We are honored to officially welcome our newest Ambassadors (and long-time supporters) to the Kids In The Spotlight family! KITS Ambassadors hold a special place as champions within the industry committed to the youth we serve and the power of filmmaking to help them tell their stories, their way.

George Lako

As a long time KITS supporter and friend, George brings a wealth of experience as a Producer and Actor appearing in shows such as Days of Our Lives, Code Black, Girl Boss, The Colony, and New Girl.

His company, Alpha Wolves TV, with fellow Ambassador David Mahmoudieh, has produced projects for Porsche, Mercedes, and Google. However, he considers his most fulfilling role as a Producer for KITS films Bully, Parallel, Kurupted, and Death’s Possessions.

Jon Lindstrom

Jon has brought the full weight of his experience and talent as a 3-time Emmy Award nominee to Kids In The Spotlight as Director of KITS films A Majestic Wish and Karma’s a B….

Jon has been seen in studio movies,
independent films and literally thousands of
hours of TV. He co-starred in multiple
projects in 2021 including the horror
feature, A Dark Foe, with Selma Blair and

Detective. In 2022-23 he’ll be seen in the
thriller, Diary of a Spy, the surrealistic drama, Ten-Cent Daisy, a police drama with Nick Stahl, Kate Bosworth and Mel Gibson, and a highly anticipated project from producer Ridley Scott.

Cady McClain

Cady truly represents the spirit and mission of Kids In The Spotlight! Her dedication to supporting the development of our youth is reflected in her role as Director of several KITS films – Burnt Feathers, Broken Wings (Winner, Best Social Justice Film, at Santa Fe Film Festival, Winner, Best Short Documentary, at Mystic Film Festival), The Last Day, and The Missing Piece.

Cady began her acting career at the age of 9, and is a three-time Emmy winning actress, producer, and director starring in films like My Favorite Year, Pennies From

Kara Saun

A true Fashion Fairy Godmother for our youth! German-born Celebrity Fashion and Costume Designer Kara Saun has graced KITS with her creative genius as Costume Coordinator for our youth on set for films (Trapped Within, The Angel of St. Catherine’s Academy, Little Orphan Hermione) as well as for their big night, the KITS Film Awards!

When she’s not styling our youth, she is the
magic behind the wickedly whimsical
costumes of The Disney Channel’s
Descendants (1-3). Other notable
Costume Design projects include Zapped, starring Zendaya, The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration, America’s Best Dance Crew, What I Like About You, Eve and 10 Comedy Central Roasts.
