Jude Klassen –
Jude Klassen is a filmmaker, journalist, TV and fiction writer, actor, and host of Judecast. Klassen’s monthly columns in Movie Entertainment Magazine included one-on-one celebrity interviews (10 Questions), film picks (Klassen’s Choices) and set visits (Canada’s Call Sheet). Jude’s short stories have been published in the late great Canadian Forum and received a Canada Council Explorations grant. She wrote the widely screened Bravofact short film Do Not Bend (Chicago Reeling Fest, Toronto Inside Out, Cinefest Sudbury and many more), starring Anna Silk (Lost Girl) and Peter Keleghan (Sex After Kids).
Klassen was story editor on the Leslie Neilsen Biography spoof, Liocracy, and executive story edited 13 episodes of The Comedy Network’s quirky classic, The Mr. Dink Show.
In 2011 Jude’s alter ego Tasha James wrote a love song to Rob Ford that went viral overnight and was covered in the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, Blog TO, Xtra, CTV’sW5, Toronto Life and the Huffington Post. Tasha and Fast Ford Nation went on to musically skewer Big Oil, Prison Reform, and Rob Ford a few more times.
