This is a simple effect seen regularly on tv, but I have not been able to do it. I would like to take a letter (or word) where the front face of the letter moves toward the camera and creates this large extrusion; then the back face of the letter moves towards the camera collapsing most of the extrusion.

If I understand you correctly it should work with morph's.
1. make you're text object and extrude it a little.
2. make morph and move the front faces forward as much as you want.
3. make a new morph and apply morph 1 (the first morph you did a moment ago) to it and move the back faces forward to the front faces.

Now it's just to animate it in layout with morphmixer. I hope this helps.
