Don't use auto focus. If you are shooting a scene with a known depth of field. Disable AF and use a fixed aperture sufficiently small to make the entire scene within the selected DOF. You might need to use lights if you need a small aperture.

Yep, autofocus on video is a pain.  Better to just focus once, then switch to manual and leave it there.  Especially if you're doing review videos, the camera won't need AF anyway.
