Looking for some good dslr video tutorial

I recently got my d7000 and have shot some video with it. The first thing that I noticed is that autofocus isn't very helpful and is rather disturbing when watching parts where the camera decided that it needed to refocus. None of the video I shot turned out that well so I am looking for help. Are there any good tutorials on shooting video with a d7000?

Some of my questions:

1) is there any way to use autofocus effectively with moving subjects? Am I stuck using hyperfocal distance or manually focusing trying to gauge focus based on the lcd?
2) what about exposure and white balance?
3) do I need to use specific shutter speeds?

On a positive note I did notice that the one video I shot at 6400 iso looked very good.
