Not sure what model camera you have but I found my Canon HF M40 seems to work best when I use the 'Fireworks' setting.  I experimented with several exposure settings and some came close but none as good as the Fireworks setting.  I would also suggest turning autofocus off. 


As for audio, I used one of those MP3 players that has an FM receiver built in and connected the headphone output to the line input of my camera.  Seemed to work quite well.
