Quantico, Joshua Safran, TV show, scenery, staging
The scene we have here is taken from an American TV show called "Quantico". The first season of this "terrorism drama thriller" series premiered on September 2015 in the United States, and its last season (third one) concluded in August 2018.

In this specific scene, colors and frame used perfectly match the importance of the situation and the event (darkness when Simon hits his head for example). To conclude, the scene here is taken from a famous series which made a great success between the audience. [...]

[...] Now that we described the details of the scene, we will focus on the staging. We will talk first about the frame; all parts of this scene are including in the field, we would have a feeling that we have an out field part when we watch Alex and Ryan discussing but then the camera will show us their computer screen so that we know what they are talking about. About the shot scale, the scene represents several shots; at the beginning in the part where Simon gets in the room and find the twins, we have a close-up shot which allows us to see characters from there top half, the camera follows the actors during the scene and the shot changes during this same moment of the scene as we can see a medium shot where Simon is close to the room door and we see him from bottom to top.
