You need some kind of stabilization better than a "crappy tripod." I'd try and get a slider of some sort, since they can add a lot of professionalism to the look of a video. Your lenses should be fine, but lenses that are optimized for video will be much easier to shoot with (even the cheap Samyang/Bower/Rokinon 14mm/24mm/35mm/85mm).
Sanj is right, you need some type of monitoring outside of the LCD screen on the camera. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people "think they got it" but then they pull it up on the computer and it looks horrible. Some type of monitor/EVF, especially one with zebra stripes/peaking will help alot.
I'd also say you need some ND filters, since you'll probably be shooting during the day. With the shutter speed fixed at 1/50 even with the ISO at 100 you may have to stop down to f/16 to get proper exposure, so ND filters will help if you need shallow DOF during the day.
A glidecam will help if you're trying to get moving shots, but if you don't have any experience with them you'll end up spending 1/2 the day trying to get it balanced.
I would honestly try and plan as much as possible in advance, there is no such thing as too much pre-planning with video. If you go out there and try to wing it things aren't going to turn out well. I shoot video with DSLR's all the time, and while I know how to shoot pictures pretty darn well I still wouldn't feel comfortable taking on a photo gig. You have the gear, but experience is definitely more important. Either way, best of luck.
