The last take was attended by Defence Minister Dragan Sutanovac, managing director of RTS Aleksandar Tijanic and Head of the Military Academy, Brigadier General Mladen Vuruna with associates who wholeheartedly assisted during the fourteen months of filming the series.

- At a meeting with Mr Garic, executive producer of the series, 18 months ago, we talked about making a great project of marking the centennial of the Battle on Cer, and the great victory of the Serbian army in World War I, and we ended meeting with the idea of making a series "Military Academy", the last take of which was taken today - said the defense minister expressing hope that the television audience will have the opportunity to watch the series about remarkable young people who chose to study at the Military Academy.

According to him, the idea was to promote the military calling, but also to restore the confidence of young people in the military profession.

The Head of the Military Academy, Brigadier General Mladen Vuruna on this occasion said that he was sorry that the cooperation had come to an end, expressing the hope that they would work on new joint projects.

- We are very proud to have a series on the Military Academy and that the life of cadets is presented exactly as we wanted it – as a school which admits hard working young people of whom we make the future officers of the Army of Serbia. We learned a lot from the cast, and I hope you have learned from us as well during this unusual collaboration of artists and military-as general Vuruna pointed out congratulating the cast and the whole crew.

According to the series executive producer Nebojsa Garic, during more than 130 days of shooting, the atmosphere was great.
