Hollywood, CA, January 7, 2008– David Naylor, head of The DVD Group, Hollywood’s premiere producer of featurettes, documentaries and other bonus features for mainstream feature films and television series released on DVD, has announced the expansion and relocation of his company.

The DVD Group’s new space is within a building which was formerly the West Coast headquarters, during the 1920s, of The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco.) The building was declared Los Angeles’ 888th Historic Building during mid-December 2007.

“We were very impressed with the quality of the construction and the character of this particular building,� Mr. Naylor said. “We then discovered it was in a state and federal economic empowerment zone, which provided us with numerous financial incentives for relocating to this area.

We are excited about the opportunities provided by this move, and look forward to meeting our new neighbors in the area.� Most recently, The DVD Group produced the Russell Crowe/Christian Bale "3:10 to Yuma" DVD for Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
