May I suggest that you just get the unit repaired someplace?  Even if the video cannot be salvaged, the drive can be put into an external enclosure.  If you have another Mac at your disposal, just mount its drive.  (And if you don't, same deal.  Filesystem support for the usual Mac filesystem is easily found.)

Macs can be disassembled using a Torx wrench, but, to be quite honest, it might be cheaper and faster in the long run to pay someone to get the drive out who knows how to do it in a matter of minutes, having done it many times on-the-job.  External enclosures of the appropriate size are much < $100.
