MAP, Give it up for Palestine
What we did
Canvas once again had the pleasure of working with MAP to produce a ‘highlights’ film of MAP’s star-studded live comedy night, Give It Up for Palestine.
The event was held at the Leicester Square Theatre, in early 2017, and featured Sara Pascoe, Bill Bailey, Alexie Sayle, Shazia Mirza, Imran Yusuf and host Jeremy Hardy. The event raised money for Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), a charity which which works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living in Lebanon and the occupied Palestinian territories.
The aim of the film was to extend this unique night and give supporters, who were unable to attend the event, a taste of the acts.
Filmed with a two-man crew, using three cameras, the team covered the action onstage, as well as hosting backstage interviews with the celebrity participants.
