the American Dreamer - History
www.theamericandreamer.com, 30 Oct 2014 [cached]
While running a ski area called Hilltop at Truckee that also contained a ranch hotel, a restaurant, and photography and culinary workshops, Frederick Kohler started the American Dreamer Magazine to tell stories of people working at Hilltop and their Dreams, inviting readers to contact writers of the stories that interested them. This participation would help each person achieve their Dream as well as increase the value of their collective lives. Kohler had to lay this project aside due to its hindering costs, scale and complexity.
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the P-51 & AT-6 , 1995, Arizona. Kohler produced an interactive CD series on Warbirds, telling stories of the aircraft, their owners, crew, and enthusiasts. The CDs also detailed technical procedures of maintaining and flying the aircraft. This project cost twice as much and took three times the estimated time to complete, but it allowed Kohler to establish a publishing house and led to his next project.

Kohler temporarily moved to Paris for family reasons. Two years prior, he had started writing a novel called The Romantic Adventures of Barney Starcrost Esquire to trace philosophical concepts he conceived in his adventures. In that process, he reunited with an old girlfriend, Sam, and wrote a screenplay with her called Strictly Business. Called to Paris, he decided to work on the novel again and thought of transplanting the idea of volunteerism in aviation into the arena of movie-making. If people could help each other to buy, maintain and fly a million-dollar aircraft of historical significance, why wouldn't they be able to unite to make a movie? This idea crystallized when he met a young Chinese-American, Ma Shumin, who aspired to be a film director.

The concepts in the American Dreamer are not original to Kohler (read more under History), but he is probably one of the first to integrate this chaos into a symbiotic organization of some sort. He is interested in almost everything and is fascinated by how one person, idea, or bit of history weaves in with other people's stories and creates the potential for people to help one another.
Kohler's philosophy creates the framework for the American Dreamer (see the American Dreamer Philosophy ). He's always up for a good debate and challenges to his ideas, so feel free to drop him a line.
the American Dreamer: The Quixotic Tale . A documentary on the making of the American Dreamer concept by following a modern-day Don Quixote (that would be Kohler).

About Kohler . Kohler stumbled into the business of renovating buildings, transforming slums into desirable properties. In 1976, he purchased and renovated a slum property and created a ski area, ranch hotel, restaurants, horse facilities, and photography & culinary workshops. While running this multi-faceted facility, Kohler started the American Dreamer Magazine to tell stories of individuals and their Dreams, inviting readers to participate in these Dreams. Kohler also looked to successful models of volunteerism in aviation clubs and wanted to apply such models to the film industry. Starting from scratch and making his way up by doing it all himself, Kohler's Dream is to use his income from renovating old buildings to finance feature films created with the participation of budding artists, showing all the steps of film production in a transparent manner.
