What do we call these types of animation, in case i wanna search tutorials to do the same, cause i didn't get the concept of these animations, is it by building the whole set and moving the camera around or by any other way, cause i have a project that need this style of animation..
It might be silly but i really couldn't find some tutorials on this, i wish some one can help..

Hi hemagego, welcome. The first example is mainly using 'Shape Layers' and 'Shape Paths' - using trimming, scaling etc. They may also have used graphics created in a program like Illustrator.The second example is more in the style of 'Kinetic Typography', if you google there are quite a few tutorials that should get you started. However before you start you should have a good understanding of the basics of After Effects - here's a good starting point for that if you need it:

You can build it all and then move a camera around (the Sure Target preset might be of use to you http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/presets_and_more/ and http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/sure_target_2/ , or you can build it all and then parent every layer to a null and move the null around.
