Well-attended Feb. 21 party at Jones Bay Wharf marked the bow of the studio’s Oz headquarters.

International distribution veep Roger Pollock and Par Oz topper Mike Selwyn did a double act, each with a speech that was short and sweet. And local bizzers were buzzing on news of the studio’s aggressive new acquisition and production investment drive.
