Your customer isn't looking for a taxidermist. He's looking for the movie guys who work those Magic Light & Electric shows. They are ROBOTICS and nothing to do with actual animal capes and mannikens. I fear he has an alligator imagination and a hummingbird wallet because these things cost into the tens of thousands of dollars. Buy him a Tink's 69 video and tell him he's got the choice of cheap computer graphics animation or he can mortgage his yacht and you'll contact those guys in Hollywood.
Seriously! I just watched an episode of "Wild Ot The Set" on The Animal Planet Network that showed some stuff. I think going to the website for the Network that carries this show would be a good place to start. I am sure there must be schools for this.
try disney world they do a lot of that stuff..
