While Fader the VR/360 platform will (hopefully) be around for a long, long time, Fader the consortium (DW, Euronews, Vragments) is about to disband in a couple of weeks. That’s because the Fader/VRappr DNI project is running out. Of course, we’re going to have a grand finale!

No worries: The summer break is long over. It only took us a while to write a thorough Fader update post. Because everybody in the consortium (DW Innovation, Euronews, Vragments) has been really busy.
We – or more precisely: the alpha geeks among us — gave the editor/platform a couple of cool new features. We also attended and/or hosted several interesting VR/360 events in the last couple of months. And we made sure Fader won’t run out of fresh content anytime soon.
Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve achieved since the beginning of August.

Beta testing digital tools is fun. Beta testing digital tools can also be strenuous, which is why most beta testers stick to a testing schedule and rarely add new work packages. However, much to our delight, our colleague Ole Krogsgaard at Euronews did exactly that: After significantly contributing to the scheduled Fader VR story on the French election launched by Euronews and Vragments last month, he decided that the VR/360 platform our consortium is trying to build should also play a part in his next project. So he took a collection of Euronews 360 footage on the effects of climate change in Europe — and turned it into a Fader story. Because “it just made sense.”

Fulfilling the DNI consortium’s mission to create a Fader story that uses special maps, templates, and new interactive features, our colleagues at Euronews and Vragments have just produced a VR reaction video recap of the French elections – and it’s quite exciting to watch.
