Yesterday at the roundtable for Quentin Tarantino‘s war epic Inglourious Basterds, Eli Roth said it would be fine if we Flipped him (recorded video of him via “flip camera” – I’m trying to create a new word for it). He sat down to the table ready to not only answer our questions but entertain us with a number of great stories from the set. He talked about nearly being killed on set by filming when a fire on set got out of control, Tarantino’s strict “no cell phone, no chair village” policy, having to become “The Bear Jew” and a whole lot more.

Check out three videos below…

And finally, he talks about the awesome-ness that is working with Quentin Tarrantino and how he has change the way that he directs films:
