"A.C.E." is listed after cinematographer David Boyd's name in the opening credits. This stands for American Cinema Editors, of which he is not a member (he also isn't even a film editor). The correct letters to use would have been "A.S.C." for American Society of Cinematographers, of which he is a member.
