Default Vehicle animation (Help with camera motion needed)

Hello. I am making a commercial for a shop of my friend's dad, which sells motorcycles, motor-scooters, motorboats and things like that. I've modeled a vehicle and animated it riding and jumping from the logo of the shop and the customer seems to be happy with it, but I have difficulties making the camera animation. The logo should be seen from the beginning but the vehicle should remain the main center of interest. The viewer should be able to tell apart where is the logo and where is the environment(unlike it is now) but the white color should remain too. I am trying to figure how to do this myself, but i could really use some help, so please, advise me. I would be very grateful for any suggestion what and how i could do about the camera motion or anything else that you think needs corrections.

Criticism is not just welcome here, it is needed.

P.S. English is not my native language, so forgive me if you find mistakes.

I really need some help, so I am really sorry you can't see it. Please try downloading this one (XviD codec this time)

And if you experience problems with codecs, i could recommend you K-Lite Mega Codec Pack from www.free-codecs.com . I use it and it seems to work always.
