Meet the committee
CHAIR Rory Napier
Rory is a third year Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering student and, as Chair, his job is to make sure the society doesn’t do anything that would result in it getting shut down. He is distinguishable by his habit of wearing almost all green and is a huge Warhammer Age of Sigmar and 40K player with a substantial collection. Whilst you can expect him to be watching a decent amount of the seasonal anime he also enjoys a bit of gaming on the side in the form of world of warships and rocket league.
TREASURER Angus Graham
Angus is a third year Physics student whose main interest is in anime but will watch just about any of the films shown at the other screenings. He enjoys most things Nintendo, being tested on Pokémon trivia, and having free time, although this last one clashes with his unhealthy obsession with watching almost every anime that’s airing each season. His knee jerk pick for favourite anime is the Monogatari Series and his favourite movie is The Emperor’s New Groove. He can be found worrying about how his hair looks and playing games at four in the morning.
SECRETARY & PUBLICITY Rhys Pitcher
Rhys, pulling double duty this year as Secretary and Publicity Rep, is a third year Civil Engineering student. It's his job to keep committee running smoothly and advertise screenings (keep an eye out for his newsletters). A big fan of online horror sci-fi like The Magnus Archives and the SCP wiki, you can also find him catching up on last year's seasonal anime.
SOCIAL SECRETARY Seher Singh
Seher is a third year psychology student. Her job is planning socials (whatever that means with COVID and restrictions) and making sure that everyone in the society is having fun. She is a die-hard Marvel Cinematic Universe fan, but generally enjoys any movie with a good storyline. Before joining the society her anime choices were restricted to Detective Conan and some obscure anime, but now she she can be found stocking up on all the good seasonals and catching up with old but great anime. Outside of the society, she enjoys cooking, reading and having fun with her friends.
IT OFFICER Dylan Drescher
Dylan is a second-year Computer Science student. He helps out with the technology side of the society. His main interests are computers, board games, anime and he loves all things rhythm games and roguelikes. You'll probably see him playing games, commonly of the rhythm/roguelike variety, listening to criminally underrated artists (t+pazolite, Camellia, USAO, too many to put here!), playing tabletop games or programming.
WELFARE & INCLUSIVITY Francisco Nabais
Francisco is a second year Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering student and deemed not to be trustworthy when it comes to games like Werewolf or Secret [Redacted]. He is a huge Marvel fan and fancies himself a bit of a Fire Emblem connoisseur. In terms of anime his favourite is Attack on Titan, but he enjoys just about anything with a little action. Lastly, he is foreign and as such does not understand why he must talk about himself in the third person.
