Semi-good answer

I don't have the flash, so can't says for sure, in regard to nit-picks, but..

Yes, the modeling lights from a studio flash can be used to shoot video.

Check for a fan; if the unit makes noise, take this into account when setting up a mic.

Experiement with color balance.

If sound allows,closer is better than farther away.

I use a Dynalite flash with a non-fan head for some video work myself.
