Creating Motion Picture Based Scores with Synthesizers?

Hello! New poster here, and new music artist. I am writing some scores for my website in motion picture format. I would like to know what synthesizers (digital) the best sounding artists use out there. I'm planning on incorporating choruses with strings, keyboards, brass, wood, etc.

I use Musescore, so I need something like a synthesizer vst plugin that can help create what's in my mind into the best sounding digital score that synthesizers can buy.

Do note I'm on a budget, so anything beyond 100 dollars is a no go.

My first (demo) composition. Awenliya's Theme

^^^^ the above list that Desire put up is a good place to start.

But before you get instantly disappointed - film composers and those who do orchestral "imitations" almost always have HUGE libraries and instruments that can - and often do - cost 10's of thousands of dollars. $20,000 in sample libraries is not unusual.

$100 will not get you very far. I'd get started with the above list, but be prepared to get out your wallet as you find the shortcomings of free VSTi's.
