Birth Control was a 2nd year York University student film project by Paul Nguyen. Principal photography for Birth Control was completed during March 2004.

Paul Nguyen also served as an actor and fight choreographer. Birth Control also marks the return of Paul Nguyen and Mark Simms' childhood friend, stunt actor Sophy Kong.
