Do we feel that connection is something difficult? What if it is actually simple?
City Connections is a short video made in Hong Kong connecting us back to the simplicity of joy between people, in our exploration with individuals in different walks of life, it is a very natural but sometimes forgotten expression in our busy city.

The Simply Love Project is crowdfunding the goal of $21K to cover production cost of main video.
We already have a few countries interested in joining us in co-creating--our stretch goal of $40K will start building the foundation of working with another team abroad to keep building The Simply Love Project Library of videos on connection. (See details About The Simply Love Project below)
And if we fund our stretch goal of $60K, this will become a step closer to reality and to sharing more connection globally.
We aim to share the main video on you tube, social media and printed media throughout Hong Kong and globally, in publications City Magazine, Good Life Magazine, Magazine P and online platforms seasonslady.com, xplorer.com etc.
About The Simply Love Project
Inside of every one of us is a Light and it feels and connects with the light in everyone else until tangibly we know there is no such thing as being alone. I see any art exploration as a scientific experiment --- the project aims to find out whether there are others out there who feel the same – that we are all essentially one.
The Simply Love Project is a platform that every person in every country can be a part of—All Are Invited.

If you feel strongly about expressing human connections through film and video, this project could be for you.
- Form a team in your country (videographer, photographer, sound recording, )
- Find people who want to express in front of the camera
- Get in contact with us and we will work with you to produce a video
- Make a teaser and use it to crowd fund the full length video
- Co-create a video with the Simply Love Project team
- We share this living connection on the internet in a growing library of Simply Love Projects across the world.
This project is not about end results, it is about connections. The relationships that we make through the process of filming are at the heart of the real work of the Simply Love Project. The end product is a beautiful bonus that means that many more people can connect to what we have experienced during the making of the film.
About the founder and director of The Simply Love Project:
Adele Leung / Hong Kong
I work as an art director and fashion stylist and have been for the last 18 years. Expressing the innate love, joy, harmony, glory, amazingness of us as individual human beings, and collectively, as a race, is what I do in collaboration with many amazing individuals. The discovery of myself, the returning to what is love within me, allows me to discover the depths of my subjects and the beauty that wishes to be expressed. What is the most beautiful, is the honesty and truthfulness of who we are. Being me, allows you to be you. About me, in-truth, is about all of us.
