Fleet Foxes‘ frontman Robin Pecknold is to score a new film, 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.”
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.
