You can produce an animation video to promote a Wikimedia project and promote it by using ads on Twitter. You can promote an online campaign, such as Wiki Loves Monuments, by producing an interview video and promoting it on Facebook, Twitter, etc., using ads.

The project wikigraphic's is going to focus on documentary about wildlife, parks, monument, historical sites which has articles on wikipedia but with no video or documentary on wikipedia and it's sister project. The video or documentary added to each articles would be important because people learn through visualization and there would be open spaces cinema's for the project for people to learn about wikipedia article and other sister project and the new documentary program as well as school.
