Leigh Anne Lindsey is a videographer, video editor and writer who is part-owner of a portion of the original Home of Seabiscuit. She has filmed, produced, and edited web shows, commercial videos, and interviews with filmmakers and writers. In the late 70s and early 80s, she was a photojournalist, and a rock radio DJ and radio commercial producer for a small rock radio station in Aspen, CO. When she moved to Silicon Valley she helped tech companies flourish through sales and marketing, strategic alliance development, and fundraising efforts for over 18 years. Her early years were on her family’s large cattle and quarter horse ranch in East Texas where her love for horses began. It was through her experience training her own horses that led to an admiration of those who were true horse whisperers, like the trainer who transformed the misunderstood Seabiscuit, Tom Smith. That underdog’s magical transformation, which led to the uplifting of a nation suffering from the Great Depression, is one of her core motivations for bringing this film to life one day.
