CHICAGO – Actor/filmmaker Kentucker Audley gave an exclusive interview to Indie Outlook, the independent film blog and podcast founded by Hollywood Chicago staff writer Matt Fagerholm. Audley stars opposite Kate Lyn Sheil in Amy Seimetz’s acclaimed crime drama, “Sun Don’t Shine,” which premieres in Chicago on Friday, May 3rd, kicking off a week-long run at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

In addition to discussing his work in “Sun Don’t Shine,” Audley offered some great insight into his method of blurring the line between narrative and documentary in his 2010 film, “Open Five” (and its 2012 sequel), which offer painstakingly intimate portraits of struggling artists. Those are merely two of the numerous movies available in their entirety on the site, NoBudge Films, an indispensable collection of microbudget gems curated and updated by Audley himself. The Memphis-based filmmaker also revealed the profound inspiration he garnered from Wes Anderson’s “Bottle Rocket,” his excitement over the recent successes of his frequent collaborator, David Lowery (who directed Audley in his upcoming film, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), and why a new term must be coined to accurately describe films that are truly independent.
