Director Jennifer Phang makes excellent near-future dystopian sci-fi movies. Her film "Half Life" caught my eye some years ago. I am pleased that my track "Fortitude Bumper" now appears on her new film, "Advantageous". The new film is a really great piece of story-telling, about a near-future in which new technology is used to perpetuate old stereotypes.

The song is an abbreviated rework of my 2007 release "Fortitude" from the "Seven Virtues" EP.  The film won an award at this year's Sundance Film Festival and is about to receive its debut on Netflix. It's a solid story about a future a bit more high-tech but a bit worse than our present.

I'd like to give a shout-out not only to Jennifer Phang, but also to
Timo Chen whose work in creating the vast majority of the soundtrack is a great listen and just right for the film.

Here's a great piece from Indiewire about the movie "Advantageous".
