Blueprint Ladder tutorial not working with basic character set up?

Hello all,

First thing to mention, this is literally the first time I have used Blueprints and Matinee. I am impressed by it, it seems like after some practice it will be pretty easy to figure out by myself, but for now, I need your help mighty UE4 wizards.

I have used this tutorial on a project I’ve been working on to set up a character, and it works fine:

I have also set up a lift from this tutorial: A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements and Releases - Unreal Engine Forums

Every step seems to have gone well, the lift works in Matinee, but when I click ‘Play’ and have a little stroll around, the Lift doesn’t work.

My rudimentary understanding of this is telling me that I have only set up a camera for the player and he has no body, so the lift has nothing to collide with. I could be completely wrong.

My question is, using these two tutorials after being set up, how can I make them work together, so I can collide with the platform and move upwards?

Thanks in advance! Happy Unrealling

Please help!
