Hollinsworth Productions is excited to announce "The Last Case of August T. Harrison", a dark neo-noir thriller influenced by Val Lewton and H.P. Lovecraft; coming November 2015 to Digital HD, and at possible film festival screenings. Set in and around Venice Beach, California - August T. Harrison, private eye, comes out of retirement to solve what seems at first to be a bizarre missing persons case, but as he digs deeper, he finds him...self caught in the middle of a dark conspiracy involving the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Are Lovecraft's tales just fiction? Or do they hold the secrets of the cosmos?
Currently in production, the film stars Jerry Lacy (Dark Shadows, Play it Again Sam) as August T. Harrison, Maggie Wagner, David Graham, Lisa Blake Richards, Eric Gorlow, Max Landwirth, and Nathan Wilson as H.P. Lovecraft himself.

THE RISING LIGHT, the new film from Hollinsworth Productions, is quite unlike any other science fiction film. It's a road movie. It's an odyssey across fantastical realms and worlds. It's an alien drama that blends 50's sci-fi with existential themes, the exploration of an outsider, and a study of loss and failure. It's a tale of magic and sorcery. It's written and directed by Ansel Faraj, and it stars Nathan Wilson as Daniel - a lost stranger in a strange land; Kathryn Leigh Scott as the ethereal Aya, Daniel's "mother"; Linden Chiles as tragic magician Nikolas Winter; and Derek Mobraaten as Alex, a mysterious young man who helps Daniel along in his journey.
The film was screened as part of the Official Selection of the 2014 Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.
