We take 35mm slides from film strips and then scan the slides at 3000dpi.
A slide-duplicating machine (like an optical printer for stills) is a
good way to make the slides.
It's awkward to scan film on a flatbed scanner, and the resolution is
not as good as for curved or drum scans. Once you have the image on a
35mm slide you can easily make high-resolutions scans.

The cost is not so high if you make six dozen stills at once. You can
use two rolls of slide film and scan them in half a day.
