Thomas Lundberg is well known among Chelsea fans. Today on Youtube, people create videos on just about every enthralling topic and sometimes miss out on minute details. Thomas, or HDWorldleague production as he is known as on Youtube, creates and edits movies on the ups and downs of Chelsea’s seasons. Telling that he edits clips is an understatement as he truly creates art, or poetry in motion, that completely mesmerizes and encapsulates the hearts of the audience he touches.
Q. How long have you supported Chelsea and why Chelsea and not any other club?
Thomas : I started to support Chelsea when I was 9 or 10 years old. It was the first team I had ever supported. My very first shirt was a CFC Shirt. Chelsea is a club full of emotions and passion. They haven’t got the best history, but I am not a fan who lives in the past. It’s the love and the feelings that make me love Chelsea. I don’t support any other team, because Chelsea have a special thing, that many other teams don’t have. A lot of my friends are United supporters. I think they only think about the history, and they want to support a club with history. I wanted to support a team that has love, passion, unity and emotion.
Q. There are loads of topics which you can cover as a video editor. What persuaded you to make about Chelsea?
Thomas : I have always loved to edit videos, not only football videos. Since I love Chelsea so much, I decided to make Chelsea videos. It was a good opportunity for me, to make what I really like to do. I can show my feelings for Chelsea with my videos.
Q. A number of fans around the world had an amazing night on the 19th of May as we once again created history. How did you spend that night?
Thomas : I was in Copenhagen together with my friends and with hundreds of Chelsea fans. I was in a bar called Guldhornene, a Chelsea bar located in the city itself. We started at 3pm and ended at 4am in the morning after the big victory. After the win we partied and celebrated so much, drank a lot of beers, once again an amazing day and night. The best day in my life so far.
Q. Throughout our history, who has been your favorite Chelsea player and why?
Thomas : Frank Lampard. His personalty is so good. He seems to be very kind. I play football myself and he has inspired me a lot. He is not like a “typical” football player. The day he ends his career in Chelsea, will be a very difficult day for me, and for other Chelsea fans.
Q. What do you think Chelsea will achieve next season?
Thomas : I think we will get a good season. I do not expect EPL and CL titles. instead I hope we get our hands on them. I expect that we will get at least one out of the 7 trophies that we are competing this season. I think we will win the FA Cup and the Super Cup. But I really hope we get some Premier League glory.
Q. Are you thinking of taking up film editing as a career or just as a hobby? Any particular ambitions?
Thomas : Yes. I am thinking to take up film editing as a career and as my future. Perhaps I want to produce films too, not only editing. One of my dreams is to work for Chelsea TV. But yes, I want to work with film.
Q. On a last note, you seem to have quite a large fan following with 1,250 plus subscribers, 640,000 video views and also 1762 Facebook followers. Any message to your fans?
Thomas : I want to say thanks to all my fans for watching my videos and send me those amazing comments. I am so grateful. People often ask me if I get paid for this. I don’t. But to see the way people react to my movies is nearly more worth than money. Thank you to everyone who supports me and watches my movies!
Thank you Thomas Lundberg for sharing your thoughts with me. It’s been an honor and given some much needed experience. You inspired me to learn Sony Vegas and that’s something I wont forget in a hurry. From Chelsea fans in India and around the world, I thank you for all your effort and we’re all looking forward to see some more !
