About Us: Testimonials


Rewind to 2018: Dara, an aspiring MMA fighter, had just sustained a serious injury during a fight. Forced to put his Muay Thai training on hold but unwilling to back away from the sport, he knew he needed to find a new outlet. And then it hit him: He’d always loved film and there weren’t many people producing MMA video content. And so Devolution Productions was born.

Today, Devolution works with companies of all shapes, sizes, and specializations to create captivating marketing campaigns that tell a story. Because whether you’re a fledgling company or an established organization, your vision deserves to be shared. 



Creative Director and Founder

Dara is a creative director with a passion for narrative filmmaking whose work has appeared in multiple international film festivals. As the driving force behind Devolution, Dara aims to make a difference by making captivating videos and creating jobs. 

Dara has a background in political science and film and experience with podcast hosting, sales,  and management. With a knack for problem-solving and human connection, Dara is a natural storyteller who likes filming just as much as the relationships it creates. 

When he’s not directing or training Muay Thai, Dara can be found exploring Toronto’s west end with his partner Nika and their dog Gorgi.
