TWELVE is a short form cinepoetry series. The project was released once a month from 12 May 2013 – 12 April 2014. Produced by Candy Royalle, Patch Sinclair, Ashley Blackmore and Tessa Rex.
The first video ‘And Then there Were Two’ was screened at ‘Poetry d’Amour 2013: Love Poems for Valentine’s Day’ in Western Australia before the idea of making a 12-part series was decided. After TWELVE was well underway, ‘And then there were Two’ was also entered into the Queensland Poetry Festival, Filmmakers Challenge 2013 where it received a ‘Highly Commended’ recommendation.
