Here's a 15 second spot that I just finished up. Feedback appreciated.

I like it. Very clever. I just wish we could get a little more reaction out of the cow. Even a startled Mooo! would sufice I suppose. She/he just seems very unworried for a cow getting abducted by a giant flying logo!

Perhaps the cow is unphased because its already floating in space. A hint of an environment might help... twilight on the horizon, the silhouette of a barn, a bucket...
Very cool, though. Less is sometimes more, ya know.

Yes, that's an excellent idea. Personally I would go with the hinted-ground-plane look, just the shadow of the cow which draws out the floor as the cow moves.

uugh. Just watched it again. You do have the shadow. So disregard my last comment.

looks like the neck is straching quite a bit, sholders is not moving at all?

my question is how did you do that blue-ish magnetic like wave thing

My guess is by adding envelopes to the various settings of a volumetric light.

That's exactly how it was done. Check out the IFW Textures plug-ins. They give you a great starting point for textures and volumetrics.
