Super Pre-Roll

Enhance a :15 or :30 video ad with interactivity. A graphic overlay trigger appears on top of a brand’s video ad. (The trigger may appear in various positions over the video ad.) Clicking on the trigger pauses the Pre-Roll and expands an interactive panel with more robust content.


Viewer Experience

  • A :15 or :30 Pre-Roll video begins play.
  • An overlay trigger appears over the video.
  • Interacting with the overlay trigger by clicking or rolling over, pauses the Pre-Roll and expands an interactive panel with more robust content.
  • The interactive panel can support different types of features, including additional videos, photo galleries, and social features.

Execution Timeline

  • Allow two weeks for execution, from delivery of assets:
    • If Tremor Video is designing, 4 days for the creative brief and/or storyboard after all assets have been received
    • If client is designing, go straight to creative build (see below)
    • 5 - 7 days for the creative build once storyboard design is approved
  • Creative calls with client are highly recommended
  • Any major creative change during the campaign flight requires an additional 3-4 day build time
