When you want something done, ask a busy person.

I used the OSM diary entry to do Public Transport. Might work for you .
People can make comments under it .. and you can edit the first entry
you made to correct errors and make changes.
Videos are like lessons... you need to be very well prepared to present
them. Written stuff you can do fairly easily and review later. A
presentation (video/lesson) should be correct the first time around. For
preference .. I'd write it .. much less stress.
