Yeah I wish I could be there earlier too. 
I'd also include: 
-'we get your point' hand roll
- the difference between report backs, agenda items, announcements, and soapboxing
- the process for proposals, clarifying questions, concerns, consensus, blocks 
and yes- human mic / consensus / progressive stack

Something else that would help make the video comprehensive are the roles of the facilitators, though the facilitation committee seems to change this sometimes: facilitator / co-facilitator / time keeper / stack greeter / stack keeper / vibe checker

Maybe it sounds like much - but it helps put the hand signals into context.

Hey everyone

Nina and I are heading to MNN studio now to film a video to help
people understand the meaning of hand signals and process of GA. The
facilitator I had lined up to come narrate the video unfortunately may
not be able to make it. We can film the hand gestures, but am
wondering what else should we be shooting. Need to know by 10AM today.

We have:

Twinkle fingers for silent consent
Down fingers for disagree
Wavy fingers for unsure
Point of Process Triangle
Point of Information Index Finger
Stack pinky
Cross arm block

Anything else that we should address?

Human mic? Consensus? Progressive stack???
