Sean Webby was eager to begin working on a new project for his magnanimous leader, ILoveKimPossibleAlot (aka KP). He was to “head the entire project,” called Let’s Go and Meet John de Lancie (the video has since been made private), and saw it as “an opportunity for the community as a whole to band together and show de Lancie that [we] still cared.” KP made promises “like, ‘you’ll be creating something that John de Lancie and Tara Strong will see,’ or, ‘you’ll have so many new fans after this.’”
His life, unbeknownst to him, was about to be turned into “absolute hell.”
Early on, when KP first contacted Sean about the project, she “did not have a team of editors/animators creating her videos[; she] was pretty much doing everything on her own” and he was “definitely one of the first to work for her.” He was interested in her pitch, stating he “liked the idea behind it.”
Inasmuch as already stated, Sean “was the head of [the] entire project” and he “stuck with it from the very beginning to the very end.” He filled many roles, including “the director, an animator, audio mixer, and co-manager of the whole thing.” Additionally, KP “had [him] edit some of her videos on the side.”
Slowly and with difficulty did the work proceed for our intrepid project manager. The team would “[gain] animators only to lose them[, ...] cycle through multiple musicians for the creation of [a] song, [and] generally [have] delays like no tomorrow.” Among their “struggle[es] to get this thing finished,” Sean began to notice it was “[taking] such a toll on [his] physical [and] mental health” and felt like he “didn’t have the strength to quit.” Furthermore, “[b]ecause [he] convinced [himself] it was [his] responsibility to finish it” and that the “project would crumble without [him]” he began to believe he would be “[rewarded] in some way.”

Amongst all this drudgery, he began to “[realize] this [project] had little to do with the community and everything to do with her.” In fact, he began to believe “the [brony] community was just a backdrop to populate a world that only revolved around her.”

Jarringly, Sean then experienced a personal tragedy:
One early morning, I was awoken to my dad telling me that my mom had passed out while brushing her teeth in the bathroom, and that her head hit the edge of the bathtub upon landing. She was out cold, and needed to be taken to the emergency room. Considering she was recovering from a concussion, having this happen was a pretty big deal. Luckily, she turned out fine, but it was really scary when it happened.
Ensuingly after this harrowing ordeal, he “told KP about this [and] that this was going to be delaying the production a bit.” Initially she was “understanding” and “willing to be patient about it.” But within a few weeks, “that video [came] out.”
|Stay classy, KP.|
Within the video, KP apologizes for a delay in the release of the project, but states “it’s not my fault, send your hate mail here” and then posts a link to Sean’s DeviantArt page. She then bemoans “all these bad things [happening] to [her]” before literally belittling Sean and stating, “This is what happens when you have free labor.” Though he admits “she probably meant for that to come off as a [joke, but] even as a joke, it seemed very passive aggressive and in rather poor taste.”

Faced with the outcome of this experience, Sean says, “I regret wasting an entire year of my life helping to bring [the project] into fruition.” What about the promises made by KP when the project began? Well, “JDL didn’t see that video for nearly 2 years after its release [and] Tara has no idea it even exists.” What about all the #HorseFame he gained from working on such a prestigious project? He answers, “I didn’t gain any exposure from it.”

And what did Sean learn during this year of agony?
But if that experience has taught me anything, it’s to never offer your services for free. No matter who it’s for, or what you think you’ll achieve from it. It won’t get you anywhere, and you’ll be wasting time that you could be spending creating your own works, or earning what you deserve from someone who will respect your time and effort.
Great advice that we could all use.
So there you have it, dear readers: A first-hand account of what it’s like to work with KP on one of her projects. You can read the full transcript of what Sean sent us here.
