Fireworks video with KP

I have tried fireworks video before with this camera but it was a bit disappointing. The spot I have to set up is a distance from the show, requiring a long lens- in this case, a 100 macro + 1.4x. Settings manual focus, 24P, and Rode mic. The problem is the WB. The first time I tried this, as each firework burst the camera would take a period of time to adjust the exposure (manual setting, 1/50 shutter). Is there a way to turn off the WB? I can't seem to find one.

Take a look at the manual:

Pick something OTHER than Auto White Balance or Multi White Balance - eg Daylight. Then it will skip the evaluation step.
Also, any lens correction settings or other automatic stuff will cause a delay.

I had it on daylight the first time and yes I have the manuals for my KPs, but it still evaluated. I will check out the lens correction settings.
