Scott is perhaps Dakota's oldest friend, having known him since second grade. The two wouldn't start making movies together until Dakota was cast in Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution in late 2013. Dakota portrayed Logan Shaw, and started filming the project in May 2014. Dakota was set to have roles in Bread's Crumbs and The Search for the Creepy Guy in the Woods, which were made in May and June, but he was unable to participate in either project due to scheduling issues. Dakota filmed Jurassic Shark III until October, portraying Logan Shaw and several masked InGen employees.
Dakota resumed filming Jurassic Shark III in January 2015, and would complete his scenes in October. In May, Dakota was cast as a hitman named Joe in the short film Dr. Troubleshoot. Since Jurassic Shark III hadn't been released up to this point, Dr. Troubleshoot served as Dakota's acting debut.
Dakota was expected to appear in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, although due to a lack of communcation between him and the other actors he never participated in the project. In August, Dakota officially joined the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe when he played bounty hunter Bjorn Alvarez in The Conundrum Dimension.
In November 2015, Dakota was cast in The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods alongside several other actors. The film was set to serve as his high school graduation project.
On May 1, Dakota was confirmed to return as Bjorn Alvarez in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam. He filmed his scenes in June, and the project was released that month. In July, he played a "worshipping gang member" in the short film Pizza No Come. From July to December 2016, Dakota filmed The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods, in which he played the main antagonist, a demon called Saathi. Dakota finished filming his scenes as Saathi in October.
In February 2017, Dakota was cast to play Dakota in Creepy Guy 4. After Russell Parkinson was unable to return for the film, a new role was created for Dakota, who filmed his scenes over the span of two days. The project was released several weeks later in March.
Dakota later played the ferocious Dogfather in Pizza Will Come, the Pizza No Come series' sixth chronological installment. Shortly before the film's release, he was confirmed to return as Bjorn Alvarez for a final time in Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption. Dakota was set to start filming in May, but never showed up to filming. He managed to film his scenes towards the end of July, due to an extension in the film's production.
On September 22, Dakota joined the cast of Ninjago: Age of the Golden Master, in which he voices Ford. He recorded his lines that day, and appears throughout the film.
