The toughest thing about those two examples is pulling a good-looking chroma key. No foolin': an HDV camera won't cut the mustard here. Use one at your peril.
The rest of the background can be accomplished in Illustrator or Photoshop, using a different layer for each graphic element you want to animate.

Once you have one done, you've got your own template, so to speak; you simply duplicate a comp, and substitute video and text.
