Having founded his audio post-production studio, Sterling Sound, almost 20 years ago, Lorens has enjoyed a wealth of experience in the advertising industry, consistently producing award-winning work for many of South Africa’s favourite brands and biggest agencies.

His award credits include top honours at the Loerie Awards, the Cannes Lions Festival, the D&AD Awards (where he has won Yellow Pencils for Sound Design in 2012 and 2016), the CLIO Awards, and London International Awards. Most notably, he was selected for judging panels at the CLIO Awards consecutively from 2007 to 2011, and to the Loerie Awards judging panel in 2013.

Not limiting himself to local productions, Lorens has also worked on ADR for several high-profile international projects such as the Roots mini-series (2016), and Marvel’s Black Panther (2018).

In addition to his sound design credentials, Lorens has composed bespoke original music tracks for a number of brands, including Castle Lager, Chicken Licken, Outsurance, First For Women, Standard Bank, Nedbank, DStv and Virgin Money Insurance.
