Focus Pulling while the character is walking (1 reply)

I am really struggling while pulling the focus while the character is continuously walking. What can you suggest to pull sharp focus while the character is continuously moving at different speeds all the time? Since it's night so I have to keep the aperture below 4 and due to budget constraints cannot effort huge lighting rigs.

I rarely shoot deeper than a 2.4 on a night shoot. On Thursday I was at a 2.0 and shooting a character walking towards a camera that was tracking back on an Aerocrane arm. On a 47mm lens there is no alternative to working with a great focus puller.
