UPDATE: Mac Demarco’s reps say that his involvement in the movie is far less involved than the social pages for Dark Prism imply. Per their statement:
A few kids came over to Mac’s house awhile ago and asked him to play the mandolin and do some voice overs for their horror film. He obliged as they were friends of a friend and that’s the only participation he did in this film. He didn’t star in it and it definitely isn’t his feature film debut.
After amassing a catalogue of songs that depict him as a freewheeling folk-rock stoner of his own design, Canadian songwriter Mac DeMarco is now taking to the world of film to continue character building in Dark Prism. This is DeMarco’s debut role in a feature film. According to the film’s Facebook page the movie centers around the stories of several women who are fighting their own metaphysical battles:
DISCK PICTURES is proud to announce that MAC DEMARCO is one of the many talented members of the cast of our new feature film DARK PRISM. This will be his first acting role in a feature film. Starring cast members also include SOFE COTE, SARA KAISER, CHANDANI SMITH, STEPHANIE DOMINI, MAX HUSTEN, and WAYNE GARRETT BAL “THE JURGEN MUNSTER”. The first trailer for DARK PRISM will be released MONDAY, OCTOBER FIFTH. In the meantime we will post a new still from the movie every day! DARK PRISM is about three unique and strange women, each battling their own demons, in both a literal and metaphorical sense. Although they exist in different times and perhaps different worlds, their lives will soon collide due to the mysterious appearance of a massive prism. Slowly, the world as one knows it disassembles, and the nonsensical becomes the sensical… in DARK PRISM. COMING SOON!
That trailer is now live. Watch it below:
