Manual or auto focus when filming?

I am going to be shooting people in the videos I'm doing, and after watching a couple of videos on YouTube, it is spoken of getting the focus with auto, half pressing shutter to lock it down, and then switching to manual so it doesn't move during filming.

Basically I want to lock focus on the subject, so I can then focus on the movements composition etc. Is this what people generally do? Thanks
