I started out with 18 but by the 4th draft it got to a full 20.

Real worried about how long mine is coming at 19 pages, but the conversation kept going. I'll admit i haven't written in a few months, but this contest really got me going again.
also a little nervous about the format.
 
good luck to a 300 or so,
peace

I finished at 19 pages.  But it has the potential, to go a full 90 to 100 pages.
Good luck to everyone.

Started out at 18 pages, but then, following some advice from friends, filled some parts out a little more, so I ended up running just a little bit onto the 20th page.

Had to cut mine to get it to 20. Which is par for the course. I'm conditioned to write to whatever length I'm given (the joyful side effects of a life in advertising [sarcasm]). Write a little long and then cut to fit. The shorter the script, the less you explain! Can't - and probably shouldn't - answer everything. Like what I'm doing right now? Don't do that in your script.

20 pages here, and pretty much all of page 20. One more word of dialogue would have put me over. And that was without aiming for 20.

I think the second round is going to be more fun. 24 hours for just the script seems like a luxury, having done the 48 hour film project a few times.
 
P.S. - F. Chong, are you the same F. Chong as the TriggerStreet regular with a similar name? Just curious, how many TS folks did this contest.
 
And on that note - anyone else out there a TS regular?

I have an account on TriggerStree, but I am by no means a regular.
