I shot a music video (a continues 3 minute clip) of a singer lip synching their song to camera and can't synch up the audio. I shot the clip at 18fps and am editing in a 18fps sequence in Premiere Pro. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

That's what I was afraid of. How did the film get transferred to video? What is the actual frame rate now?
More importantly, how is this going to be used? How will people see it?
Another important consideration: make sure the audio file's sample rate matches the edit timeline's sample rate; typically it's 48 kHz, and not 44.1 kHz.
Finally, I looked up the information on that camera. Since it's a consumer-grade camera, there is no way to know if it's running precisely at 18 fps -- professional film cameras of that period relied on crystal sync to keep frame rates accurate and consistent with second-system audio. Your camera doesn't have that capability. It could very well be that it is the source of your woes.
