Figured it out! This ties back to my question from yesterday
Since you can't nest arrays within arrays, I needed to wrap things with an extra layer to get the "page builder" effect I was looking for.

First, I created this schema which has the types I want to allow in my page builder
export default {
	name: 'clusterItems',
	type: 'array',
	title: 'Cluster Items',
	of: [
			type: 'image'
			type: 'video'
			type: 'textContent'

Then I created this schema which I use in the actual editor

export default {
	name: 'cluster',
	type: 'object',
	title: 'Cluster',
	fields: [
			name: 'items',
			type: 'clusterItems',
			title: 'Items'
