This is the right way to do it. Note you'll want a 35mm "split reel" of at least the 400' size, on which to load the original film stock... because it just comes on a core, and without side support it can easily fall off and unravel into a huge mess. With a split reel, you unscrew the two halves, carefully lay the core and film down on one half, then screw the other half back on it.
