GREETINGS FROM AMSTERDAM
We love Amsterdam. We’re a bunch of locals who share our passion and love for our city through weekly videos on our “Amsterdam Calling” YouTube channel. As American expats, we discovered what a unique and charming place Amsterdam is. So we started a channel to promote the city and to bring a little bit of its Dutch awesomeness and magic to an international audience.

 BEYOND THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT WITH LOCAL EXPERTS
“Amsterdam Calling” is the most entertaining & informative way to learn about Europe’s most charming city. We enlist Amsterdam bloggers and vloggers to co-host many of the episodes with us, so you’re finding out about the best food, shopping, places and events from true city experts, not just random bloggers passing through. We prove that there is more to Amsterdam past the Red Light District. Our videos present Amsterdam’s striking beauty, rich, artistic culture and deep history. And we take you off the tourist path, to lesser known places and hidden treasures not visited by average tourists.

THE FUTURE AND BEYOND
Hello. I’m Jerry Goldberg, the producer of “Amsterdam Calling”. After 3 years now, the city keeps surprising us with more things to see and do and our subscriber base is increasing faster than ever. It’s a very good feeling to know that you like and appreciate our work and we’re thrilled when you tell us that our videos help you plan your trips here. This encourages us to keep doing what we’re doing. We are getting better and better at what we do and our style has become more polished. But we want to improve even more. Not just with quality but also with different types of videos.

CHANNEL GOALS
We want to make more artistic, cinematic music-video type episodes, capturing the awe-inspiring beauty of the city with amazing angles, clarity and experimental formats such as 360 degree viewing. We’ll make more useful tip episodes for visitors and more videos about the people who live here. And we’ll film in more Dutch cities. Our Dutch love is not just limited to Amsterdam.

SUPPORT
But these improvements will cost. Up to now we’ve financially supported the channel ourselves and we’re happy to continue to do so. But taking the channel to the next level alone will be difficult. This is where you can help. If you’re a fan of our videos, for whatever reason, or if you’re a big Amsterdam lover, please consider supporting us with a small, recurring donation through Patreon. Your support will help us reach our channel goals and help the long life of the channel.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES
First, your contributions will cover current shooting & operating expenses. They’re not much, but they add up and the small revenue we earn from YouTube barely makes a dent. Next, we’ll invest in better equipment- higher quality cameras and rigs. As donations increase we’ll be able to pay our hosts and collaborators, pay for longer travel distances and afford to hire professional cameramen and editors. Your wonderful support will allow us to spend more time on the channel and attract talented work partners.

CONTRIBUTION LEVELS
You can contribute a minimum of $1 per video to a maximum of whatever you would like to give us. We make about 3 to 4 videos a month. You can even set a cap amount per month in case we upload more than our usual amount of videos. As a thank you for your generosity, we’re offering rewards for different donation amounts. Please check them out in the right hand column of this page. With any contribution you will indeed be part of the Amsterdam Calling team. You’ll be able to keep up with our news and progress through the Patreon page. You will be able to interact with us, make suggestions and give us your input. In other words, you can help shape the direction of our channel.

We think Patreon is the future of project funding as it makes it easier for artists and their supporters to connect with each other. Why not be a part of it? Why not be a part of us? Thank you very much and we’ll see you in Amsterdam!
