Our interactive video “An Alien X-Mas”, which we released for simpleshow customers and partners during the 2018 holiday season, was awarded the “Award of Distinction” in the Branded Content category. The video stands out due to its interactive format where the viewer can determine the course of the video. This format was also recently popularized by the Netflix series “Black Mirror”.
