This is fine.  Note that * does not usually match dotfiles, so you
should make sure to also 'svn mv Projectname/.foo .foo' for every
dotfile in Projectname/.

There are other ways but in this case there's no need for them.
(They're more useful in the opposite case, when one wants to switch from
a ^/<files> structure to a ^/trunk/<files> structure; or if there were
branches of /Projectname/trunk/Projectname around.)

Assuming the second 'mv' was meant to be a 'cd', that's equivalent.
