Filmmaker-entrepreneur brothers Matt and David Cooper have continued their post-production buying spree with the purchase of Novastar Digital Sound.
Acquisition is part of the Coopers’ strategy of establishing a collective of companies offering a wide range of post-production and Internet services.
They recently acquired the Post Group (Daily Variety, May 3). They also own Lightning Media and Santa Monica-based production shingle the Vault, and they’re co-owners of iO Film.
Novastar offers sound design and editorial for film, TV and gaming, as well as sound restoration services.
Plans include build-out of Novastar to incorporate new recording stages and a dedicated suite for DVD commentary tracks.
Co-founders Greg Geddes and Bob Sky will continue to manage the company under the Coopers’ ownership.
