Is it classical though, when the music is written to illustrate moving pictures? Shouldn'T it stand in its own?

Try Lowell Liebermann or Ellen Taafe Zwilich. You can find examples of both on Youtube.

Being a respectable contemporary composer no longer means embracing serialism or even atonality (thank goodness!).
