Although it is not strictly to with film or TV writing I would stronglt
sugest any books by the 70s theatre director Eugenio Barba. His methods and
lines of thought are extremly useful. I have used his ideas in creating a
short video last year for a project.
 
In particular try these:
 
Barba, Eugenio - The FLoating Islands (Denmark,[publisher unknown], 1979)
     It's an old copy, probably get newer ones. This is the best if you wish to
     see if you like him.
 
Barba, Eugenio - The Paper Canoe (New York, Routledge, 1995)
 
Christofferson, Erik Exe - The Actor's Way (New York, Routledge, 1993)
     May be useful from the actor's point of view.
 
Hope I can help,
 
Yours,
 
 
Sam Berger
