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.
