"Every newsroom should experiment with Fader. It's the gateway drug for VR storytelling.“
Jeff Jarvis – BuzzMachine blogger and j-school prof; author of Public Parts, What Would Google Do?
“Thanks to Fader, euronews can easily put together and distribute interactive VR experiences across devices and languages. We've shot and published over a hundred 360 videos and now, thanks to Vragments' web-based editor, we can get to the next level of immersive storytelling.“
Thomas Seymat - Immersive storytelling & #VR @euronews. @Journalism_360 ambassador
What Vragments has done for traditional pen and notepad reporters is unlock the door to immersive 360 journalism. Now all they have to do is turn the knob and walk through. For reporters convinced that their technical skills can't keep up with their vision for telling stories, Fader is the cure.
Trey Bundy - Reporter at The Center for Investigative Reporting
"The great thing about Fader is that everyone can create 360 content. Users won't get too distracted by technical challenges but can focus on telling sophisticated 360 stories."

How Fader works

Fader lets you do more with your pictures and videos. Within minutes you build your very own immersive 360 experience. Bye bye boring slideshows.

Fader is free to use and currently in beta. If you have any problems or ideas to make it better: Get in touch and drop us a line.

3 simple steps

You have a folder full of pics and videos? Great, just upload them into the system. You´d rather prefer playing around for a start? No worries: We have some demo footage to fiddle around with.

You can arrange your material in so-called scenes. Add as many as you like. Add text, sound, more images or interactive hotspots. And finally: Re-arrange your scenes so that everything looks splendid.

With a tip of your finger you unlock your story. You are now free to embed or praise your piece of art. Still feeling shy about it all? Just keep your story private and enjoy it all by yourself.

Team

Fader is produced by Berlin-based startup Vragments with love and precision. We are programmers, journalists and storytellers. We have built VR projects in collaboration with The Center for Investigative Reporting and public broadcasters like Deutschlandfunk Kultur and rbb.

Fader is currently in beta and is co-funded by Google’s Digital News Initiative. It has been tested and approved by news organizations, universities and people with stories to tell.
