Fleet Foxes' frontman Robin Pecknold is to score a new film, which is titled The Internet – A Blog Cats WTF Universe.

The film, which will be directed by Pecknold's brother Sean and Matt Daniels, will tell the story of a character named Matt who has made a successful living as a "LOLcat caption writer", but who suffers an existential crisis and decides to decamp to Berlin in search of a life that provides more than "just viral internet cat humor." You can watch the trailer for the film by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The film will mix live-action shots with animations, including one of "an epic animated God creature." Pecknold will provide all the music, apart from one "techno song".

The producers of The Internet – A Blog Cats WTF Universe are currently trying to secure funding to finish the film and have started a page on funding website Kickstarter.com to try and raise $15,000 ((£9,300).

As part of their fundraising drive, the producers are offering a series of bizarre pledges, with $10 getting you named as a producer, $250 getting you a hand written document explaining the meaning of life, $500 getting you the filmmakers throwing you a dance party and $5,000 scoring you a part in their next film.

Fleet Foxes released their second album 'Helplessness Blues' in 2011.
