In 1993, the UFC was born in an 8-sided cradle of combat, and promoters, TV producers, and Hollywood set designers still dispute who is the Octagon’s true creator.


Hearty and Wallace is a small-scale post-production house specializing in the direction and creation of motion graphics and VFX for film and television. We also handle camera-work, modelling, VR, new immersive technologies, editing, and colour grading for commercial work and small creative projects. Larger endeavours are often co-produced with Victory Social Club, a group of creatives based in Toronto. We have 20+ years of experience in the film and television business, and have worked with museums, non-profits, artists, independent film-makers, major motion pictures and television productions.
