-renowned B2B companies in the world. As a family-run business with a tight-knit team, the 29ERS have always considered our customers as part of our family too which is why we go above-and-beyond to innovate around their needs. 

True to our DNA, we were the first in Scotland to launch our own agency show, The 29ERS Show. Now with 250K+ views and 130+ episodes, the 29ERS have documented customer projects, international business trips, and behind-the-scenes of agency life. The 29ERS Show has created an enviable blueprint in the creative industry in Scotland, inspiring many startups to start their own.
