-The opening living room still photos were all shot in under 4 hours in the New Westminster, BC area.
-"Code 5's" final scene, which would have shed light on it's ending, was never shot due to location complications.
-Producer Attila performed the audio breathing for Arpad Balogh during the ADR session, due to the fact Arpad had left the country to travel.
-Executive Producer / Lead Actor Sven Soukup, was hit with a 1k light during the filming of some of the hallway sequence, resulting in a cut across the nose. Fortunately, the make-up department leaves little to the viewing of this fact on screen.
-The name "McAdams" was chosen because Rachel McAdams is Executive Producer / Writer, Sven Soukups favorite actress.
-Actor Sheldon Trosko, went through two security guard shirts in the hallway fight sequence due to prop blood covering the original. The security patches were ripped off the original, and duck taped from under neither to the 2nd shirt to make up some of the shots you see in the final version of the film.
-"Code 5" was written and produced after Executive Producer / Writer Sven Soukup, was rejected for a role on a S.W.A.T. team for a commercial being shot in Vancouver, BC.
-All the opening living room still photos were taken on actor Arpad Balogh's final day in Vancouver, prior his leaving to L.A.

-"Code 5's" original plans for a director included Ingrid Torrance, who had to turn down the offer for personal reasons.
-An entire "cable-cam" rig was built for a shot, but never ended up being used. The concept of the shot was to film high over head, zipping through trees, in the opening chase sequence. Unfortunately, the production ran out of time to complete the shot.
