Spite Your Face Productions, or SYF, is an animation production company based in London, England, consisting of animation directors Tony Mines and Tim Drage. They have created a variety of animated content for broadcast, web and DVD, but are best known for their series of stop-motion animated LEGO shorts.

Since 2001, SYF have worked on five animated projects for the LEGO company and their respective clients, including SONY, Marvel Entertainment, Lucasfilm and Python Pictures. They have also produced LEGO animations independently. SYF refer to these works as 'Bricksploitation films' to distinguish them from those of the fan community. Some of their films have been distributed internationally on DVD,[1] but all have enjoyed great success online, and are amongst the earliest viral video hits.
