you will be dependent on your best high ISO since you will need faster shutter speeds than the videographer and VR,

Could you explain what you mean here. Faster shutter speeds than the videographer?

Easy.  Video is recorded at 24-30 frames per second.  Shutter speed on video cameras typically ranges from around 1/30-1/60 sec.  They don't care what a single frame looks like, as long as the action is smooth.  Ever notice when pausing a video, anything moving looks blurry?  But once you play it again, it looks fine.

This will not fly with photography as in most cases movement in the frame is undesirable.

So the video lights likely be setup for a slower shutter speed than you need.  As a result, you will have to compensate.
