This sounds great - happy to help in really any way!
Intelligent Television - a NY prodco - has shot some original hi-def video for Wikipedia - footage in the classroom of linear algebra taught to camera by Gil Strang at MIT last year; footage of Richard Stallman this year explaining F/LOSS direct to camera - and edited video and WP articles together with MIT Open Courseware and WP's SJ Klein to illustrate some of Newton's principles of physics as taught by popular MIT prof Walter Lewin. Also to advance some of the rights clearance, citation, & attribution best practices for video and free/open video now emerging.
See also the advances - slow & chelonian as they may be - of the new UK-gov't-funded citations working group described by the British Library yesterday at the bottom of this message.
There's a Ford-Foundation-supported resource called Video for Wikipedia and the Open Web: A Guide to Best Practices for Cultural and Educational Institutions online under "Advanced GLAM Projects" at:
Some of the physics video from MIT is now in WP with citations and links back here:
Some of the Stallman video is online waiting for its WP closeup here:
Hopefully reincarnation is more than a theory and we will have a next life in which to see more progress in this field. If not though we should hurry and get more done.

<<Audiovisual Citation: Guidelines for referencing sound and moving image resources
Despite the exponential increase in the use of audiovisual material in teaching, learning and research in higher and further education, existing guidelines for the referencing of sound and moving image are insufficient as they are based on standards developed for the written word. This has the effect of discouraging the citing of sound and moving image, as well as creating barriers in its discovery, use and re-use.
In 2011, the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) established a citation working group comprised of academics, researchers, journal editors, archivists and representatives from the British Library to address this key issue. Since 2012 this ground-breaking work has been incorporated into the BUFVC Shared Services Project, funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
The guidelines will cover: film, television programmes, radio programmes, audio recordings, DVD extras including interviews and commentaries, clips, trailers, adverts, idents, stings, non-broadcast material (catalogued and not catalogued), podcasts, vodcasts and DVD study materials.
The guidelines have been shaped by the diversity of sound andmoving image materials requiring citation and will be open to future updates to ensure they effectivelyrespond to advances in technology, development of new media platforms and the needs of the user.
The citation standards will be robustly tested prior to publication and will beapplicable to a wide range of different users across all disciplines.
The citation guidelines for sound and moving imagewill be published in March 2013 and reviewed periodically.

". . . there is not yet a uniform set of citation standards in education for quoting and referencing either moving images or recorded sound. For academics to gain greater confidence in the use of moving image and sound content in research and publication, they will require the standardisation of citation and the assurance that collections will hold material and sustain collections on the same basis as print material."

Subject: [Wikivideo-l] Wiki Makes Video project
Thought I'd let you know about this proposal for a Wikipedia-oriented video project, and welcome your feedback and comments there at the bottom of the page.
More details about the particulars of the video efforts so far, undertaken by my two students:
