"Meskada" needs crew and extras, non-union actors

MESKADA is an independent feature film written and directed by Josh Sternfeld.

MESKADA tells the story of small-town detective, Noah Cordin, as he attempts to solve a juvenile homicide that occurred during a home burglary in his affluent town of Hilliard. The dead boy’s mother, Allison Connor, is a member of the Meskada County Board of Commissioners, and a powerful woman in Hilliard; and the entire township rallies together in solidarity - to support her and Detective Cordin’s efforts to find the killers. Throughout it all, Noah’s loyalties are torn between his past and his present…until the Connor murder investigation comes to a shocking climax.

MESKADA follows KNUCKLEHEAD as the second feature production for Aliquot Films, an NYC independent film fund and production company founded by Jay Kubassek.

MESKADA will be shooting in Catskill, NY and the surrounding area during the month of June.

The production is looking to hire local crew including:
Art Director

Grip & Electric 

Hair/Make-Up Assistants

Production Assistants


If you are interested in any of the above mentioned positions, please send resumes to Production Manager at meskada@gmail.com

If you’re interested in being a Background Actor, please send recent picture and contact info to meskadatalent@gmail.com. Unfortunately, since this is a low-budget film, we cannot afford to pay any of the Background Actors.
