Video is much more potentially editable than

a 5 minute mini-documentary on [[Hurricane Katrina]], slide-show

article and images taken from commons to match the narration. There
is a *lot* of potential for cooperative editing there, basically as
much or more than the text of a Wikipedia article.
The idea is probably ahead of its time, though, because AFAIK there
aren't any free (even as in beer) software tools to make such video
editing easy, let alone collaborative.
"Non-linear video editing software" - not a single Windows program on
the list. Haven't tried any of them. Are any of them "easy" besides
the requirement to install linux?
(Looking again, Jahshaka is listed as cross-platform. I'll try
downloading it and using it.)
Actually the main problem with you scenario would be
trying to meet
the different license requirements of the images.
Both the CC licenses and the GFDL allow aggregate works. If CC images
are allowed in a GFDL encyclopedia, I see no reason they wouldn't be
allowed in a GFDL documentary.
