Cant tell if the footage is shot already from your posst. If it is not already shot, then you can do it several ways.

The best would be to get a pro recorder, copy the Cd and then use it as a playback device. I feed the out of the recorder to the camera, as a reference for each shot, and this way while you are recording, the talent is lip syncing to the music. Then in post, just replace the camera sound track with the music.

If you want to go high tech, you can get the recorder to feed timecode to the slate, slate each shot, and use 1 of the outs of the recorder to feed the audio to the camera at the same time. I just did this and it works really good, no problem syncing.Roll the camera first then start the recorder, the camera will record the slate/timecode of the audio. It took alot of practice to do this, and I ended up purchasing both the slate and sound devices recorder 744T. Very expensive, but I wanted the equipment for other projects anyway.

As far as the timeline goes, set it up for easy setup, 720P and set up the seq. as a 24fps seq. Edit as usual, export with compressor and voila..
