How to pull focus on old 16mm cine lenses?

So I'm trying to wrestle my DoP into using a BMPCC with adapter and 16mm cine lenses for our next short, because I HATE the DSLR image. Also not too big of a fan of Canon EF lenses. I just love the look of the BMPCC and those old lenses. But my DoP is justifiedly complaining that they're horrible to pull focus on. Any of you used that setup yet and built a rig for it or any advice? Thanks a million!
