Cooper siblings buy Post Group

Duo add post-prod'n house to collection

Filmmaker-entrepreneur brothers Matt and David Cooper, already owners of several post-production facilities in Hollywood, have bought the Post Group.

The Coopers also own Lightning Media and co-own iO Film and Santa Monica-based production company the Vault.

Steve Buchsbaum, who’s been CEO of Lightning Media, adds the title of CEO of the Post Group.

The Coopers’ involvement in the Post Group began as a strategic alliance negotiation for iO Film to provide digital intermediate services for the Post Group. Instead, the Coopers bought out Post Group founder Fred Rheinstein.
