Bret Victor is a good example of a communicator that is excellent at distillation, e.g. his posts Media for Thinking the Unthinkable and Learnable Programming. I think his works score very high on the accessibility factor (see the RAIN framework).

If we can make authoring of explorable explanations (examples, description) more effective, I think that would be a better approach than video and images.
