BBC salaries: corporation falls short on Bame, gender gap pay

Just 11% of top talent from diverse background.

Just one-tenth of the BBC’s top on-screen talent is from a black, ethnic, minority background (Bame), the corporation’s Annual Report has revealed (reports Broadcast).

Bame stars make up 11% of the corporation’s top earners, with the likes of BBC Radio DJ Trevor Nelson and newsreader George Alagiah among the highest paid, with salaries of between £250,000 and £300,000.

Radio 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain earns between £200,000 and £250,000, less than half than her colleague John Humphrys’ £600,000-£650,000 salary.

Across the BBC, some 14% of its workforce is from a Bame background, in line with the national average.

Bame stars’ salaries pale in comparison with some of the corporation’s biggest earners, which include Radio 2 presenter and former Top Gear host Chris Evans, who topped the payroll with a salary of around £2.2m.

Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman, who also hosted a Michael Buble special at Christmas and Film 2016, was the highest

Joseph Baxter May 16, 2017

A brand new trailer for sci-fi action movie Kill Switch, starring Dan Stevens, has landed...

Update: A second trailer has now landed for this one. Which looks like this...

Here's our story on the original trailer from the start of the month...

However, the trailer showcases a rather unconventional effort with cinematography so reminiscent of a first-person-shooter video game, you’d think that this was a trailer for a movie adaptation of Half-Life. For the record, it’s not.

Chazelle, Davis, Jenkins, Lonergan & Villeneuve Land DGA Nominations

As we continue into the awards season in early 2017, more guilds are announcing their nominees/awards for the outstanding films of 2016. Next up is the Directors Guild of America, one of the heavy weights and usually strong indicators of what's to come. The DGA announced nominees for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film 2016, and they've chosen a very unique set of nominees this year. The biggest upset seems to be Garth Davis sneaking in a nomination for Lion, but I've seen Lion and it's a great film, though not one of my favorites. I'm very happy to see Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane getting a nomination, as well as Damien Chazelle, Denis Villeneuve & Barry Jenkins. Congrats to all! Full list below. The nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film 2016 (alphabetically): › Damien Chazelle for La La LandGarth Davis for LionBarry Jenkins for MoonlightKenneth Lonergan

Sundance 2017: 10 Must-See Shorts At This Year’s Festival

If you’re wondering where the next Damien Chazelle will come from, look no further than the 2017 Sundance Film Festival short film lineup.

Sundance has a long history of discovering the next generation of acclaimed filmmakers by first championing their short films. Chazelle made his first big splash by winning the 2013 Grand Jury Prize for “Whiplash” (the short). Last year, Jim Cummings won that prize for “Thunder Road,” and he’s back this year with a new short. Also generating a lot of pre-festival buzz is Kristen Stewart, making her writing/directing debut with the short “Come Swim.”

Before the Sundance Film Festival commences on January 19, 2017, here’s a briefing on Cummings’ “The Robbery,” Stewart’s “Come Swim” and eight other buzzworthy shorts (two of which are viewable online).

IndieWire reached out to the filmmakers to ask about their inspiration, production challenges and future projects. Check out our list below,
