Trivia

With a limited budget, the director Travis Milloy built the set himself using the most inexpensive materials he could find. To create futuristic walls in the prison cell he used plastic crates that are used to carry 2-liter soda pop bottles which he found next to dumpsters behind grocery stores. Not realizing the crates were re-used by the bottling company, unknowingly having stolen them, after the film was completed he returned the crates to the grocery stores where he found them.
What is considered to be an aerial shot in the desert is actually an over-cranked handheld shot with director, Travis Milloy standing through the sunroof of a car with producer Laurie Sheldon behind the wheel.

The prop/camera used for Howard, the AI system that monitors the cell was an old security camera that was found at a salvage yard. It was purchased for $15, modified and painted. All of Howard's movements were done by hand off camera, no mechanics or CGI were used to animate Howard.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Actors Christopher Soren Kelly and Cajardo Lindsey share scenes in which they talk to one another through a vent in the prison wall. The scenes were shot a year apart, in separate locations. The two actors never met.
To help convey the notion that Frank is reliving the same moments over and over, music composer Jacob Yoffee created multiple versions of the same section of classical music. Bach's Passacaglia in C minor was performed by piano, on guitar, saxophone and as a jazz band. The music is hidden as source music throughout the movie, within the opening scene, the prison cell, the coffee shop, the gas station and incorporated into the finale with a full orchestra version. The instrumental variations disguise the fact that it is the same music repeated.
Actor Jesse D Arrow, who provides the voice for the computer, Howard also appears in the movie as a patron in the coffee shop. At one point in the story, Frank asks Howard for coffee and to play some music, while Jesse is revealed in the coffee shop getting coffee and listening to music on headphones.

Fans have debated multiple conclusions with the ending of the movie. One conclusion is that Frank escaped from the prison, finding his way back to a world that has changed, that a revolution had occurred to an oppressive government and he meets the real Gabby. The presence of "Howard" seen in the coffee shop in the final shot is merely an old security camera left behind that is no longer working, a reminder of the old regime.

Another conclusion is that Frank never escaped, that he is still in the prison and the device has only convinced him of his escape (as it did earlier) in order to find the location of the computer flash drive which he reveals when he removes it from it's hiding place in the coffee shop. The biggest evidence of this theory is Howard's presence in the final shot and that the government facility he escapes is the same in the first escape attempt, which was generated in Frank's mind by the computer.

Another theory is that Frank is the old man seen in the flashback images in a coma-like state, kept alive by a machine and the entire story is one that takes place in his mind while searching for a way to become disconnected from the machine that has forced him to remain alive, which is a similar premise to Frank and Howard's situation, the dependency and separation between man and machine.

The old man who rescues Frank in the mountains at the end of the film has a hat with "150" written on it. This looks a lot like "LSO" - Life Support Operator, perhaps a subtle clue that Frank has not escaped the machine.
