Pampa Teen Immortalized in New Movie

by: Kristen Guilfoos

Amarillo, Texas - A movie shot entirely on location in Amarillo and Pampa hits store shelves nationwide on December 15th... It's called "A Greater Yes."

It's a full length movie about a 16-year-old girl named Amy Newhouse who grew up in Pampa. It chronicles her life... From her passion for making the world a better place by starting Pampa High School's first alcohol and drug-free club to her state volleyball championship to the biggest battle of her life... Fighting cancer.

It's a battle she lost nine months after being diagnosed.

The movie showcases sights and sounds of both Amarillo and Pampa. Director/Producer/Actor Bradley Dorsey says, "We used Pampa High school, various locations around there. We used Consuelos Mexican Restaurant. Baptist St. Anthony's hospital. We used the exterior shots of their hospital. And then their old hospital, which used to just be St. Anthony's, we used that for all the interior shots of the hospital."

The movie was made by a local film maker who says he never knew Amy, but he went to her funeral and when he saw thousands of others there as well, he knew there was something special about this girl... And something he needed to share with the world.
