On September 28th the 43rd APRA silver scroll awards will be announced.  It's a celebration of Kiwi song writing and this year contenders for the the main award are, for the first time, all female.

But there is more than one award.  Over the years the event has grown to encompass other than just Pop Culture.  This year, for the fourth time, there's an award for the "Best Original Music In A Film" and one of the finalists is our guest today, RNZ Studio Operator, Marc Chesterman.

Spookers is a popular theme park on the site of the former Kingseat Psychiatric Hospital.  The owners Beth and Andy Watson have turned this into a place where Zombie brides, baby-killing banshees and psycho-killer clowns are all part of the entertainment.  Spookers has been scaring the living daylights out of visitors since 2005 and Florian's film takes a look at the actors who dress up as corpses and chainsaw-wielding maniacs to "Entertain" the park's patrons.
