One simple way :

1. Calculate a point in behind of the object using the object''s front direction vector
2. Rotate it around the x axis of the object to gain viewing height.
3. Rotate it around the z axis of the object to have different viewing angle.
4. Calculate a view matrix from the viewing point to the object position
