If you have a project you think we can help with, please contact Scott Virtes by email, or call 760-644-8885 to schedule an appointment. While SCV Systems has had an office with up to 7 employees, I prefer to work alone these days. Check out my web/software resume or my film resume if you'd like to know more.

I'm not looking for software development work at this time.


Services offered: design, scanning, image conversions. Paint Shop Pro guru. I've contributed graphics to just about every web page and piece of software mentioned on this page. Plus, I have had over 100 illustrations pubilshed over the years. I was book cover designed for samsDotPublishing for a few years. For a gallery of Scott's graphics, check this out.


I have a lot of fun producing sound FX, from CD-audio quality down to the smallest 11KHz chirp. I have budget equipment, but an ear for quality. With digital sound processing and noise reduction tools, I will always provide clean sounds. I can also provide music scores, from classical to rock & techno; MOD, MIDI, WAV, MP3.

Sound/music is definitely a part-time pursuit for me, but I do have archives which may have what you need, and I will consider new projects. Past projects:

  • Left Behind: Tribulation Force (DVD), Left Behind Games, 2005-7
  • AlphaDrive 003, (Web) scv systems 4/99 (all sound f/x and music)

  • I contributed sound f/x to most of the game titles listed above
  • Intro musical themes for: Nemesis, Splatt
For sound f/x work associated with film projects, see the next section.


I have done a variety of film projects in the past 3 years. My film resume is here.


One last note. I'm also a sci-fi, fantasy, horror author with over 500 pieces published since 1986. My works have appeared in Nature, Analog, Space & Time, Planet, and elsewhere. Visit my writings page for tons of listings, free stuff to read & more.
