Something like that, but what I'd try is the flash in one hand and camera in the other. Atleast that's what I saw and seemed very cool
The flash pictured is a 60 series Metz flash.

Although the battery pack is large and heavy, it allows Metz to move a lot of the heavy stuff out of the flash head, which as a result is large and fairly light - light enough to handle quite easily, while putting out lots of light.

I used to use one while shooting weddings - powerful, fast, flexible and capable of doing an entire wedding on a single charge.

The bounce card pictured will work on the Metz 45 series flashes as well. They are fairly powerful as well, and don't require a separate power pack, but are heavier in the head.
