This isn't a full-fledged I, Absentee release, rather a project produced in part by the label. Filmed in 2006 initially as a freelance project, a lengthy post-production period extended it into the company's formation, where it was completed through the label. Given its origins pre-dating the imprint's first release, it was assigned the catalogue number "IA000". Though it was completed in early 2008, audio issues, as well as lack of financing resulted in the video remaining unreleased to the public. In the years that followed, I, Absentee circulated around ten copies privately to close friends and tour crew, as a DVDr with full artwork (traces of the original art appear on the 2011 DVD's menu screen).

In 2010, a freelance artist/designer purposed the idea of overseeing a publicly-released DVD, to be financed through fan pre-orders. With no satisfactory resolutions to the audio issues, it was decided a bootleg release was the best way to present the project. I, Absentee forwarded the complete materials of the video for the 2011 incarnation of the project. This was further coupled with a PIG performance from Japan in 1999 and two music videos, none of which I, Absentee had involvement in. The collective content was packaged and shipped to fans, emancipated from I, Absentee and PIG, yet fully acknowledged by both parties. The five year postponement of public release, which involved countless logistical issues, came to a conclusion through this obfuscated avenue and in very limited quantities, as a means to finally deliver the oft-requested footage to the fans.
