Documentary Scanning

Hello all. I am working on a documentary (shooting in 4K) and have gathered many newspaper articles, photographs, scrapbook images, etc that I would love to scan and use as cutaways (think Ken burns effect).

I have access to an espon perfection v800 photo. I have very limited experience scanning. I suppose I have a few questions due to the relationship between dpi, resolution, and image size.

1. Do I need to make dpi or resolution adjustments considering my goal is for these images to be displayed on a movie screen or at least a large screen home tv?

2. The images are all different shapes and there a specific formula I can follow?

3. Any general advice is also appreciated!

THanks in advance for your consideration.
