Scarlet Crusade speaks of blind faith. Having faith in something most of the time means something positive although it also ties us to a series of beliefs that can lead us to deplorable acts. Throughout history there have been many leaders who have got people to have blind faith in them and this has triggered wars and genocides. In the series you can see Catholic religious connotations, this is because it has been the cause of numerous bloodshed both globally, in wars, and personal beliefs / dogmas / doctrines that sometimes makes us carry out unusual situations.

I am a student of audiovisual communication at the University of Burgos. I have always felt passion for photography, so after studying 3D design and animation I started studying audiovisual communication. I would love that on some occasion photography can become my full-time job and become a director of photography.
