    I'm not sure what you are saying. If the source is from a video camera then I would expect nice results. Perhaps posting a frame will help us understand the issue. Perhaps you need to deinterlace the video.

    See my iMovie Export Guide for possible help.

    I think the static is caused by bad lighting. The bright background is causing the metering to be thrown off. In fact I think some light from a source behind you is scattering onto the camera lens too.

    I'm not sure what the audio problem is. It didn't sound like the sound of a hard drive, so I suspect a remote source, maybe an air conditioner or fridge. Trying changing rooms and close the door. These mics can pick up a lot.

    YouTube has some tips including lighting. I'm sure you can find more from general users and via Google.
