As I dive deeper into 3D typographic modeling and animation (for my title design work), I am continuously experimenting (and what fun it is). Here's a rather interesting new test I just created in Cinema 4D that shows the destructive effect wind has on all the faces (front, back and sides) of some 3D type - the surfaces of the letterforms quickly separate and become indecipherable, abstract ribbons, floating in the air, wrapping around each other. This is exploratory work for some titles I'm doing for a friend - the very talented cinematographer/director Rollo Hollins. Below is the fully rendered animation. Kinda reminds me of when the Millennium Falcon was floating away into space from the Star Destroyer, unnoticed, with all the metallic junk!  Stay tuned for more experiments.
