Walking the world

As mobile phones and video cameras get cheaper and more ubiquitous, it’s becoming easier for people all over the world to tell their stories. Think about recent events in Haiti, Iran and China.

This trend was part of the inspiration for a recent CNN iReport assignment called “A Walk in Our Shoes,” in which CNN.com asked its readers to film one-minute videos of their favorite places to walk.

We received more than 470 submissions, from six continents. And that doesn't include one late submission from Antarctica, which is definitely worth a look.


CNN stitched many of those videos into a collective walk around the world.

Check out that video here:

 

The project follows in the footsteps of many other online collaborative art projects, like the Eternal Moonwalk, “Star Wars" Uncut and inbflat.net.

 

And it’s not finished just yet.

 

All of the videos submitted as part of “A Walk in Our Shoes” are available for download, and CNN is asking people to edit their own mashups. Never been to Africa? You could click on the “walk_africa” tag and find all of the submissions from that continent, including a stroll through central Madagascar and a bus stop in Swaziland.


Download the ones you like, edit your own walk, and then submit it to this iReport page.

Here are some of our favorite tags you could play with:

Walk with a friend (walk_4_feet)
Walk with a narrator (walk_walkie_talkie)
Walk with a purpose (walk_advocate)
Walk a bridge (walk_bridges)
Walk in Converse shoes (walk_chucks)
Walk without shoes (walk_barefoot)
Walk a mountain (walk_mountains)
Walk on a beach (walk_beaches)
Walk with a shadow (walk_shadow)
Walk past a famous landmark (walk_landmarks)
Ride a bike or ski down a hill (walk_alt_mode)
Take a religious walk (walk_churches)
Take a stroll through the burbs (walk_suburb)
Hike a trail (walk_trails)
Check out some cool plants (walk_flora)
Or beware of animals (walk_fauna)
Walk in the snow (walk_snow)
Walk through Asia (walk_asia)
Walk through Africa (walk_africa)
Walk through North America (walk_north_america)
Walk through South America (walk_south_america)
Walk through Australia (walk_australia)
Walk through Europe (walk_europe)

Also, we're sharing all of the data we collected about these walks on this public Google Doc. Some useful tidbits from the spreadsheet that could help you with editing: We asked people to use one word to describe their walks; what the temperature was; what time the video was filmed; and exactly where they were shot.

Let us know if you have questions about the project. Thanks so much for participating, and happy editing!

 

With love,

Tyson, John, Curt, Lila, Karyn and Kelly

This is just fabulous. It's wonderful seeing so many contributions and all of the different places around the globe that are special to ireporters.

 

Plus it is just a little thrilling to see a few seconds of mine in the final mash-up. In the words of my teenage son, "Holy, holy, that's mad!"

 

Great job team!
