I think a video is a great idea!! If you can submit the video with a copy of your resume that would help you. This way you don't have to talk about everything that is on you resume. A good idea may be to use the video as your "cover letter."
In the video, introduce yourself and explain your interests and passions. You can briefly talk about your past work history but also reference your resume so that they have a hard copy to look more in-depth at.
I hope that helps. That is very innovative!
