Film crew focuses on Amsterdam

The Dutch film crew dines in Butler Wednesday evening- L to R:
Rob Rombout,  Ben Wolf,  Matthew Menter,  Peggy Buhr,
Rogier van Eck,  Donna and Randy Gregory
There’s a movie being made not in Hollywood or New York, but all across the USA and it includes scenes featuring little ‘olAmsterdam, Mo.

That’s right- a Dutch film crew is making a documentary about all the cities named Amsterdam in the United States and of course that would include a stop here in Bates County.

While dining at the Inn Building Wednesday night, Peggy Buhr along with Donna and Randy Gregory learned about the project that will include footage from all 16 Amsterdam’s in the USA that stretch from New Jersey to California.

Besides filming, the crew had a good time visiting new found friends in and around Amsterdam and Butler. This included filming at the Amsterdam Cafe and the Fur, Fins & Feathers taxidermy shop on the South edge of town. And lots of still photos were taken as well.
From their blog- “We ended the night how all nights should end…good food and good drinks with new friends. Peggy and Donna, two great women of Butler MO, invited us to a meal at Majestic Cellars. It was such a spectacular evening. I recommend the steak and crab. After a long day of filming, dinners like this are so essential. A big thank you to everyone who made today so productive and memorable.”

The crew’s blog can be seen here and it encompasses every detail of the project and their journey as it takes them across the USA in “One American Adventure” as it’s been coined.
