The fonds consists of raw footage, archival footage, sound recordings, masters, final mixes, other intermediate film versions or elements, research materials, publicity materials and digital copies from three main projects: 1) Chabot Solo – 3 films on early aviator and WWI pilot Charles Chabot, covering his early flights on different aircraft and the development of aviation in general right through to the Concorde; 2) By the Seat of their Pants, a 1989 documentary on Canadian bush pilots; and 3) Trident Trigull – raw footage from a documentary on the amphibious airplane developed in Burnaby, British Columbia, produced for CTV’s W5. Research materials gathered by Harris as he wrote the Chabot Solo films or By the Seat of their Pants include textual records, photographs (including negatives and slides), and home movies. The fonds is arranged by project into three series.
