His first job in the film and television industry, when he was 11 years old, was as the host of a TV show on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) called "Film Fun" in which he showed kids how to make their own Super-8 movies. He later transformed that talent into producing commercials for various Ottawa businesses that aired on TV in the 1970s. At nineteen, Bryan moved to Los Angeles to attend the American Film Institute as a Director Fellow. After AFI, Bryan's Hollywood career began when he became assistant to Johnny Carson on the pilot for "TV Bloopers & Practical Jokes." A few years later,  Bryan's comedy shorts, "Undershorts" became a regular feature on the show.  Bryan's "Undershorts" started a following and soon were featured on HBO, "Foul-Ups, Bleeps & Blunders," "The American Comedy Awards" and on various comedy variety shows. Bryan went on to direct an episode of the classic George A. Romero TV series, "Tales from the Darkside," entitled "The Bitterest Pill", starring Mark Blankfield.  The episode became the season's highest rated episode.  Bryan also wrote for The Ice Queen animated feature, starring the voices of Lauren Bacall and Bryan Adams. Stoller's other animation writing credits include story editor on the Cinar animation series, Animal Crackers. Bryan directed the landmark music video Hands Across America, produced by Ken Kragen which featured appearances by Barbra Streisand, Drew Barrymore and Robin Williams.
