In 2014 Sophie formed production company Radix Films with then Channel 4 executive Timothy Root. Here she directed and exec produced the 20 minute short film, THE TRIP, starring Sope Dirisu (Huntsman Winter's War, Black Mirror, Humans) and Gillian Saker (Misfits, Ripper St, Houdini & Doyle), which has been screened at festivals in Hollywood, New York, London and more, and has been accepted into multiple BAFTA and Oscar qualifying festivals. It has been nominated for awards such as Best International Short, Best Drama and Best Production Design. THE TRIP is distributed by AMC and Shorts International's channel ShortsTV and associated television channels, and was broadcast in America with a primetime Saturday night 'Movie of the Week' slot. It can now be viewed on iTunes, Amazon, Verizon and GooglePlay.

In 2017 Sophie was selected to join BAFTA Crew, to mentor her directing career further.
