Could be either...

What do you want your ribbons to do ? Just float about like that, or do they have to form a logo at the end ?

You'll be surprised at how easy it is to make that. In C4D, make planes that would be your ribbons. Create splines you want the ribbons to follow, then use a Spline Wrap Deformer. Either group your "ribbons" and the deformer, or make the deformer a child of a ribbon. I recommend setting the Mode to Keep Length, then just animate the Offset slider and you're on your way.


Here's a quick example.

I forgot to mention, as you will see in my scene file, make sure to add plenty of subdivisions so you get smooth bends as you go. In that file, I think I also added some displacement using the animated water texture for added effect.
