    The words "camera ARMS UP" in a script describes motion in the point of view less dramatic than Boom Up and Over.

    Example, from Firefly:

    Those who look carefully will spot the bellydancer's hand as
    it slips Mal a piece of paper, which he slips in turn into his pocket.
    JAYNE (to Mal)
    Your move.
    Camera ARMS UP to see the game on the table is Chinese Checkers. Mal moves.
