Oz’s Oasis DVD expands

Co. buys L.A.-based TNT Media

SYDNEY — Australian DVD maker Oasis DVD has announced a major expansion of its U.S. activities with the acquisition of L.A.-based film, TV and DVD facility TNT Media.

Oasis DVD’s parent company, Adelaide-based Kojo Group, has bought the post-production group, whose major clients include Hollywood studios, advertising agencies and production companies.

Oasis DVD delivers added-value film content, design and authoring services to Australian, U.K and U.S. film companies. The TNT Media facilities will support Oasis DVD and continue to provide production services worldwide.

Kojo is an Australian production company active in docus, multimedia projects and production. It also offers post-production facilities, as used in Scott Hicks’ “Hearts in Atlantis.”

Company, founded by director-cinematographers John Chataway and Kent Smith 12 years ago in Adelaide, will combine TNT Media and Oasis DVD with its existing U.S. operation, Peel Me a Grape, to create a substantial DVD content provider and production force in Hollywood.

The combined group employs staff in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, and Los Angeles.
