The films must contain location shooting of daily military life including demonstration of combat training, information on the history and purpose of military units, and interviews with servicemen. As was emphasized, the films must be based on the open sources and contain neither state secrets nor confidential information.
Time duration of every film must be 12 minutes. In total, defense ministry expects to receive 22 sets of 300 DVD in each by Dec 20, 2012. The tender will be held on Dec 10.
