Jeremy Simmons makes his directorial debut with the slick documentary School's Out: The Life of a Gay High School in Texas. Originally aired on MTV, the film examines the lives of a few students at Walt Whitman High School near Dallas, TX. The private school is on the brink of closing its doors due to a low enrollment of only ten students. Simmons talks to kids who are lesbian, gay, transgendered, and HIV-positive. Narrated by Wilson Cruz and featuring the music of Coldplay, Radiohead, and Travis, School's Out was screened at the 2003 San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.
