In the first part I see entire tree tops being moved, pulled, caught on the spacecraft and moved to the right. How do they get that effect?
They are all done by me, and fake. I use Digital Fusion, Acad, Adobe AE, Sony Vegas, Lightwave 3D, Visual FX lab and 3DMax

It would be interesting to see higher quality images. I'm not convinced about the CGI thingh, though. If it is, it's high budget. Look at it again and again. The trees are all different. The way the light falls on them and changes as the object changes direction (first part of the clip) is impressive. Highly detailed. Around the time of the lightning, if you look at the trees, they look identical at first glance, but are actually quite different. The bottom branch comes out at the same place and goes in the same direction. Yet they are not copies.
Branches grow in a specific direction because of sunglight. This is a detail which would escape almost any CGI artist.
If it's CGI, it's amazing.
As for the last clip, it says that it's from 1968, then a film version should exist. If we were able to see that, then we'd know better as film is much more difficult to hoax than digital.
