Caribbean Filmmaker Paul Pryce’s Original TV Series ‘Serpents Mouth’ Wins ‘Big Pitch’ Awards At Toronto Film Festival

Trinidadian-born, New York based actor/filmmaker Paul Pryce has won two major awards for his original television series Serpents Mouth from the Caribbean Tales Incubator Film Lab, ‘The Big Pitch’ at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The Caribbean Tales Incubator Film Lab allows Caribbean producers to pitch their prospective television projects to industry insiders during the Breakfast at TIFF series at the TIFF Lightbox, held this year on Sunday, September 9.

Pryce’s pitch for Serpents Mouth was voted Best Pitch by a panel of judges and received the People’s Choice Award from an audience of media and industry professionals at the event.

Serpents Mouth is a television adaptation of Pryce’s 14-minute proof of concept film The Deliverer which will have its World Premiere on Saturday, September 15 at 9pm at The Royal Cinema, downtown Toronto. The Deliverer is part of the Caribbean Tales Film Festival, a showcase for Caribbean films presented during TIFF from September 5 through 20.

The Deliverer was written and produced by Pryce who also appears in the leading role. His longtime collaborator, Ron Morales directs. Their last film Come Out, Come Out, had its World Premiere at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Pryce holds an MFA in acting from the Yale School of Drama. He appeared in Marvel’s Jessica Jones, A+E’s Unforgettable as well as in plays across the United States, before launching Paul Pryce Entertainment to produce his own content.

The Deliverer is inspired by real events. Set in Trinidad, it tells the story of a fisherman who fails to stop a corrupt Government from destroying his village to make way for an oil refinery. He eventually brokers a deal with a drug runner to traffic cocaine and raise the funds to bribe the government into aborting their plan.

Also, in development for Pryce is a romantic-drama titled Between Us, a feature film set in New York City and Korea, which is a collaboration with actor/filmmaker Hyojin Park.

Following Toronto, The Deliverer will have its Caribbean premiere at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, followed by its Ontario premiere at the Montreal International Black Film Festival, both later in September.

The Royal Cinema is located at 608 College Street, Toronto, Ontario.

Hamlet (with Paul Giamatti)

“… Fortinbras, a martial Paul Pryce … a confident man who strides onto the stage, calmly assesses the situation and takes a seat in the throne with consummate swagger.”

Celebrex generic

“Not to be out done Paul Pryce, who plays the bartender, Ted who initially doesn’t say much during Harry’s derailing, gives a provocatively memorable performance especially in the last scene where he delivers a tour-de-force monologue about life’s forgotten treasures. Pryce is a young actor worth taking note of …”

Accutane reviews

“… Paul Pryce who pays Ted, the quiet but vigilant owner of the bar steals the final scene of the play with a powerfully poignant monologue.”

Maria Govan, Filmmaker Play the Devil

When casting the lead in our film “Play the Devil” we found a very talented actor from the UK, Petrice Jones, who gave an excellent audition. He was however British, and our film about a working class Trinidadian boy.  We were very concerned that he would not be able to achieve a believable accent.  Paul who is a professional actor and from Trinidad, offered to help with our dialect coaching.   He did a fantastic job!  When Petrice arrived in Port of Spain he was immediately embraced as a local.  Never once has anyone having watched the film, commented on his accent. In fact most people are surprised to learn that he is not from Trinidad.  I cannot thank Paul enough, nor speak more highly his praises. He is professional and warm and lovely to communicate with.  Thank you Mr. Pryce for all that you have done!

Jarvis Matthews; New York based Actor

 “Authenticity is at the core of Paul Pryce’s coaching technique. Paul’s mantra of “Dig Deeper” allowed me to tap into new choices and actions that were true to the text and my nature. Choosing Paul as my acting coach in preparation for my graduate school auditions was THE BEST choice of all. His knowledge and experience as both a MFA graduate and professional actor in New York City makes all the difference to anyone who is seeking an honest, talented, and thought provoking coach. Paul crafts a unique coaching style were rigor, hard-work, fun, discovery, and truth are all essential to the actor and the material. My growth has been undeniable under the tutelage of Paul Pryce.”

Hyojin Park; The New School M.F.A . Acting Candidate 2019

As a Korean actress, one of my dreams was going to a top graduate school for acting in the U.S. I felt that it was very difficult because English is not my first language, however Paul helped not only with my acting but with the clarity of my English…because of his passionate coaching I am convinced I got accepted to the M.F.A. program at The New School.

Jane Fujita-Guyer Assistant

Paul Pryce provided brilliant and generous support for NYU’s Grad Acting production  of Playboy of the West Indies.  He is an outstanding dialect and acting coach who understands the relationship between sounds, character and action.  Our students success was largely due to his work on the project.
