Scarab Digital is a boutique content creation and post-production service company specializing in practical and post Fantasy User Interface (FUI) design on many major Hollywood Television Studio Series and Motion Pictures including Fifty Shades of Grey, Twilight Saga, The Predator, ABC’s Siren, Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, and CW’s The Flash, Arrow, DC Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman.

We’ve built everything from interactive spaceship HUDs (Heads Up Displays), alien medical scanners to NASA Mission Control and practical interactive phones with custom content triggered remotely.We’ve unfolded script storylines dynamically and clearly thousands of times – live, in front of the actors – so that they can look, see, touch, feel and interact with these interfaces in the studio film set in real-time.

Successful candidates will have opportunity to work alongside industry professionals in this field while learning the craft. By nature, our client’s scripts are unique and have their own excitement, so by consequence, we challenge ourselves with every project we design to be more dynamic than the next.

Join our team and be a part of shaping the next big idea. Your design may just influence the next future tech for the world to see, whether it’s designing Jarvis in Iron Man’s suit, powering the Endurance to reach Jupiter, or saving the planet from Predators.

With every project we work on, we pride ourselves in helping our clients achieve their creative vision with our exceptional artistry, service, flexibility and solid commitment to quality.
