This needs it's own topic.I certainly would like to have videos for several points in the game (beginning, end, elections, big battle won/lost, capitulation, victory celebrations in the capital, scenario introductions, ...)
I think we need to first decide what style we are going to use in the videos.
Imp1 videos had mostly still images. I think there was real photos and drawn pictures used both. This is easy to compose. If someone draws the pictures. I am not expert on the copyrights, but I think we can use some old photos?
Imp2 intro is slightly more advanced. It has pictures that are animated so it is more alive. I think Imp2 uses only drawn pictures and no photos. It also makes it more cartoon like. The animation is quite simple and I can do that. Again I would need help with the pictures, music and sounds.
Then I had idea for third option. We could maybe use actual film footage from some very old movies that are now free to use? Again I am not expert on the copyright issues. But I have vague memory that some older game used this style? Maybe Castles 2? Also Steel Panthers had old black and white film footage videos in it.
4th option. Make it in 3D. We would need a 3d artist. I am not fan of 3d movies, but we could maybe use some parts that are in 3d. Cannon fires a cannon ball? Swinging and shining swords or flags? The game logo? Maybe even a ship sailing in the ocean? Problem with 3d is that as time goes on it starts to look bad really fast compared to photos and pictures that don't have that problem.
