Drop a reflection

Hi,
I am looking for how to create a reflection as if something is lit. See picture. I need to have text standing in the same way on a wall and lit from above. "Drop shadow" doesn't reflect the way I want, and I can't figure out what would be smart to do. Do I need to go to Photoshop maybe? Does anyone know?
Thanks!

That's it! Tried it out now, but would you like to share the steps you did inside the 3d and Material palette? I can't seem to figure it out ... (I have the object I want to reflect ready as outlined flat text). Thank you 🙂

What's really tricky is rotating the object in 3D space. I would start from a flat view.
